Musical Modernism: Essays on Language and Music in Modernist Literature
      
Abstracts are invited for a collection that focuses on the ways in which
modernist writers sought to emulate musical forms and styles in their
writing. From Joyce’s claim that writing a novel is like “composing
music,” to Pound’s belief that “poets who will not study music are
defective” through to Eliot’s statement that “a poet may gain much from
the study of music,” there is a sense in which modernist writing had to
be ‘musical.’ As writers moved away from established literary forms,
musical forms often served as the models for new forms in literature.
