Book Description Cornell University Press, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. I like these songs better than all the rest, and someday you will too, Franz Schubert told the friends who were the first to hear his song cycle, Winterreise. These lieder have always found admiring audiences, but the poetry he chose to set them to has been widely regarded as weak and trivial. In Retracing a Winter s Journey, Susan Youens looks not only at Schubert s music but at the poetry, drawn from the works of Wilhelm Muller, who once wrote in his diary, perhaps there is a kindred spirit somewhere who will hear the tunes behind the words and give them back to me! Youens maintains that Muller, in depicting the wanderings of the alienated lover, produced poetry that was simple but not simple-minded, poetry that embraced simplicity as part of its meaning. In her view, Muller used the ruder folk forms to give his verse greater immediacy, to convey more powerfully the wanderer s complex inner state. Youens addresses many different aspects of Winterreise the cultural milieu to which it belonged, the genesis of both the poetry and the music, Schubert s transformation of poetic cycle into music, the philosophical dimension of the work, and its musical structure.
