Wallace compares Bronte and Beethoven through a close examination of the Romantic traits that their works share and extends literary criticism into a new context where equilibrium, balance, proportion, and symmetry serve as a fulcrum for a new understanding of the formal parallels, the moods and emotions that connect music and literature."

Review:

"This challenging integrative study offers some clever analytical insights. It includes thorough notes and a useful index."--"Choice"

"[Wallace] has carried off a difficult and complex subject with grace and assurance. . . . In bringing Bronte and Beethoven together, moreover, Wallace has created a book that reaches beyond the two individuals he has so effectively compared to touch as well on questions of aesthetics and creativity themselves."--"Victorian Studies"

"Wallace's eye-opening (and ear-dilating) accomplishment . . . has left us much to contemplate-indeed, he has made a major contribution to the study of literature and music, to our knowledge of Romanticism and European culture in the early nineteenth century, and to the refinement and coherence of our perception of masterworks of Beethoven and Emily Bronte."--"National Review"
