The Influence of Oscar Wilde on W B Yeats Book Excerpt:

This book asserts that Oscar Wilde (1854 – 1900) was a major precursor of W.B. Yeats (1865 – 1939), and shows how Wilde’s image and intellect set in train a powerful influence within Yeats’s creative imagination that remained active throughout the poet’s life. The intellectual concepts, metaphysical speculations and artistic symbols and images which Yeats appropriated from Wilde changed the poet’s perspective and informed the imaginative system of beliefs that Yeats formulated as the basis of his dramatic and poetic work. Section One, 'Influence and Identity' (1888 – 1895), explores the personal relationship of these two writers, their nationality and historical context as factors in influence. Section Two, 'Mask and Image' (1888 – 1917), traces the creative process leading to Yeats’s construction of the antithetical mask, and his ideas on image, in relation to the role of Wilde as his precursor. Finally, 'Salomé: Symbolism, Dance and Theories of Being' (1891 – 1939) concentrates on the immense influence that Wilde’s symbolist play, Salomé, wrought on Yeats’s imaginative work and creative sensibility.

Structural Novelty and Tradition in the Early Romantic Piano Concerto Book Excerpt:

In the early nineteenth century, seven composers experimented with the design of the piano concerto at roughly the same time. Two mature figures - Johann Baptist Cramer and Carl Maria von Weber - and five young firebrands - Felix Mendelssohn, Valentin Alkan, Clara Wieck, Robert Schumann and Franz Liszt - probed the possibilities and challenged the traditions of the genre regarded as problematic, and even anachronistic by the 1830s. Lindeman considers each composer's approach to concerto form in a lucid and engaging account. He then pairs this with an analysis of their concertos, including a combination of LaRue timelines and Schenkerian techniques that is logical and insightful. A different perspective is seen in the reviews of Robert Schumann in his Neue Zeietschrift für Musik. The critic's profound dismay with the state of the noble genre is apparent in his reviews of concertos by the Parisian virtuoisi, which he regarded with particular disdain. Lindeman's overview reveals that Schumann's criticism offers a touchstone for the reformulation of the genre in the experimental works of the seven composers. Lindeman's book includes measure-by-measure timeline analyses of the first movements of over 100 concertos. Included are all those of Mozart, Cramer, Beethoven, Hummel, Weber, Field, Moscheles, Alkan, Chopin, Mendelssohn, Wieck, Schumann, and Liszt, plus examples by Sterndale Bennett, Boiëldieu, Burgmüller, Czerny, Dussek, Ries, and Steibelt. Structural Novelty and Tradition in the Early Romantic Piano Concerto offers the first detailed examination of a critical time in the development of the form. It is an indispensable reference tool for anyone interested in the piano concerto genre.

Art and Christhood Book Excerpt:

In this stimulating new study, Guy Willoughby suggests that Oscar Wilde's imaginative engagement with the figure of Jesus Christ, shorn of His attachment to ecclesiastical dogma, is a key to the coherence and import of the fin de siecle writer's aesthetics. Through a rigorous but elegant discourse on each of Wilde's major (and minor) works, Willoughby argues that the author's abiding ethical and aesthetic themes coalesce around the figure referred to in De Profundis as "the precursor of the Romantic movement in life." The works discussed in detail include the fairy tales, the Poems in Prose, The Picture of Dorian Gray, the poetic dramas, essays, and Wilde's juvenile and mature verse. In contrast to those critics who have dismissed Oscar Wilde's thematic confusion or contrivance, and his "aesthetic" disdain for "the world of actual existence" (as he called it), Guy Willoughby asserts that Wilde's most urgent, overriding interest was in the relationship of art to life - and that, ultimately, his concern was to merge the two constructs, to fuse the aesthetic impulse into a radical new mode of experience. In developing this radical impulse, which must strike a sympathetic chord in our contemporary, "postmodern" reevaluation of traditional boundaries, Willoughby finds that Wilde concretized his mature, reformulated aestheticism by rereading the mission and career of Christ. In one sense, Wilde's treatment of the numinous founder of Christianity recapitulates the search of nineteenth-century scholarship for the "historical Jesus," and Willoughby traces affinities in Wilde's work with the secular Christologies of Ernest Renan and Matthew Arnold. But in a strikingly contemporary sense Wilde looks forward to Paul Tillich or Dietrich Bonhoeffer, for his Christ is an insistent iconoclast and systembreaker, his vision an impetus for a perpetual recasting of ethical or ideological distinctions. It is thus that the artist is Christ's most notable imitator, for in the Wildean schema art is a necessarily dangerous and disruptive force. Willoughby gives a full account of the extraordinary range of Wilde's generic and stylistic departures, and demonstrates that the complexity and surprise of these structural choices accords with the author's aesthetic project. In particular, Willoughby details Wilde's shrewd mining of strains in Western myth and symbolism, and the rich tension between Hellenic and Hebraic postures that is a vital dialogic force in his essays, plays and tales. Drawing on elements from myth and genre criticism, as well as literary theory, Guy Willoughby establishes Oscar Wilde as a seminal writer standing Janus-like between the Victorian and Modernist sensibilities, and a writer whose essays into aesthetic theory and practice are perhaps best appreciated today. This book marks an important juncture in our understanding of both Oscar Wilde and the radical aestheticism he initiated in British cultural debates.
