Peter J. Rabinowitz Gives Paper at International Conference on Narrative

Professor of Comparative Literature Peter J. Rabinowitz delivered a paper, "Can a Sonata Have an Unreliable Narrator?: Focalization, Style, and Musical Rhetoric," at the International Conference on Narrative in Austin, Texas, on May 4. Intended as a contribution to the on-going theoretical discussions of the value of narrative theory in the analysis of music, the paper argued that the concept of the unreliable narrator—normally viewed as an essentially literary device without any musical equivalent—can illuminate the processes by which we listen to music and can increase our appreciation of music's expressive potential.
