Content

This 1984 book was the first to investigate the full implications of Paul Valéry's interest in the relationship between music and poetry. 
The book is more of a survey of all that Valéry had to say on music; it examines in detail the influence of such music upon his work as a poet.
The structure of the book comprises three distinct phases of argument.
In the first part Dr Stimpson details Valéry's contacts with the major developments in twentieth-century French music, and reveals particularly close relationshops with a number of outstanding composers and performers.
Part II explores Valéry's theoretical consideration of the links between music and poetry.
The third section studies the musical techniques in Valéry's poetry - melody, harmonics, rhythm, musique verbale, and recitative.
This will be an important book for serious students of Valéry's poetry and all those interested in the relationship between poetry and music.
