Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Erudite, persuasively written... MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW Lucidly written, this book exposes creative and unexpected musical connections among the three artists Broch, Mann, and Kafka. Particularly the main section on Hermann Broch will be a valuable resource for any Broch scholar. MONATSHEFTE Hargraves transcends the customary boundaries of simply analyzing literary works that center on the story of a real or fictional musician...; rather, he sets out to find "music" (as broadly implied in the title) in the writings of Hermann Broch, Thomas Mann, and Franz Kafka based on these writers' own relationship with music. GERMAN STUDIES REVIEW ...rewards the reader with profound insights that are bound to expand his or her view of Broch and Kafka. GERMAN QUARTERLY
