Table of Contents

Contents: Chapter I: biographical basis for Stevens' use of music - II-IV: focuses on musical figures and compositional strategies - V: analyzes two contemporary musical settings of Stevens' poems. This work synthesizes preexisting commentary on Stevens and music and focuses on «developing variation» as the «decomposer's» method. To date, no large-scale study of Stevens has included music in its agenda.
