    Schoenberg and Words disentangles significant aspects of the composer's complex relationship to fin-de-siecle modernism, especially in its Viennese variety. The eleven new essays examine the texts and contexts of works Schoenberg composed from the mid-1890s through 1916 and his writings on theoretical, aesthetic, and ethical issues.


    Charlotte M. Cross received a PhD. in Historical Musicology from Columbia University in 1992 and has published extensively on Schoenberg. Russell A. Berman is Chair of German Studies at Stanford University and author of Enlightenment of Empire: Colonial Discourse in German Culture (1998).
