Abstract

This study will focus on how literary music-character pairing can effectively and uniquely convey characteral identity in a manner unattainable through words alone. It will explore what it is about music’s semantically abstract language that specifically allows for such revelation, through a focused study of the character of Jonah Strom and his association with John Dowland’s song Time Stands Still in Richard Powers’ novel The Time of Our Singing.
