Music and Levels of Narration in Film : Steps Across the Border Paperback

Description

This is the first book-length study of the narratology of film music.

It brings together work on film music theory and analysis and the literature of narratology and film narratology.

It proposes a narratological toolkit for the description and analysis of music in film.

It is an indispensable resource for anyone researching or studying film music or film narratology.

The first book-length study of film music narratology, "Music and Levels of Narration in Film" brings together the so-far piecemeal scholarly contributions on the subject.

Extending the discussion beyond the current fixation on the diegetic/non-diegetic distinction (music that is or is not understood as part of the story world of a film), Heldt systematically discusses music on different levels of narration: from the extra-fictional to 'focalizations' of subjectivity, and music's movement between them.

Heldt proposes a toolkit of narratological concepts for understanding film music and introduces the reader to the less widely known French and German language literature on the subject. Including a study of genres and of the narrative strategies of music in individual films, this book is an indispensable resource for anyone researching or studying film music or film narratology.
