Sample text

Less than a year earlier, Schumann had positioned Clara in a similar fashion. 78 Schumann’s creation of a Schubertian Mädchencharakter was a canny literary strategy that was rooted in both aesthetic tradition and personal experience. If ❧ robert schumann’s schubert 27 Schumann the critic made subtle use of gendered language, one is inevitably drawn to ask what resonance, if any, was there in his music of the period?
