About this product
- DescriptionIn this insightful and provocative essay, Peter Kivy argues that there are distinct analogies between silent reading and performance. Readers have an experience when they read silently to themselves akin to the experience one would have had when the rhapsode recited Homer to the citizens of Plato's Athens.
- Author BiographyPeter Kivy is Board of Governors Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University and a past president of the American Society for Aesthetics. He is author of The Possessor and the Possessed: Handel, Mozart, Beethoven, and the Idea of Musical Genius (2001), New Essays on Musical Understanding (2001), and Introduction to a Philosophy of Music (2002), and editor of The Blackwell Guide to Aesthetics (Blackwell, 2004).
