Book Spine Poetry vol. 4: Music
The essence of the universal language, distilled.
By Maria Popova
I’ve been celebrating National Poetry Month with an ongoing series of book spine poetry. Today, a short meditation of a “poem” on music.
- Music: Ways of Listening by composer Elliott Schwartz, the source of this fantastic vintage guide to the 7 essential skills for listening to music
- Stylized by Mark Garvey, who tells the “slightly obsessive” story of Strunk and White’s iconic The Elements of Style
- Persuasion, the recent annotated edition of the Jane Austen classic
Catch up on the first three installments, entitled The Future, Get Smarter, and This is New York.
