The dramatic counterpoint created by the last utterances of father and daughter is significant. Shakespeare gives Shylock, not Jessica, the moving argument for the humanity of the Jew, for the essential identity of the Jewish and Christian soul (3.1.46-64). In the background are the battles and warlike appearance of the elder Hamlet, the hasty military preparations of Denmark—casting of “brazen cannon,” building of ships, trafficking in “implements of war”—and always there are the restless goings-on of militant young Fortinbras. (University of Florida Press, 1955, 1961). “Other Voices: The Sweet, Dangerous Air(s) of Shakespeare's Tempest.” Shakespeare Studies 24 (1996): 241-74. Harbingers of more far-reaching explorations can be found in the opening and closing passages of the play. For he has yet to be reminded by Ariel that “the rarer action” is one of loving forgiveness, and there is that crucial moment when it seems as if his “nobler reason” will be as baseless as the fabric of his vision. I quote throughout from William Shakespeare, The Complete Plays, ed. An episodic story became in his mind a thing of dreams and themes, its title borrowed from the Feast of the Epiphany, the celebration of a mysterious revelation generously offered and joyfully received. Finally, however, at Belmont, music—and musical speech—lose their formerly seductive power. It is left to Emilia, whose part is greatly strengthened in the Folio, to take over the feminine strength of the play after Desdemona's death18 to bring Othello to a recognition of the truth. The tempo increased dramatically, and the pitch of the music was dropped slightly to get this feeling. Shakespeare's frequent tributes to the power of music, his apt use of musical terms and his many allusions to musical instruments, are, of course, well known. We are talking now about what may be called Shakespeare's unique “choreography.” In a theatre of non-illusion, where the controlling limitations of realism in speech and behavior did not obtain, we cannot be sure that dance was not also a characteristic of the artificial style of movement that belonged to the Elizabethan stage. The Christians are, as Bassanio himself exclaims to Gratiano, “friends / That purpose merriment” (2.2.189-90). The fact that Lepidus gets stinking and boasts of his power, reveals his inferiority to the others, and it is pretty clear that the Machiavellian Octavius is not quite as tight as he pretends. [In the following essay, originally delivered as a lecture in 1971, Ingram explores Shakespeare's unconventional use of military music in the English history plays, especially Henry VI, Part 1. Such an interpretation would make this music somewhat akin to musica humana in its negative light. Now, when Caliban speaks, he does not curse, but says he will be “wise hereafter, / And seek for grace” (5.1.294-95). Unlike the Indian boy, Viola is a character we know and love, but like him she is the innocent victim of a lovers' vicious quarrel. This sound, then, is clearly separate from Prospero, as seems demonstrated partly by the way in which Caliban plans to overthrow Prospero, not just politically but linguistically—telling Stephano first to “possess his books,” the play's metonym not only for Prospero's art and cunning but for language, the word itself. But The Tempest radically deconstructs this kind of musical symbolism by several means, which I shall explore in the middle sections of this essay. In “Love in Venice,” Catherine Belsey appears ready to reverse the sway of the “harmonizing habit” that critics have brought to the play.30 But while she questions the assumptions of Barber and Danson, Belsey offers a sweeping description of love in Venice that leads her to reduce Lorenzo's talk about the “muddy vesture of decay” to putatively historical truths about the body and desire. On the other hand, the music of a dumb race who had invented instruments would be precise but dull, for the players would not know what it means to strive after expression, to make their instruments “sing.” The kind of effect they would make is the kind we condemn in a pianist when we say: “He just plays the notes.”. The stage picture of an overly courteous Cassio taking Desdemona ‘by the palm’ and kissing his fingers (in a manner still practised by Italians wishing to impress and still regarded with suspicion and derision by Englishmen) is instantly replaced by that of Othello and Desdemona in each other's arms. Prospero's music had made Alonso and his company mad, yet that madness was a necessary prelude to their recognition of guilt and repentance. Belsey writes that all of the characters in the play look “back to a world, fast disappearing in the late sixteenth century, where love was seen as anarchic, destructive, dangerous.” Belsey does not uphold, apparently, Jessica's distinction between false and true vows, between destructive and true love. 70-71. If the audience cannot share Pericles' mystical experience, we can nevertheless share his dream-vision, and we have, moreover, regained our bearings, for we know why the goddess directs Pericles toward Ephesus. We are meant to be horrified both by what she sings and by the fact that she sings at all. Most modern critics agree that even though Shakespeare incorporated classical and Neoplatonic theories in his plays, he also questioned the value and power of music. Yet in this play, so much of which is concerned with art, particularly music, as an act of faith in harmony in the face of chaos, the audience itself is called upon to participate in an act of faith and imagination, for it must be willing to believe that Pericles has heard the music of the spheres, and yet it is not assured that the painful adventures of the Prince of Tyre have come to an end. For Shylock, who rejects such purposing, the possibility for merriment exists only in the “merry sport” of his “bond” (1.3.139-47). As more and more people became disillusioned with the excesses and corruptions of James's court, the gap between the masque ideal and the reality it was supposed to reflect became ever harder to paper over, and the educational potential of the masque less and less easy to credit. Although this passage may be a vestigial remnant of an episode from the real Gower's “Apollonius of Tyre” in which Apollonius gives the princess a music lesson, it is possible that Pericles as acted contained an interlude between II.iii. While the characters in the play are not themselves participants in the masque, yet the final scene of the play does approach indirectly the question of the relationship between a masquer and the role he enacts. Until Act Four he is held in isolation from all but Antonio, himself an isolate, and he lives in a time-scheme that has not even a fictional reality. Trumpets. Ulysses has dominated the proceedings, but, before anything resembling a plan of action to be taken can be introduced, a tucket interrupts and Aeneas enters to play his ornate and ironic little comedy of being uncertain which noble man is Agamemnon. iv. Writers both for the court and for the public theatre were moved to explore that gap. But a major contribution to the power of this “scene”—which the audience imagines but does not see—is a hair-raising death symphony, some of it heard and some of it not, which is played as the murder proceeds in our imagination. All rights reserved. With Attali's opposition between music and noise we can return to Ophelia's mad singing and see how it functions as a discursive dissonance within the play. In the earlier dramas he accompanies lines of dialogue with conventional music, which is introduced into the statement of the play in what we might call in general an illustrative function. He compels us to take sides even as he warns of the dangers of doing so. Its social analogues are those forms of musical practice that are sanctioned by Church and State, and serve the interests of hegemonic groups: the music played at weddings, for example, which symbolizes the containment of sexual desire within the hierarchical “concord” of marriage. 45). So much of the play has circled round the anguish of rejection: Olivia rejects Orsino, Sir Andrew and Malvolio; Viola rejects Olivia and Antonio; Feste as Sir Thopas rejects Malvolio; we have just witnessed the rejection of ‘Cesario’ by Orsino and of Sir Andrew by Sir Toby: now the rejections are over. The frustration common to all these scenes might indeed be held to form the ‘deep structure’ of the play (to borrow a linguistic term). is extrapolated by Ficino, who gives of it a quasi-imperialistic definition in his commentary on the Timœus: Musical sound moves the body by the movement of the air; by purified air it excites the airy spirit, which is the bond of body and soul; by emotion it affects the senses and at the same time the soul; by meaning it affects the mind; finally by the very movement of its subtle air it penetrates strongly; by its temperament it flows smoothly; by its consonant quality it floods us with a wonderful pleasure; by its nature, both spiritual and natural, it at once seizes and claims as its own man in his entirety.23. In practice, it is for us to recognize the form and shape of these arts of voice and body, ears and eyes, and to unblur their edges. Informed by Launcelot about “a masque,” Shylock warns, more specifically, about the danger of music: Fearful of the sexual allure of a Christian fool, Shylock commands Jessica not to “thrust” her “[maiden]head” into “the public street.” The music played by Christians, warns Shylock, is like the “vile squealing” of pigs. Ulysses savagely sums up this sour picture of fair worth: At this instant comes the Trojan answer to Ajax' ‘brazen pipe.’ ‘Enter all of Troy, Hector, Paris, Aeneas, Helenus, Troilus, and Attendants,’ with an actual and symbolic flourish, superb and rich on the heels of the cheap comedy just played. For Caliban's world thereby possesses what Stephen Greenblatt has called “opacity,” Shakespeare's acknowledgement of “independence and integrity” in “Caliban's construction of reality.”61 Greenblatt finds this quality in the words Caliban uses;62 I locate it, rather, in the sounds (among them musical ones) that he makes and that he understands or is “in tune” with. Portia addresses Jessica precisely on the subject of exclusion, of “being absent”: Jessica does not say a word. In the first two acts, for instance, the contrasts between domestic quarrels and foreign warfare are as much musical as anything else. Cloten is a lost soul without conscience or shame. But this ethereal music, invented by man in imitation of divine harmony, can also be used by man as he sometimes uses language and costume (and as Antiochus does here), to whiten the sepulchre—to lie. The first point to make is that this song appears to have been a popular song of the time. Cynthia Lewis, “Antonio and Alienation in The Merchant of Venice,” South Atlantic Review 48 (1983) 20. Roland Barthes, “Rasch,” in The Responsibility of Forms, trans. Whatever the mystery of Antonio's sadness, Antonio's conception of merriment is Socratic in its basic terms: one needs to reattune (re-create) one's soul morally before one can achieve merriment (recreation). Inherent in stage music is therefore a set of discourses making up an implicit system of exchange, one obvious aspect of which is the variety of the responses of stage audiences, in the form of verbal commentaries, and those of the paying audience more or less ironically anticipated or echoed on the stage. He stresses, as Jonson so often does, the importance of the spectator's conspiracy in enabling the masque to work. The price that Ophelia herself pays is high; her moment of self-expression is, in Showalter's words, “quickly followed, as if in retribution, by her death.”34 Catherine Clément has argued that this narrative pattern is typical of opera, in which heroines are “undone” by a plot that climaxes in “their glorious moment: a sung death.”35 Indeed, Ophelia in her madness resembles another “noisy” heroine, Lucia di Lammermoor, whose mad scene is similarly framed by the reactions of an audience.36. 427-46. But neither of these possible views can be uppermost in the audience's mind. Beneath that recognition-music, the Viola theme reasserts itself, now in the major key, as she reverts to the womanhood that completes the story. As his metaphor suggests, Barthes sees this escape as positive, liberating a suppressed voluptuousness in both language and listener. Compares the different uses of musical passages as well as the contrasting effects of tuned and untuned instruments in the tragedies, particularly Hamlet, Macbeth, Othello, and Antony and Cleopatra. J. W. Hales and F. J. Furnivall, Bishop Percy's Folio Manuscript (London, 1867-8), vol. Once again, Shakespeare offers no explanation for the apparent discrepancy. This is most strikingly true of the earlier plays. A contemporary of Shakespeare's, Thomas Dekker, quipped that in theatrical “Consorts many of the Instruments are for the most part out of tune,” and he ridicules the typical miscreant thus: “let the Poet set the note of his Numbers, even to Apollo's owne Lyre, the Player will have his owne Crochets, and sing false notes, in despite of all the rules of Musick.”10 The era's greatest tragedian, Richard Burbage, was on the other hand praised for his musicality. Even the most ordinary image is coloured by this. She endorses the view that the moonlit night and the consort of viols that accompany these lines combine to present “a vision of human love and universal concord.” In sharp contrast, Marc Berley (2000) rejects the notion that Lorenzo's speech is a straightforward summary of standard theories of music, emphasizing instead its complex significance and Jessica's ambiguous response to it. Its quieter timbre and subtler rhythms would contrast strongly with the louder sound and simpler, stronger rhythms of the conventional flourishes. That which chiefly defines, gives value to woman—her sexuality—makes her, at once, powerless (able to be seduced) and dangerously powerful (able to seduce and destroy virtue, including her own). It sorts oddly with the debate that went before as well as with the hard political discussion of how best to handle it that follows between Ulysses and Nestor. Shakespeare’s works area unit noted throughout the globe, however his personal life is shrouded in mystery. I'll be an auditor.”, I am inclined to think the aural bias of an Elizabethan theatrical event is hinted in Caesar's remark about Cassius: “he loves no plays, / As thou dost, Antony; he hears no music.” This privileging of the aural over the visual is certainly expressed in Volumnia's acerbic observation, in Coriolanus, about the Roman plebeians (the sort who, in London, would be the groundlings in a Globe Theatre audience): “the eyes of th' ignorant [are] / More learned than the ears.” Hamlet, too, may be indicating to us the priority of vocalism on the stage of the day in his talk to the traveling players. Characters, Complete Works, ed. It is by this means that Ferdinand, having been separated from his father and comrades by Prospero's magic, is led to shore. Of course, Kristeva is here using “music” and “musical” metaphorically, to refer to the rhythms and sonorities of language. Vincentio, the Duke, is reputed, if only by Lucio, to have “some feeling” of the merry “sport” of getting bastards. The long ‘temptation’ scene in which this speech occurs is preceded by a deceptively short and seemingly insignificant scene (3.2) in which Othello enters with his aides, dispatches a letter to the Senate, and then departs to inspect the fortifications. She then offers a truism that hints at future troubles: “But love is blind, and lovers cannot see / The pretty follies that themselves commit” (2.6.36-37). Malvolio introduces it by dropping the love-token; ‘If it be worth stooping for, there it lies in your eyes; if not, be it his that finds it’ (II. 4) What effect does this music have upon those who listen to it? Throughout the play the clash between the chivalric pretence and the political reality is brilliantly marked by the clear interjections of the trumpet. In Act V he adds that. The talk slides easily, if not glibly, to war as if it were some amusing game, the uneasy juxtaposition excellently caught in the image of Helen's white fingers working the stubborn buckles of Hector's armour. Gonzalo thinks the shapes' “manners” more gentle than human kind, while Sebastian wants to eat the food they have placed in front of him. Iago's disparagement and suspicion of Desdemona's musical and other qualities is almost immediately challenged by the sound of a Venetian trumpet. iii., and to their surprisingly detailed plans; surprising, that is, in a play not much concerned with details of time and place. Our summaries and analyses are written by experts, and your questions are answered by real teachers. He greets her as the soldier-hero and she him as the supporting lover: ‘My fair warrior … My dear Othello’ (2.1.180). H. Rackham (London, 1932). Any harmony in Belmont must, if not resolve, at least include these discordant elements. Shakespeare exploited brilliantly the possibilities of enrichment that lay in the use of music. Merchant is a much deeper play, less purely enjoyable, but more ripe for ongoing contemplation, with Jessica as its dissonant center. Prefaces to Shakespeare, second series (1930), p. 209. It can also be a gendered discourse, to the extent that the dramatic meanings of singing in a particular scene are bound up with the cultural construction of music and musical activity as “feminine.” In other words, there was a significant analogy between the “place” of song on the early modern English stage and the place of both women and music in early modern English culture—one that Shakespeare exploited in his representation of women's song. A study of Merchant, … will help us better to appreciate Shakespeare's innovative articulations of the “sweet power” of music and poetry, as well as the ways they shaped profoundly both the opportunities and limits of future poets who would aspire to turn poetry into song. The flourish at Flint Castle is part of that pageantry which Richard knew as his prerogative, and relished so much at Coventry, turned sour: now the decision has been rendered against Richard and the flourish marks the end of his effective rule. Ed. iii., when Claudio comes to grieve for his dead Hero at “the monument of Leonato,” we should not be surprised to find “Balthasar and musicians” trailing behind him, ready to answer the clear injunction with some form of religious music. The second is a matter of staging, but one of interpretive significance: clearly Pericles is the only character on stage who hears the music of the spheres, but does the audience hear it with him, and if so, what does it sound like? Against the view of Shakespeare's music as transhistorical, transcendent, univocal, more signified than signifying, more soul than body, I take a different theoretical approach. Betsy Wing (Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 1988), pp. At the same time, the listener, through his/her identification with music, enters into a relationship with the performer's body that Barthes describes as “erotic.”11 For Barthes, then, music's power lies in its capacity to produce jouissance, the intense, ego-fragmenting pleasure that originates in “an excess of the text.”12 Significantly, he associates the excess of the musical text with madness: The body passes into music without any relay but the signifier. And that is not what we get. In The Tempest there is the paradox that all its goodly visions issue not from the self-projection of a rich and stable court, but from the power of a magician who inhabits a ‘full poor cell’ on a desert island. For wee had no weares of fish, neither coulde our men skill of the making of them. His entrance removes the scales from the eyes of all the on-stage characters. But in the elopement scene, Jessica shows herself to be very much “to his manners”: while trying to rid herself of the shame of being her father's child, Jessica “gilds” herself with her father's ducats. Critics who avoid this first difficulty usually fall into the second: they consider the songs as music, but music not enacted but abstracted, as an idea, and one that always connotes or symbolizes essentially the same things or performs the same function. Merchant is a play about polarizing worldviews causing people to assert one as true and the other as the false pursuit of merriment. These papers were written primarily by students and provide critical analysis of various sonnets by William Shakespeare. The Elizabethan stage also had a wide range of dances to choose from: coarser, country dances like the roundel, the hay, and the jig were balanced by more courtly dances like the pavan, the measure, the canary, and the cinquepace, or “sink-a-pace” as Sir Toby Belch calls it. A retreat is sounded and the fighters enter, but from a real battlefield, not a place of ornate ritual combat: ‘Look you what hacks are on his helmet. The one song Caliban sings himself is sung “drunkenly,” evoking from Trinculo just the response—“A howling monster! He is shown, therefore, as someone who does not know one note from another. Throughout the first half of the play in every speech of more than half-a-dozen lines, he manages to combine with perfect ease the most earnest consideration of state affairs with equally earnest and loving reference to his wife. The fact that we, the audience, have already witnessed Iago's skilful manipulation of Cassio and Roderigo enables us to accept that his successful transformation of Othello is possible. Justice has triumphed over injustice, not because it is more harmonious, but because it commands superior force; one might even say because it is louder. And there was much to hear besides the spoken lines: we find directions for peals of ordnance, ringing of bells, thunder, wind, the barking of dogs. The song's music—its “lively” tempo, rhythms, harmonies—materializes this movement. Johnson's song begins decisively in G major (with five iterations of the tonic note in the first two measures), lending it a full, open quality not suggestive of trouble or death. Either way, we will see, Jessica's last line presents us with an engaging problem that centers on the conflict between practical and speculative approaches to music. They finally have got it both ways. At first the close juxtaposition of the song with the curative heavenly music suggests that they both belong to the same symbolic realm, but as the words of the song register, the difference between them is sharply established. Islam (2010), a Bangladeshi author, wrote an article about works titles by being influenced by Shakespeare. In Much Ado about Nothing, V. Feminine Endings: Music, Gender, Sexuality (Minneapolis: Univ. A. P. Rossiter, Angel with Horns (London: Longmans, 1961), offers a general discussion of the reasons “problematical” plays might be given the title “Problem Plays” and suggests that perhaps we ought “no longer be content with an eternal triangle of three “Problem Plays.” The matter is beyond the scope of this chapter, but I am suggesting a number of problems, as well as a central one large enough to include Merchant in the general discussion. i. We are but a step away from the dance as yet another art form making its contribution to Elizabethan drama. To some extent, this view has followed from the fact that for the Elizabethans, music was, at least in part, “transcendent.” It functioned as a potent symbol, a component of the complex ancient traditions of Plato and Pythagoras and later of Boethius. But in the contexts in which Shakespeare places them, they sound shocking. We hear it, through the stage direction, “A flourish of trumpets and 2. peeces goes of” (Q2), and through Hamlet's description: Kettle drum, trumpet, and cannon reappear in the lines and actually sound again, in the final scene of the play, when the crafty Claudius for the last time pretends friendship toward his nephew-son. M. C. Horowitz, A. J. Cruz and W. A. Furman (University of Illinois Press, Urbana and Chicago, 1988), p. 45. The popular picture of the Elizabethan actor ranting his lines on a poor bare stage with only his words to provide scenery, sound, and atmosphere hardly agrees with the almost incredible riches recognized elsewhere in Elizabethan life. Gertrude's description of Ophelia's drowning aestheticizes her madness, makes it “pretty,” and in so doing makes it safe for the easier, distancing responses of pity and compassion; the Siren has become merely “mermaid-like.” On the discursive level, too, Gertrude's verbal lyricism performs a crucial function: it re-appropriates Ophelia's music by inscribing it in the containing verbal structures, the metaphorical “music” of poetry.
