Boulez and Mallarmé a study in poetic influence

Mallarme died in 1898, but his centrality to the aesthetic thinking of the twentieth century is firmly established. Of this there exists no more striking affirmation than the association of his name with that of Boulez, a musician renowned for his commitment to the new. In the late 1950s, at a crucial point in his development, the composer chose the poet as his guide. In this study, Mary Breatnach looks at a fascinating irony In Boulez's choice. Mallarme's work is shown to be a special kind of 'music', set against the art of sounds with which we are familiar, In part a result of his avowed Intention to take back from that art an allusiveness and structural complexity which, he believed, belonged to poetry.
