Music analyses An annotated guide to the literature
New York: Schirmer Books, 1991, 716 p.
This is what Harold J. Diamond had to say:
An analytic essay on the slow movement of the Ninth Symphony. Introductory remarks discuss background and genesis. Analytic discussion is on pp.50-59. Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles is identified as the programmatic basis; parallels between the story and the music are identified. Structure described.
