More > struggle to reconcile her increasingly unorthodox views on femininity and motherhood with the prevailing social attitudes of the turn-of-the-century South. It is one of the earliest American novels that focuses on women's issues without condescension. It is also widely seen as a landmark work of early feminism.

The first movement of the B flat minor Sonata is for me something mighty - like a sculpture in rock. It can only be compared perhaps with the first movement of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. This... More > section of Chopin's work is-to my mind - on a par with the loftiest heights reached by such composers as Beethoven. (Lutoslawski) Chopin's sonatas occupy an exceptional place in the history of nineteenth-century music, alongside the most magnificent works of Beethoven, Schubert, Liszt and Brahms. Chopin composed four sonatas, given below in the order they were written: Sonata in C minor, Op. 4 (composed 1827-1828, first published 1851) Sonata in B flat minor, Op. 35 (Funeral March 1837, whole work 1839, published 1840) Sonata in B minor, Op. 58 (1844, published 1845) Sonata in G minor for piano and cello, Op. 65 (1846-1847, published 1847)< Less

More > since the name "scherzo" (It.) literally means "joke", whereas Chopin's scherzos are almost never humorous or light-hearted. Quite the contrary: the four expansive one-movement works to which Chopin gave the title scherzo are marked with a drama and form which were unprecedented in the genre. They are given here in chronological order: Scherzo in B minor, Op. 20, published in 1835 (date of composition difficult to establish precisely) Scherzo in B flat minor, Op. 31, completed 1837 and published the same year Scherzo in C sharp minor, Op. 39, composed 1839, published the following year Scherzo in E major, Op. 54, composed 1842-1843, published 1843< Less

In Part Two of this remarkable work Huneker presents a brilliant piece-by-piece review of the entire collection of Chopin's music, identifying him as the most poetic of composers.
