Abstract

‘Joyceian Aesthetics, Ethnic Memory, and Mythopoetic Imagination in the Music of Frank Corcoran’ offers an overview of the music of Irish composer Frank Corcoran through a comparative analysis of his aesthetics and those employed by James Joyce. Under the themes of deconstruction and assemblage, structural application, the relationship between shared elements such as onomatopoeia and abstraction (the abstract-figurative dichotomy) and a common desire to create a mythopoetic Irish consciousness in their work, this essay investigates the ways in which Corcoran’s music has continued in the late 20th century the Modernist project initiated by Joyce at the beginning of that century.
