Summary
"In celebration of his talent and in commemoration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of his death, this is the first book-length study in English of the work of Belgian chansonnier Jacques Brel." "Brel and Chanson traces probable influences on the creative process of Brel's early, later and always eclectic reading. It goes on to examine his principal preoccupations as evidenced by the chansons, such as childhood, love and friendship, and human stupidity; and also to elucidate the unique use of language. This study analyzes the complexities inherent in not only writing and composing, but also in the performing a chanson. It considers how Brel's pitiless implication of himself in his every criticism of mankind's shortcomings distinguishes his work." "This study is of great use to anyone interested in twentieth-century popular European culture, and required reading for all those exploring the world of chanson."--Jacket
