How the Author of ‘Ragtime’ Taught an Aspiring Writer to Hear the Music


This is when it occurred: As I be taught “The Waves,” I started to “hear” language as if for the first time. It was as if a window flew open, and the sounds of the creator’s phrases rushed in. I began to uncover the sonic patterns of Woolf’s sentences, how she composed a music all her personal collectively collectively alongside collectively alongside alongside collectively alongside

In the novel’s first half, Woolf writes from Bernard’s perspective: “We shall sink like swimmers just touching the ground with the tips of their toes. We shall sink through the green air of the leaves, Susan. We sink as we run. The waves close over us, the beech leaves meet above our heads.” I grew to flip into attuned to the cumulative sounds of one sentence after one utterly utterly utterly utterly utterly utterly utterly

Here is language, I believed as I be taught Woolf. Here is life.

utterly utterly utterly utterly utterly utterly utterly utterly completely absolutely completely absolutely absolutely utterly totally different cognitive pathway in my concepts. Or almost undoubtedly it was the indisputable fact that Woolf’s novel is constructed with a kind of acoustic establishing; the sounds of her sentences carry the narrative alongside. Later, I be taught in Elicia Clements’s “Virginia Woolf: Music, Sound, Language” (2019) that Woolf wrote in a letter to Elizabeth Trevelyan, a Dutch musician: “I always think of my books as music before I write them.” (In the an comparable e e e information, Clements writes that Woolf was listening to Beethoven’s late String Quartet in B flat obligatory, Op. 130, and that this chamber work impressed heaps of “The Waves.”) I give it some thought was a combination of these circumstances: my broken shoulder and lack of potential to write, Woolf’s distinctive soundscapes and the obligatory engagement that Doctorow was pressing on us.

During the class whereby we outfitted “The Waves,” Doctorow spoke about how Woolf’s lyricism underscored the march of time in the novel. Like Kafka in “The Metamorphosis” and Dante in the “Inferno,” he seen, Woolf animated the inevitable movement in path of loss of life by means of her language, the rhythmic resonance of her sentences and her refined narrative enchancment. The fashionable interplay of these parts opened up this path of which suggests for the reader.

For the earlier decade, I’ve educated the widespread ring of tinnitus in that ear and now positioned on a listening to help. Yet the sounds of discovering out are very heaps alive in my head. Occasionally, I’ll commit to memory a poem by one of my favorite poets — Marie Howe, say, or Jean Valentine — and for a spell I do know the sound of her phrases intimately, almost like a heartbeat. All of that’s thanks to Doctorow and what he taught me: Read deeply, steal what it’s potential you’d and all the time focus for the music.
