"Schoenberg and Words" disentangles significant aspects of the composer's complex relationship to fin-de-siecle modernism, especially in its Viennese variety. The eleven new essays examine the texts and contexts of works Schoenberg composed from the mid-1890s through 1916 and his writings on theoretical, aesthetic, and ethical issues.
