Notes

Abstract: This thesis examines the concepts of the �first idea� and �imagined reality� in selected works of the American Modernist poet Wallace Stevens, through critical analysis and music composition. It is divided into three parts: two sections of written work, and a CD containing three �sonic studies.� The poems discussed are �Sunday Morning,� �The Idea of Order at Key West,� and �The Man on the Dump.� The first part defines these concepts in the context of Stevens� body of work, then focuses on the three poems. This part is devoted to interpretation and critical analysis, exploring how the concepts of imagined reality and the first idea manifest and why they are important in the chosen poems, and Stevens� work in general. The second part serves as a bridge between the first and third, examining the importance of sound and voice in the poems, and introducing and describing the corresponding sonic studies. The final section is the audio CD of the sonic studies, which are musical pieces created using various types of digital synthesis, sampling, and sound processing techniques. These pieces are intended to supplement and provide further exploration of the ideas in the poems. With this study I have found that sound, and it�s human manifestation, voice, are vitally important to understanding the ideas that underpin Wallace Stevens� verse.
