'A Theme with Many Variation'

Gertrude Hudson, Musical Criticism, and Turn-of-the-Century Periodical Culture

Abstract

This essay "explores the central role played by periodical media in enabling women to fashion the art forms with which they were engaged, the languages of critique through which those forms were presented, and the audience to whom they were addressed." Taking a single figure as the starting point, this essay "explores Hudson's use of a Paterian, impressionistic aesthetic to mediate questions of voice and audience, and to navigate the shifting politics of place and gender. This notion of music as a medium within the writing, rather than simply being described by it, allowed Hudson to break free from the conventional languages of critique, an experiment facilitated by the format of the periodicals in which she appeared". (BInckes and Synder: 76).
