This is the first book-length study of the narratology of film music. It brings together work on film music theory and analysis and the literature of narratology and film narratology. It proposes a narratological toolkit for the description and analysis of music in film. It is an indispensable resource for anyone researching or studying film music or film narratology. The first book-length study of film music narratology, "Music and Levels of Narration in Film" brings together the so-far piecemeal scholarly contributions on the subject. Extending the discussion beyond the current fixation on the diegetic/non-diegetic distinction (music that is or is not understood as part of the story world of a film), Heldt systematically discusses music on different levels of narration: from the extra-fictional to 'focalizations' of subjectivity, and music's movement between them. Heldt proposes a toolkit of narratological concepts for understanding film music and introduces the reader to the less widely known French and German language literature on the subject. Including a study of genres and of the narrative strategies of music in individual films, this book is an indispensable resource for anyone researching or studying film music or film narratology.

"The first book-length study of musical narrativity, Heldt's Music and Levelsof Narration in Film: Steps Across the Border is an essential resource for one interested in the relationship between music and film. Written for scholars with a background in film music and film narratology, Heldt's study unifies and expands upon current work in the field and is a welcome and necessary addition to the literature."
