This completely revised second edition of The Poetic Debussy contains the most recent discoveries in the composer's oeuvre, including a number of hitherto unknown songs. The texts of all Debussy's songs, both in the original French and with revised English translations on the facing page, are collected in chronological order, with notes and location of sources. In addition, Margaret Cobb has brought together a fascinating selection of Debussy's letters which have poetic refences, and has updated the notes on those twenty-six compositions based on or inspired by literary texts. This work will prove an invaluable aid to performers, scholars and students, as it contains the texts, with translations, of the full output of Debussy's songs, describes his works derived from literary sources, and includes important background material.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A highly original anthology of Debussy's own writings through which Margaret Cobb has traced the truly poetic thread in his vocabulary and thought-[she] more than most, has devoted herself to Debussy and has earned her qualifications as an expert. --Francois Lesure, Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris

A valuable contribution to Debussy studies. Anyone seriously studying the songs of Debussy will have to deal with this valuable book. --James Hepokoski, Oberlin College Observatory
