Abstract

The study discusses, through analysing György Kurtág's setting of Paul Celan's poem, extreme notions of the lyrical, especially in terms of the rendering of non-sense, noise and silence, as one of the characteristic preoccupations for post second World War continental artistic enquiry. Raises the issue of fomlesness and speechlessness, seen to determine the very structure of the works in question, as the sign for language - both poetic or musical - to be overwhelmed by the historical events associated with the Holocaust.
