- Motet Music - 1,791 words
Motet Music The genesis of the motet is, like the biblical birth of Eve, a matter of appendage. In the case of Eve, a rib was removed from Adam and fashioned into a women; the motet was a rib added to pre-existing clausulae. James C. Thomson describes this development as follows: In the thirteenth century, perhaps sooner, it became the practice to add a new text to the upper voice of a clausula. The newly worded, was then called motetus. (Thomson, 56) Despite its somewhat haphazard birth, the form was widely accepted. Grout describes its popularity as: Thousands of motets were written in the thirteenth century; the style spread from Paris throughout France and to all parts of western Europe. ...

- Yukio Mishima - 742 words
Yukio Mishima I read a novella with a collection of three stories by Yukio Mishima. The first story was called "The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With The Sea," the second was called "The Temple of the Golden Pavilion", and the third was "Confessions of a Mask." I would enjoy talking about each of these books individually, however I have far too little room for discussions of a such a great feat of writing.
