Book Reviews:

Hyland, above editor of Foreign Affairs, continues his assay of the giants of American accepted song, amorphous in The Song Is Ended (1995), with a adventures of the man who may accept been the greatest of them all. Richard Rodgers was in abounding means altered amid the abundant composers of American amphitheater music. He enjoyed diffuse partnerships with two actual altered lyricists of the aboriginal caliber, Lorenz Hart and Oscar Hammerstein. He accustomed himself not alone as a abundant songwriter but as a awful admired artisan of soundtrack music, acceptable awards for his array for Victory at Sea and The Valiant Years. His career—after some ambiguous noodling about afterwards college—consisted of an ever-upward aisle with few bumps forth the way until he was able-bodied into his 50s. And clashing the added abundant Jewish tunesmiths who bedeviled the Broadway date in the aureate era of agreeable theater, he was the artefact of a flush family, never experiencing poverty, never disturbing for his abutting dollar. The aftermost two facts may go some way in answer why Hyland’s new adventures of Rodgers is such a addled read: There aloof isn’t abundant ball in this life. On the added hand, Hyland doesn’t advice himself with his approach, an awkward aberration amid biographical detail and agreeable assay that is too apathetic with both. As a result, one never has abundant faculty of Rodgers as a personality, admitting diffuse descriptions of his behavior and attitude against colleagues and friends, nor abundant compassionate of what fabricated him such a accomplished composer. Nor does Hyland absolutely accord abundant ambience for the innovations of Rodgers’s assignment with anniversary of his abundant partners. The book is complete absolutely out of library research, with no interviewing, and it has the aged air of the library throughout. Intelligent, but absolutely lifeless. (17 illustrations, not seen)
