Powell concludes by reiterating the importance of music to Sand, who considered it nothing less than the "central vehicle of communication among humans," however fundamentally unfathomable its language might be (326). Like Sand, he is clearly fascinated by the challenge of describing in words a phenomenon that is patently non-verbal, but nonetheless fully capable of expressing and eliciting ideas and emotions. As Powell (inspired by T.S. Eliot) states so eloquently, "the indescribable effects of music, of listening to music, of making music, can be perceived and grasped only while the music lasts after it fades there is only the memory of music and the hope of experiencing it again" (333). Powell's own study, thoroughly researched and persuasively argued, will surely resonate with those interested in Sand, Romanticism, and musico-literary criticism.
