Fences : A Technical And Analytical Perspective On Blues
The author seek with this paper to bring clarity in Troy Maxson’s favorite song throughout the whole play. What at a first glance would seem perhaps easy, proofs in fact to embody a wide connotative meaning. The complexity of the Old Blue song will be brutally decomposed into pieces and analyzed as an allegory, as a piece of music and as a comparison to Willie Nelson Ol’ Blues song “Hear it ring!”
Keywords: Blues, frame story, improvisation, deconstruction, harmony, rhythm
