Writers of the modern and postmodern period experimented with new modes of narration and form, often borrowing from musical structures to inform their work. Two such authors are James Joyce and Samuel Beckett, who, in their works, mirror musical innovations made by Arnold Schoenberg and John Cage, respectively. Joyce and Beckett use the formal techniques of music in their literary works to arrive at an improved mode of communication.
