This chapter begins with a discussion of what constitutes the identity of composition. It then examines four ways of construing the issue of unity in the Preludes: the Preludes a monads, the Preludes as nomads, the Preludes as cryptocycle, and the Preludes as an ironic or paradoxical cycle. Metaphor, metonymy, synecdoche, and irony are discussed.

Keywords:   compositional identity, musical research, Derrida, Schenker, Preludes, metaphor, metonymy, synecdoche, irony
