Abstract or Summary
  • Chazzonos, as presented here for my thesis, represents three chapters of what will be a novel of the same name. Chazzonos is about Hal Perlmutter, a cantor, who at the outset of the novel, is resigning his position of twenty years. The novel progresses as Hal decides where he will go after Mirthgate Temple and what will be meaningful to him. Hal's decision is complicated by the opposing forces that run through him: the conservative side that is attracted to ritual, tradition, and, especially, the music of the ancient and respectable art of the cantor; and the liberal, neo-60s, almost anarchic nature of his personal life. In these three chapters, the dilemmas of Hal's life are introduced. He deals with the implications of an inheritance that has allowed him to resign; he struggles with the mystery of a relationship that is developing between his homosexual son and a new lover; and he is challenged by his long-time girlfriend to make the ultimate commitment of marriage. Throughout the narrative, Hal is affected by his attachment to the music of chazzonos (the cantorial art) and by memories of family and tradition, nostalgic as well as painful. The questions these three chapters introduce and that will develop as the entire novel progresses are those of love, tradition, obligation, and how one struggles with opposing forces in one's nature.
