CORE 002 SC - The Language of Music
This course questions our tendency to consider music and literature as distinct art forms by exploring how they have historically been intertwined. We will read drama and fiction that includes musical performances alongside poems titled as "songs," asking how references to music within literary texts influence our understanding of these works. In studying texts that have migrated from the page to the stage and screen, we will analyze the transformative effects of musical setting and adaptation. We will consider music as a tool of social formation, commentary, and protest, while also thinking critically about our own linguistic habits in talking about literature and music.
