How do literature and music interrelate, and how can they enliven each other? Join us for the Words and Sounds series led by Ulkar Aghayeva, Daniel Hass, Lily Rock, Jameel Martin, and Ryan Tuozzolo we will discuss intersections between the two and how they can inspire each other.
We will continue discussing the convergence points in the creative process of both musical composition and fiction/poetry writing, drawing parallels between compositional forms in music and literature as well as works of literature influenced by music and vice versa.
How does Paul Celan’s “Death Fugue” draw on the musical structure of a fugue? How does the poetry of García Lorca, even as he leans into quasi-surrealist abstraction, work with the folk tradition of cante jondo? Discussion topics could include the foundations of poetry in song, William Blake’s musical and literary talent, and the role of counterpoint in Hemigway’s writing. There will be lots to discuss!
