Literature and Music

This course examines the relationship of the literary and musical arts. Comparative study focuses upon various practices, critical theories, and social, historical, and philosophical concepts that cross artistic boundaries and influence specific works of literature and/or music. Class sessions include lecture, discussion, film and audio presentations, and group activities. Critical thinking is encouraged as students apply concepts to analysis of fiction, poetry, and musical compositions from Western and Non-Western cultures. One analytical research paper and several short class presentations are required. The course is team-taught by faculty from the English and the music disciplines. Credit may be earned for either ENG 3340 or MUSI 3340 but not for both. Successful completion of MUSI 1310 and ENGL 2310 is strongly recommended.
