The Lyrica Society for Word-Music Relations and the Association for the Study of Dada and Surrealism

This session will examine the works of composers who set texts by Gertrude
Stein to music, either as songs, choral works, musicals, operas, or any other
type of composition. These may have been written during Stein's lifetime
with her collaboration, such as her operas with Virgil Thomson, or may have
been set posthumously. Among the topics to be explored are how music affects
the texts' meaning, why composers would choose to set Stein, and Stein's own
thoughts on the combination of words and music.

Baudelaire: Translation, Criticism, Reception

updated: 
Friday, January 21, 2011 - 3:39pm
Research Center "Littérature française XIXe-XXIe siècles" (University of Paris-Sorbonne) and the W. T. Bandy Center for Baudelaire and Modern French Studies (Vanderbilt University)

After 150 years of translation and criticism, Charles Baudelaire's work is no longer simply a classic in French literature but a monument of world literature. We thought it would be interesting to foster a reflection on this international dimension by focusing on translations of Baudelaire's works and criticism in Baudelairean studies.
