The proposed panel will analyze the relationship of music and music performance and the text within various national literatures, from 19th century to present day, by offering an overview of the different methodological approaches to this topic and investigating the role of music in literature. We invite a broad range of papers devoted to the analysis of the complex interplay of the two art forms, aesthetic and cultural interactions between music and literature, audience and performers, the nature of creativity, the image of the artist, and the role of music in the specific texts, as well as the broader topics of integrating a musical performance within the narrative form. Please submit your abstract through NeMLA portal:
