MUSIC AND POETRY //

 

This bibliography serves as a guide to selected resources in the UArts Music Library that address the overlapping means by which poems and musical works are made and interpreted. The list suggests only some dimensions of the topic (it does not cover popular song lyrics, for instance), and so does not aim to be comprehensive.
