The Song is You: Opera, Lyrics, and Literary Studies (UTQ Volume 79, Number 3, 2010)

Guest edited by Andrew DuBois and Katherine R. Larson

The Song Is You: Opera, Lyrics, and Literary Study is devoted to exploring the unique frisson that is generated by the mixture of music and words in opera and popular song. In this collection of essays ranging across centuries, a host of scholars both well-established and up-and-coming considers how matters literary and textual are inextricable from the music we listen to and love. From theoretical approaches to the nature of opera itself, to intense historical explications of work by Britten, Pound, and Wagner, to formal exegeses of lyrics by Lorenz Hart and Cole Porter, to a political reconsideration of Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come," this special issue is an intellectually compelling mix that helps us hear the music anew.
