LALL 953 - Art of Song Lyric

3 credits
A study of how modern song lyrics developed from the ancient tradition of lyric poetry and folk ballads and hymns. Close analysis of notable song lyrics in terms of the theme, settings narrative, character, imagery, drama and emotion. Genres include opera, blues, jazz, cabaret, musical comedy, rock, and hip-hop. Popular and classical songs are examined to show the problems and challenges of putting words to music. Performance and interpretation will also be considered. There is a substantial writing requirement: students may elect to study song lyrics or librettos or to write original song lyrics of their own.
