Has anyone ever created (or found) a course on music as poetry and actually used it as a literature course (I have found music literature college courses that count it as a fine art, which is not what I'm thinking in this case)? I'm imagining a comparison of poetry and song lyrics: ease of interpretation, tone, literary devices used, inflection, tempo, rhythm, etc.
The thought of doing this for my DD just hit me this evening and I think it could be really fun, interesting, inspiring, and educational. I'm sure there are other people much more capable of creating such a class, so I was hoping to find at least a skeleton to follow. Any ideas?
