Music as poetry

Recommended Posts

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?

I've never seen that, but, after working through MCT's town-level poetry book, my son (who has no sense of rhythm) came home from a church karaoke thing and informed me that there was anapest and dactyl in the songs.
