Subj: [kl] poetry - a two way street?
Date: Wed, 4 Jul 2001 01:54:36 -0400

I happened to sit next to a violin professor from Eastman at a concert
tonight, and the conversation turned to history. He made the statement
that musicians seem to appreciate poetry more than poets appreciate
music. He gave various historical examples of music based on poetry,
and what the poets said when they heard the music that their poetry had

We've discussed the connections between language and music, but it never
occurred to me that some of these connections might be one-way streets.
