This book explores the relationship between word and music as well as changes in that relationship in the course of the twentieth century. It considers three ways in which words can be treated musically: mimesis, gesture and parody. It also discusses the word-music connection in the context of rhetoric and cultural studies. In addition, the book examines the continuing influence of Lawrence Kramer and Mikhail Bakhtin, as well as aspects of translation and the viewpoint of the lyricist.

Keywords:   Lawrence Kramer, words, music, Mikhail Bakhtin, mimesis, gesture, parody, rhetoric, cultural studies, translation
