Lyric Cousins

Poetry and Musical Form

Fiona Sampson

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Sets out a new way to think about both music and poetry
  • Doesn't make its arguments from within or for one particular school of music or poetry but has wide applicability
  • Uses each 'cousin' art-form to cast light on the other as a whole: it is not just for poet-musicians, or musicians writing for voice
  • A rare 'joint' perspective: written by an award-winning poet who was formerly a professional musician
