It is said that music begins where words end. But many writers have tried to merge these two worlds, either by portraying musicians as characters, or by writing about the effects of music on some plot. For music and literature lovers, critic August Nemo has selected seven short stories that blend these elements: - A Wagner Matinee by Willa Cather - The Wind Blows by Katherine Mansfield - A Mother by James Joyce - The Music of Erich Zann by H. P. Lovecraft - The Music on the Hill by H.H. Munro (Saki) - A Lover of Music by Henry van Dyke - The Tragedy of a Comic Song by Leonard Merrick For more books with interesting themes, be sure to check the other books in this collection!
