MASSIMO PRIVITERA

Della musica e delle parole

Abstract

This article explores the relations between music and poetry, starting form Rousseau's theory of the origin of languages. Two main distinctions are considered: when poetry is written before music, and when music is written before poetry. "Non più andrai farfallone amoroso" by Daponte and Mozart is examined as an example of the first strategy; "Yesterday" by Paul McCartney as an example of the second one.
