Literature and the Other Arts II

Session Chair: 
Annemarie Perez, Loyola Marymount University
Session 8: Saturday 3:30-5:00pm
RCC Meeting Room 8


  1. Charles Trainor, Siena College
    Fielding was a gifted lyricist whose works reveal a distinct musical aesthetic. He held that music like all art should serve a moral purpose, and stylistically he favored “the purest Simplicity.” Consequently, he opposed the castrati with their vocal acrobatics and indeed was hostile to Italian opera generally since it relegated lyrics to a secondary status. In his view, it was rational words that should dominate and direct the powerful passions raised by music to ethical ends.
  2. Sandra Maresh Doe, Metropolitan State University of Denver
    Prompted by a life crisis, the author decides to research the life of her famous relative, California painter and muralist, Ray Boynton.  In the process of discovering his poetry-inspired painting, she herself becomes a poet.
  3. Daniel Herrera Cepero, California State University, Long Beach
    In this presentation I will analyze Lorca’s New York drawings intended to be included in Poet in New York as a non-paratextual part of his hybrid book. I revive Lorca’s theoretical reflections about what he called “poetic fact” and “linear metaphor” in order to engage in an interartistic comparison of his drawings and poems.
