Under the particular conditions of the time and place, both art forms underwent significant developments which challenged the status of each form.

In both creative and critical work from this era, poets and composers offered tantalising but problematic insights into musical poetry and poetic music.The central issue examined in this book is that of what happens to poetry when it encounters music, especially as song. The author places Baudelaires famous sonnet La Mort des amants at the heart of the analysis, tracing its transposition into song by a succession of both amateur and professional composers, examining works by Villiers de lIsle-Adam, Serpette, Rollinat, Debussy and Charpentier, as well as an extraordinary parodic song version by Valade and Verlaine.A companion website offers recordings of each of the songs analysed in this book.
