Summary
While comparative literature is a well-recognized field of study, the notion of comparative arts remains unfamiliar to many. This book addresses the fundamental question of comparative arts: are there many different arts, or is there one art which takes different forms? This book considers various artistic media, especially literature, music and painting, to discover which aspects of each medium are unique and which can be translated from one to another. Can a poem turn into a symphony, or a symphony into a painting? This book explores how different media interact, as in a drama, when speech, stage decor, and music are co-present, or in a musical composition that employs the collage method of the visual arts. Tracing arguments and questions about the relations among the arts from Aristotle's Poetics to the present day, this book illuminates the under-studied discipline of comparative arts and urges new attention to its riches
