Sonic Adventures
with Vijay Seshadri, Sarah Lawrence writing faculty

One of the central tasks of the writer is organizing the sonic properties of what we write. Music is important to the writer of prose and central to the writer of poems. In this talk, we will elucidate sonic principles and ideas by means of both an analysis of texts and a brief historical summary of how we got to where we are now in our understanding of rhythm and melody in writing.
