Título Intermediality of Music and Literature. Echoes of Interwar British Music in Works of J.B. Priestley
Autor(es) Rebollo Calvo, María Isabel
Abstract J.B. Priestley was a prolific writer over a long life as well as a multi-faceted personality. In recent years, studies have focused on his time plays, his views on politics, Englishness and on national identity, but seldom on Priestley’s close connections with and involvement in the world of music, which intersected with his literary writing on so many occasions. The aim of this essay is to offer an analysis of Priestley’s employment of music as a literary device enhancing both his works’ entertainment value and the social messages carried by his plays and novels produced during the interwar and post-Second World War years. A special focus is applied to two pivotal works in this respect: the novel The Good Companions (1929) and the play Music at Night (1938). Furthermore, since recent decades have seen the appearance of studies in intermediality of music and literature, this dissertation will explore the theories of Wolf and Scher, and how they may apply to Priestley’s works. The whole is set within the cultural scene of 1918 to 1939 and into the Second World War, in particular the genres of popular music and other forms of popular entertainment, and classical music.
