Abstract

2017/02/07. Classical literature has inspired popular music of the last six decades in often surprising ways. Four ancient genres—epic, tragedy, philosophy, and historical writing—seem to have the most influence on Anglophone popular music from Bob Dylan to Sarah Dougher. Some examples are brief allusions or metaphors, but others rework ancient narratives or even offer creative translations set to music.
