UO Prof Studies The Music Of Poetry (And Vice Versa)


It's often said of poetry that there's a kind of music to it.  You'll get no disagreement there from Stephen Rodgers

He's a professor of music theory and musicianship at the University of Oregon, and his research focuses on the relationship between poetry and music.  19th century composers get Rodgers's greatest scrutiny. 

This month's edition of Curious: Research Meets Radio features a visit with the professor.  He'll walk us into his studies and what he's learned.
