They Actually Read Literature!

In this 4th semester, I am taking Survey on the Contemporary English Literature. It is interesting, really really interesting and fit with my mind. The lecturer always makes me want to read a lot. Read this novel, analysis that poem and told me many things that made my eyes open wide.

The awesome fact that she told that the musician also read literary works and made some 'intertextual' to their songs. So far, I found these three works and the song adaptation. Check is out!

1. Literary work: A Rose For Emily - William Faulkner




The story is about the day Miss Emily dead and the townspeople went to her funeral. Miss Emily was such an outsider and mysterious woman. That personality made people curious about her and what in her house. They finally found something suprising thing which is related to Miss Emily's past. Read the whole story here.

Song: My Chemical Romance - To The End


2. Literary work: Breakfast at Tiffany's - Truman Capote



The novella tells the story of friendship between Holly Golightly, and an unnamed narrator. The two are both tenants in a brownstone apartment in Manhattan's Upper East Side. Holly Golightly (age 18-19) is a country girl turned New York café society girl, who makes her living as a companion to society's most prominent men. The narrator is an aspiring writer. Holly, who likes to stun people with carefully selected tidbits from her personal life or her outspoken viewpoints on various topics, slowly reveals herself to the narrator who finds himself fascinated by her curious lifestyle. In the end Holly fears that she will never know what is really hers until after she has thrown it away. Read the more info here.

3. Literary work: Look Back in Anger - John Osborne





It is a play about a love triangle involving an intelligent but disaffected young man (Jimmy Porter), his upper-middle-class, impassive wife (Alison), and her haughty best friend (Helena Charles). Cliff, an amiable Welsh lodger, attempts to keep the peace. Read the more info here.

Song: Oasis - Don't Look Back in Anger


So I realized that a musician is not only someone that write, sing or performe their art, they are actually smart :D
