The proposed panel will analyze the relationship of music and music performance and the text within various national literatures, from 19th century to present day, by offering an overview of the different methodological approaches to this topic and investigating the role of music in literature.

Bertolt Brecht was confronted with the alien throughout his life. He was exposed to it everywhere he lived, and in all venues he inhabited, he was as a stranger among strangers. Furthermore, he made the experience of the alien into the linchpin of his entire artistic project.
