Bells: Sense the Sound
The international symposium on Experimental Narratives organized by the Laboratory of Narrative Research (November 28-29, 2019) was the right occasion for the "Bells" project to arise.
Edgar Allan Poe's poem "The Bells" inspired an audiophonic narrative, produced by students attending "PraTIS311 Literary Translation" and "EnLit497 21st Century British Theatre: Sound and Music." Their translation, narration, sound and voice recording offer us the chance to reflect on the power of language and sounds, as well as explore their beauty and symbiosis.
Visual and auditory images, form and sound patterns, all crucial meaning carriers, invite us to an intriguing investigation and interpretation of the poem through language and music.
If you wish to experience poetry in a different but appealing way, you may read our students' translation and listen to the audiophonic narrative by clicking here.
