The Baudelaire Song Project

The Baudelaire Song Project aims to research all the song settings ever of poems by famous French poet Charles Baudelaire, building a pioneering digital dataset which brings together for the first time both pop music and classical music settings of Baudelaire’s verse and prose poetry, totalling 200+ poem texts. I speak with Prof. Helen Abbott and Dr Caroline Ardrey about the project, and what it means for the ways in which we examine literature and music.

The Baudelaire Song Project:

Digital fiction,
