The arts and literacy, 'amplified right': hearing and reading J. S. Bach

Chapter


Abstract


  • In this chapter the music of J.S. Bach is used to illustrate some aspects of the multifaceted relationship between the study of the arts and literacy education. Bach’s music has been claimed by a variety of secular, patriotic, religious, and musicological discourses, and this chapter examines some of these – their content and the ways in which they can either enrich or contort our understanding and appreciation of the music. The chapter concludes with a suggested model for rethinking the relationship between the arts and literacy and how this relationship may be expanded in educational settings.
