How does the written word change when the song is sung? The Evolution of symbolism, hyperbole, and sound

I wrote about the web of narration, echoes of footnotes and the spoken word after reading Manuel Puig’s KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN a few decades back. As I did so, I read Goethe’s stories and heard echoes of the same discussions about narrations. Songs and short stories are mixed throughout Magical Realism and other imagery. When a story or song is narrated the text picks up a life of its own and a power that on paper, it might never had.
