A wise person once said, “Music is the language of the soul.” Music has a way of touching our emotions in a way other language does not. Whenever Kino hears a song in The Pearl, the reader becomes aware of his inner world – his feelings and emotions.
This product is intended to be used as a final project for John Steinbeck's, "The Pearl". Students will choose music with lyrics to portray one of the songs in the novella (Song of the Pearl, Song of Evil, etc.). Students will then find literary devices used in the song and write a analysis essay explaining how their chosen music relates to the song from the book.
