The nature of music has been defined as the uttering and arousing of emotions by successions and combinations of regulated sound, that of poetry as the representation or arousing of emotions by means of verbal signs arranged with musical regularity. Thus it will be seen that the two arts, having the same purpose, are closely allied, and may be considered interdependent.
