Literature and Music Pairings

So far, I have written about how the 1812 Overture provides a soundtrack for "War and Peace," and how Shostakovich's 7th Symphony does the same for "The Madonnas of Leningrad." As with wine and food, I think that you can create "pairings" that are greater than the sum of the parts, where both the literature and the music are enhanced.

I will create future pairings for future postings(!) Can you think of any?
