Now a Major Soundtrack! – Madness, Music, and Ideology in Shutter Island

Abstract [en]

In this article I shall focus on the novel Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane, briefly refer to a graphic novel by De Metter, and Scorseses film by the same name, as well as the compiled musical soundtrack for the film. I will discuss general methodological and theoretical questions raised by these works, but the entire discussion is directed towards Scorseses film (including its soundtrack) as well as the music of film generally: why did Scorsese and his team choose such a relatively special soundtrack for the film; what is the role of music in the general adaptation process of turning a novel into film; and what is the relation between the musical soundtrack and the originating novel? Madness, I will argue, will be part of both the problem and the answer to the methodological and theoretical investigations, and I will argue that we ought to consider music as an important aspect in Scorseses Shutter Island, and that my specific discussion will have repercussions beyond the study of this particular novel and film.
