Structuralist Analysis of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody"

Queen’s "Bohemian Rhapsody" is full of colorful language and symbols, so it would be interesting to have a critical analysis of the song’s many themes and symbols using a structural approach.

  • This is an interesting idea but I think it is too broad. What kind of specific questions would you raise about the song, other than what themes and symbols it has? Also, I think you mean "structuralist" analysis, not "structuralistic" (if you're referring to the literary theory of structuralism). – Christina 8 years ago
  • Indeed, that was a typo and has been corrected. The idea of the article would be to analyze the lyrics without leaning toward any other theory, such as psychoanalysis or lesbian/gay criticism. While those ideas may be found within (indeed, they have been used before), I would like the meaning of the lyrics to be tested without the bias of other literary theories. – scmblack 8 years ago
