This chapter explores the historical sources of dramatic symbolism and its philosophical and psychological foundations, based on new tendencies in literature, psychology, and music. It discusses psychiatric reconceptualization of trauma in the late 19th century, its relevance to symbolic meaning of the new musical language, and the language of trauma. The chapter also addresses cross-sensory analogies, metaphors, and synesthesia, all of which contribute to symbolist opera as a modern phenomenon.

Keywords:   historical sources, new musical language, cross-sensory analogies, metaphors, synesthesia, trauma, psychiatric reconceptualization
