I did a quick search on:
themed musical albums based on published literature

Some interesting items came up. Especially this one.
10 Albums Based on Books and Literature

It might be worth checking out these works to see how
they handled the copyright/credit issues.

PS -- With only a year to complete this epic work,
you better make a schedule to stay on track. It seems that
you will need a completed song every two months.

I was so stoked when I started recording that I did my
first 16 song demos in two months. lol

Not that I recommend it.
Seriously. Sixteen songs between Halloween and New Years Day.
So, two months and two days officially. Still...

Thanks for the links Sketch. I think I'm going to go ahead with project. If there is a copyright issue that ensues, I'll deal with it when or if it happens.

I think I'll be ok. As long as I don't pull direct words from the books and put them in my lyrics.
And I'll be sure not to get into quotes from the characters.

For example, Delirium isn't exactly about the character Delirium.
It's more about a disturbed or disconnected state of mind.
That's the way I'll treat each song. Not based on the characters, I'll just explore the meanings of the words.
I already have a plan for destruction and dream.
Should be a lot of fun.

I agree, it will be a lot of work, but I like the fact that I'm setting a goal. And a time based goal at that.

Still can't believe you recorded 16 songs in 2 months.
You're truly an inspiration.

Here is my YouTube and SoundCloud page with some of my original music.
