Bob Dylan: What the Songs Mean


Add your own review!

Overview

The meaning of Bob Dylan's songs has long been debated by fans, critics and academics. When, in 2016, Dylan was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, the significance of his songs was confirmed. Yet their meaning has never been demonstrably explained. Dylan himself has said that people can learn everything about him through his songs: if they know where to look. This book shows his millions of fans exactly where that is. Dylan has written hundreds of songs, many of which are acknowledged masterpieces. Blowin' in the Wind , Like a Rolling Stone , Mr.Tambourine Man , the list goes on. In the 1960s, he was hailed as a prophet. Since then, he's generally been considered a genius. One thing he's always been, though, is an enigma. In Bob Dylan: What the Songs Mean, critic Michael Karwowski analyses the lyrics. In the process, he opens up all sorts of avenues into philosophy, mysticism, religion, literature, art, and, of course, music. This is a must read book for anyone who wants to learn more about the meaning behind the songs or anyone interested in understanding how a genius sees the world. It also considers the impact Dylan's words have had - not only on his fans, but on the worlds of popular music, culture and beyond.
