    Si te gust la secci n de notas de memorabilia al final del recopilatorio de letras de Dylan este libro es perfecto No es otra cosa m s que una revisi n canci n por canci n de todo lo que grab Bob entre 1964 y 1969 La mayor a de los datos son de dominio com n, pero funciona para algunas canciones no tan populares Las fotograf as por otro lado son realmente buenas y algunas son poco recurrentes.

    Usually about this time of the year I begin reading the new Nobel Prize winner in Literature This year s winner, of course, is Bob Dylan, and his works are basically song lyrics I think he did write one book, called Tarantula, but I ve never run across it and it obviously wasn t the basis for the award This is fine with me songs are the original poetry, and nearly all poetry before the last four hundred years was intended to be sung and Dylan s lyrics are certainly among the most influent Usually about this time of the year I begin reading the new Nobel Prize winner in Literature This year s winner, of course, is Bob Dylan, and his works are basically song lyrics I think he did write one book, called Tarantula, but I ve never run across it and it obviously wasn t the basis for the award This is fine with me songs are the original poetry, and nearly all poetry before the last four hundred years was intended to be sung and Dylan s lyrics are certainly among the most influential poetry of the late twentieth century The library ordered the big book of all his lyrics, which I have on hold, but it can t be released until November 1, so in the meantime I read this little book It s pretty lightweight, no in depth analysis or original research, just the biographical and factual background behind the songs, ranging from a couple paragraphs to a couple pages for each I probably have had the words to most of these early songs memorized since I was a teenager my sister can testify that whenever she turns on her karaoke machine, I download Dylan But I m not a fan type person, and I knew little about him as a person, so some of this was interesting to me less so trying to guess which girlfriend was the basis for which breakup song, many of which were probably addressed as much to his fans as to actual women One thing that came across very clearly was that he was a poet and songwriter, and not, like his model Woody Guthrie, also a political activist I don t doubt that he had strong and sincere convictions on racism and war which he expressed in his earlier work, despite his later cynical statements, but he resented the attempt to pigeon hole him as a folksinger or a protest singer or involve him in supporting particular groups It s a tragedy that some people tried to make him into something he wasn t and in the process turned him off from that type of content, which I would like to have hadof I wonder whether his delay in accepting the Nobel, which is already being commented on, isn t based on a similar worry about being defined by others, in this case as literature Or perhaps he still remembers the Tom Paine award banquet mentioned in the book as an example of his reaction to being turned into a political spokesman which he never intended to be
