"Quite unlike both Cohen and Mitchell, Dylan radiates outward in his work, and his interest lies in absorbing into his singing persona all of the material of the culture around him."

From Instagram:
"We shouldn't enclose life in a single moment when individual life confronts universal death. A life is everywhere, in all the moments that a given subject goes through...in the absolute of the immediate consciousness." PURE IMMANENCE by Gilles Deleuze #SummerReads #FromTheArchives #ZoneClassics #Philosophy #Empiricism #Nietzche #Hume #Bergson #Essay #Transcendentalism #Consciousness
From Instagram:
"A haunting sketch made aboard Pet's ship in the Asian Arctic shows clusters of small islands fronting blocked-in ships beset by 'infinite yse'...to perish in such terrain was not always to vanish, but to accrete, to become one with terrain."

"Dylan's constant reflection on the 'old' and the 'new,' on what the poet Rimbaud called 'absolutely modern,' will help us to locate the songs in a history of forms....his work may be less that of rock music, or 'the Sixties,' than of artistic modernism."

"When I am talking about being, I mean being as an act....not the act that actualizes a potentiality, but the actualization of this act, which always bears within it the mark of the divine imperative."

"For a few visitors to the actual Arctic, a common point of comparison was the desert. It was a terrain 'vast and void,' as one explorer wrote, fraught with biblical overtones of barrenness, confusion, and itineracy."

"Hampton can walk you through ‘Visions of Johanna’ or ‘Summer Days’ the way the art historian T. J. Clark can walk you through Manet’s Olympia." @GreilMarcusNET selects BOB DYLAN'S POETICS by Timothy Hampton as a "Real Life Rock Top 10" pick in @RollingStone bit.ly/2XdhjPD #BobDylan #Folk #Rock #Poetics #LiteraryTheory #MusicalForm #Song #Lyric #RollingStone #AmericanIcon

"Queer politics continues regularly to invoke norms of liberal modernity...it continues to invoke a civil-society against the state; it continues to value sexuality by linking it to the expressive capacities of individuals."

From Instagram:
"The globe aligns such entrepreneurship with a multisurfaced celebration of new technology – and with painting's ability to frame such innovation as possession...These things are all not just precious – they are new." —INTO THE WHITE https://bit.ly/2PPLNnb #Arctic #FarNorth #Renaissance #Image #Discovery #Exploration #TerraIncognita #Landscape #Environment #ArtHistory
From Instagram:
"This is an important book for the history of animals in early modern Europe. In the wake of the ongoing animal turn in the social sciences, historians have become increasingly concerned with the question of how to integrate animals into broader narratives of historical change." 1668: THE YEAR OF THE ANIMAL IN FRANCE reviewed in Isis: A Journal of the History of Science Society. https://bit.ly/2XAV0YC #Animals #1668 #History #Politics #FrenchHistory #Descartes #EarlyModernEurope #LouisXIV #RoyalMenagerie #Renaissance #Versailles

"What sets Dylan apart is that his work registers the impact of social and political change, not only on selves and communities but also on art itself, as the medium of communication."

From Instagram:
"Early modern travel writing assumed different standards of believability...Artists' encounters with the printed & illustrated reports on new lands often clashed with home-grown notions of picture making as a self-consciously artificial act."

"America is seen, not as a problem of false consciousness or misplaced priorities, but as a breakdown of knowledge, of language, of the self, which cannot grasp or understand its own alienation."

"A world away from courts, cities, and riches...the idea of the Arctic as a featureless, immeasurable expanse, an abstraction that is all but invisible, spoke to the language of both colonization and corporate resource exploitation." —INTO THE WHITE https://bit.ly/2PPLNnb #FarNorth #Arctic #Exploration #Discovery #ArtHistory #Image #Landscape #Renaissance #TerraIncognita #Environment
From Instagram:
"Lyric is about fragmentation, momentary flashes of insight...We could think of Dylan's work in this regard as a kind of 'galaxy' or 'constellation' of moments in which the combination of lyric, melody, & rhythm generates a force field."
