A Review of Bob Dylan’s Poetics

In a new review in Chicago Life, Ned Haggard discusses Bob Dylan’s Poetics: How the Songs Work by Timothy Hampton. Click here to learn more about the book. Click on the button to the left to read the full review. An excerpt appears below:

“While Hampton’s thesis focuses on how Bob Dylan has integrated his accomplished abilities in music, lyric and observation, his book transcends his subject. Hampton uses Dylan’s brilliant, creative ability to both articulate and imply larger reaches of possibility, sometimes via the examples of other creative influences that have enabled Dylan to talk more broadly than just the focus of Hampton’s thesis….A remarkable book, and more than worthwhile to those interested in song, lyricism, literature and creative invention (not a redundant linkage of words).”
