    1. Twenty essays explore Dylan's intersection with American culture. Comments that stuck with me:— Bob Dylan, in the early sixties, saw the end of the traditional msic people who recorded in the twenties and thirties. Delta and Appalachian musicians fixtures in clubs, colleges and festivals. "Those old songs are my lexicon," he said. — "The first thing that turned me onto folk singing was Odetta," said Dylan. Until recently, I was a casual fan of Dylan, knowing his famous songs, his trajectory [...]


    2. A collection of essays by various hands, and as you would expect the essays are uneven. The most interesting material deals with Dylan's complex relationship with race in America. Also of interest is the examination of Dylan's 'voices'. One essay especially delves into this aspect of Dylan's performance in an overly complicated, but not uninteresting, way. All in all, a worthwhile collection. I read all the essays, only one of which I did not finish. Did I come away knowing more about Dylan than [...]


    3. Nice collection of readable academic essays. Good stuff on Dylan's Northern Minnesota background and the "Love and Theft" and Modern Times albums. Also lots of quotes from Chronicles Vol. 1, which I haven't read yet.


    4. Papers from a symposium on Dylan held at the Weisman Art Museum of the University of Minnesota in 2007. Found it today for 70% off in the Weisman's own gift shop!
