About this book

Polyvocal Bob Dylan brings together an interdisciplinary range of scholarly voices to explore the cultural and aesthetic impact of Dylan’s musical and literary production. Significantly distinct in approach, each chapter draws attention to the function and implications of certain aspects of Dylan's work—his tendency to confuse, question, and subvert literary, musical, and performative traditions. Polyvocal Bob Dylan places Dylan’s textual and performative art within and against a larger context of cultural and literary studies. In doing so, it invites readers to reassess how Dylan’s Nobel Prize–winning work fits into and challenges traditional conceptions of literature.

Reviews

“The ongoing releases of the official bootlegs and now the opening of the Bob Dylan Archive suggest that we might just be at the start of a new era in writing and teaching about the singer-songwriter and his legacy. This volume will play a role in that unfolding conversation and… its essays will even help set the agenda.” (Sean Latham, Professor of English, University of Tulsa, USA)
