A very small, thin book but it provides a brilliant insight into where Dylan is coming (or has come) from. It is an excellent lecture and, with the links between his songs and classical literature, shows why Dylan more than deserves the Nobel prize. I particularly like the start of the lecture where Bob acknowledges the great work of Buddy Holly, who he went to see play live a few days before he died. Dylan felt very akin to Holly and travelled 100 miles to see him that day. He was sat just six feet away from Holly at the concert and at one point Holly looked him straight in the eye and something uncanny and mystical was transmitted to Bob from Buddy. Bob says it gave him the chills.
This little book is of historic importance and I highly recommend it.

Gift for Dylan Fanatic2018年6月17日に英国でレビュー済み
Bought this as a gift for my Dylanologist husband. Think he will like it as a smart looking memento of his hero receiving the Nobel Prize for Literature. Think it would appeal to anyone who is a massive fan of the Great Man. (If they call him the Great Man, this is definitely required for their collection!)

Nobelprize. Should be good. I sense some arrogance over the whole subject. This is where the Swedish Academy started to fall to ground. No one really knows how many members are still there, and if they are able to nominate another laureate. Scandals and high society. remain from the 18th century.
