Singer, songwriter, memoirist, novelist, poet, painter, sculptor, Nobel Laureate in Literature, 2016: Bob Dylan contains multitudes. This course will cover all aspects of his career, so far. We will read his early attempts at poetry, his political writings and long lyrics of the early and middle 1960s, his post-Modern novel Tarantula (1965/6), interviews, his memoir Chronicles Vol. 1 (2004), and more. We will listen to his songs, and work with both the words and music. We will study his visual art, from early painting to film appearances to recent sculpture. Guest speakers who have worked on, and with, Dylan at various times in his career will join us.
