Bob Dylan is arguably the most important American literary/music figure during the second half of the 20th Century. The course will cover his impact on folk, rock, blues, gospel, country, and roots music over his long career. While many people have some familiarity with his music during the 1960’s and, through the mid 1970’s, most people have very little understanding of his ongoing significant contributions well into the 2000’s. The course will focus on how he has reinvented himself at every point in his career. The course will trace his career through his music and writings, highlighting his transformations. We will use his 2004 memoir: Chronicles: Volume One, as a text for the course. There will also be recommended readings each week, and we will listen to selected music during each session. Participants need to have access to the Internet.
