9780060599249: Dylan's Visions of Sin

Structured around the concepts of sin, virtue and grace, Ricks's close reading and imaginative cross-referencing will indeed uncover meanings in Dylan's songs that would never have occurred to you' Anthony Quinn, Daily Telegraph ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 'Everything Ricks has to say about Dylan is original. Ricks is a critic who seems to be talking to you from within the work. He can turn the smallest niche in a poem or song into a vast cathedral of resonance and implication' Brian Appleyard, Sunday Times --------------------------------------------------------------- 'Ricks on Dylan is the best there is' New Yorker

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 205 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Bob Dylan s ways with words are a wonder, matched as they are with his music and verified by those voices of his. In response to the whole range of Dylan early and late (his songs of social conscience, of earthly love, of divine love, and of contemplation), this critical appreciation listens to Dylan s attentive genius, alive in the very words and their rewards. Fools they made a mock of sin. Dylan s is an art in which sins are laid bare (and resisted), virtues are valued (and manifested), and the graces brought home. The seven deadly sins, the four cardinal virtues (harder to remember?), and the three heavenly graces: these make up everybody s world -- but Dylan s in particular. Or rather, his worlds, since human dealings of every kind are his for the artistic seizing. Pride is anatomized in Like a Rolling Stone, Envy in Positively 4th Street, Anger in Only a Pawn in Their Game . But, hearteningly, Justice reclaims Hattie Carroll, Fortitude Blowin in the Wind, Faith Precious Angel, Hope Forever Young, and Charity Watered-Down Love. In The New Yorker, Alex Ross wrote that Ricks s writing on Dylan is the best there is. Unlike most rock critics -- forty-year-olds talking to ten-year-olds, Dylan has called them -- he writes for adults. In the Times (London), Bryan Appleyard maintained that Ricks, one of the most distinguished literary critics of our time, is almost the only writer to have applied serious literary intelligence to Dylan . Dylan s countless listeners (and even the artist himself, who knows?) may agree with W.H. Auden that Ricks is exactly the kind of critic every poet dreams of finding.
