9780965577588: The Lyrics Of Prince Rogers Nelson/: A Literary Look At A Creative, Musical Poet, Philosopher, And Storyteller

The Lyrics of Prince is an analysis of the lyrical themes, movements, and development of Prince. McInnis seeks to show that Prince is a lyrical talent on par with Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, and Jimi Hendrix. The book shows that Prince is a metaphysical poet attempting to reconcile his individual desires in a strict and confining society. Thus, Prince's work is a barometer for the sensibilities of the eighties as well as provides insight to the post Civil Rights African American who is grappling with place and otherness.

From the Back Cover:

Prince is one of the most creative and influential artists of the twentieth century. He has consistently found a way to push and challenge the standards and ideals of popular music which has had a profound effect on popular culture. Additionally, his career has been the representation of the African American individual of Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man, attempting to reconcile the dual themes of self and group identity. In doing so, Prince has continued the work of Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Jean Toomer, Langston Hughes, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix, James Brown, and George Clinton, fighting to keep the doors of opportunity and diversity open to African American artists. On various levels (race, gender, and religion) Prince’s career has represented the problem of otherness in America. For all of this, his work deserves to be studied and preserved as essential American artistry. With meticulous research, C. Liegh McInnis has put together a work worthy to be considered an excellent and profound academic dissertation.
