9781612051871: It Ain't Me Babe: Bob Dylan and the Performance of Authenticity (Great Barrington Books)

Bob Dylan has always been something of a mystery. He has worn a variety of masks that have delighted, puzzled, amused and angered his many audiences. Andrea Cossu offers a strikingly fresh explanation of Dylan and the transformations he has made throughout his career. Cossu's descriptions of key Dylan performances explain how he forged authenticity through performance, and how the various attempts to make 'Bob Dylan' have often involved the interaction between the artist, his public image and his many audiences. It Ain't Me Babe offers a striking vision of how Dylan built his image and learned to live with its burden, painting a unique and coherent new portrait of the artist.

Book Description Paradigm Publishers. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 192 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 0.8in.Since his arrival in New York in 1961, Bob Dylan has always been something of a mystery. He has worn a variety of masks that have delighted, puzzled, amused, and angered his many audiences. He has been poet, rocker, preacher, trickster, and prophet, and he has filled all these personas with songs and different voices. Nonetheless, Dylan has always been perceived as an authentic artist. Andrea Cossu brings the making of Bob Dylan to center stage in this new book, which offers a strikingly fresh explanation of Dylan and the changes he made throughout his career. Cossus enjoyable descriptions of key Dylan performances show us how Dylan created his authenticity through performance, and how the many attempts to make Bob Dylan have often involved the interaction between the artist, his public image, and his many audiences. Touching on four different periods and toursfrom his first days in Greenwich Village to his electric turn at Newport, from the Rolling Thunder Revue and Dylans born-again years to his late careerthe book offers a striking vision of how Dylan built his image and learned to live with its burden, painting a unique and coherent new portrait of the artist.
