    Title: Bob Dylan's Poetics: How the Songs Work
    Author: HAMPTON TIMOTHY

    This is a truly powerful book written by one of the leading scholars of the history of poetry today. The writing is clear and intellectually most exciting: Dylan's idiosyncratic genius is explained more compellingly than ever before. Hampton remains relevant, exciting and persuasively accurate as he shows the genesis of the songs as musical and literary forms and assesses their originality. Bob Dylan's Poetics: How the Songs Work will become a standard account, destined to appear in class lists under “required reading; it contains the searching close readings of songs that will both enable future study and require contestation for an alternative account: the study sets a gold standard.
