talkThe Philosophy of Modern Song

Carlo Scarpa hall
free admission subject to availability
event in Italian

Starting from Bob Dylan’s eponymous book, an exploration of the sixty essays that the Duluth poet dedicated to some great pop music artists.

Written in Dylan’s inimitable prose and translated by Alessandro Carrera, Professor of Italian Literature at the University of Houston and editor of the artist’s significant publications, these essays are mysterious and unpredictable, intense and profound, and often funny to the point of spontaneous laughter.
