A major publishing event—a beautiful, comprehensive collection of the lyrics of Bob Dylan with artwork from thirty-three albums, edited and with an introduction by Christopher Ricks. As it was well put by Al Kooper (the man behind the organ on “Like a Rolling Stone”), “Bob is the equivalent of William Shakespeare. What Shakespeare did in his time, Bob does in his time.” Christopher Ricks, editor of T.S. Eliot, Samuel Beckett, Tennyson, and The Oxford Book of English Verse, has no argument with Mr. Kooper’s assessment, and Dylan is attended to accordingly in this authoritative edition of his lyrics. In the words of Ricks: “For fifty years, all the world has delighted in Bob Dylan’s books of words and more than words: provocative, mysterious, touching, baffling, not-to-be-pinned-down, intriguing, and a reminder that genius is free to do as it chooses. And, again and again, these are not the words that he sings on the initially released albums.” This edition changes things, giving us the words from officially released studio and live recordings, as well as selected variant lyrics and revisions to these, recent revisions and retrospective ones; and, from the archives, words that, till now, have not been published. The Lyrics, edited with diligence by Christopher Ricks, Lisa Nemrow, and Julie Nemrow. As set down, as sung, and as sung again.

Am 13. Oktober 2016 hat Bob Dylan, der im Mai 2016 75 Jahre alt wurde, als erster Musiker den Literaturnobelpreis zugesprochen bekommen und damit seine einzigartige Karriere um eine weitere Besonderheit ergänzt. Leonard Cohen nannte ihn "the Picasso of Song": Kein anderer Künstler hat die Entwicklung der Rockmusik und der Song-Poesie über die letzten fünf Jahrzehnte so nachhaltig, so ausdauernd und so einfallsreich bestimmt wie er. Heinrich Detering zeichnet das Werk des ›Song and Dance Man‹, der sich immer wieder neu erfunden hat, kenntnisreich und lebendig nach - von den Anfängen des Folksingers über die Elektrifizierung des Rock und die Wiederentdeckung amerikanischer Traditionen bis hin zu den noch einmal ganz neue Wege erschließenden Alben des 21. Jahrhunderts.Eine Literaturliste und eine Diskographie vervollständigen das Standardwerk. Aktualisierte Auflage Okober 2016.

Zen Questions

Zazen, Dogen, and the Spirit of Creative Inquiry

Whether speaking of student or master, Zen hinges on the question. Zen practice does not necessarily focus on the answers, but on finding a space in which we may sustain uncertainty and remain present and upright in the middle of investigations. Zen Questions begins by exploring "The World of Zazen,"--the foundational practice of the Zen school--presenting it as an attitude of sustained inquiry that offers us an entryway into true repose and joy. From there, Leighton draws deeply on his own experience as a Zen scholar and teacher to invite us into the creativity of Zen awareness and practice. He explores the poetic mind of Dogen with the poetry of Rumi, Mary Oliver, Gary Snyder, and even "the American Dharma Bard" Bob Dylan. What's more, Leighton uncovers surprising resonances between the writings of America's Founding Fathers--including Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin--and the liberating ideals at the heart of Zen.
