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.

Paradine Island is a story about James Morgan, a Kansas-bred entrepreneur, and the people who follow in his footsteps. The death of his mother brings him close to his daughter, Lammy. She spends her summer holiday sailing in the Caribbean with him on his ketch, the C. M. Paradine. They meet Ricardo, an Argentine graduate of Iowa State. Ricardo and James put Lammy on a plane to resume her pre-medical courses at the University of Kansas, and together they sail to the Canary Islands. James takes pity on a teenage dance hall orphan and spirits her away from her intended sponsors. Martina learns English and many of James American ideals as they cross the Atlantic back to his home on Paradine Island. He finds her to be intelligent and falls in love with her. His business prospers. They have two boys. On a sailing holiday they are attacked by pirates. James is killed. Tina escapes with her boys and carries on the business. With the assistance of Lammy, two clever biochemists, a British attorney, and Andrew, a quarter-breed Arapaho cowboy, the company becomes an international giant with headquarters in St.Louis. Andrew, Tina's second husband, and two of their little girls are killed in the bombing of the company's properties by Mid-eastern terrorists who are encouraged by liberal political organizations. After reestablishing the company headquarters in England, Tina takes her two boys on a fishing trip into the Scottish highlands. They meet a recluse Scottish earl. The boys initiate a romance between the earl and their mother. Marrying the earl, Tina takes him for a honeymoon sail on the C.M.Paradine. They and others have a myriad of experiences in the Caribbean chasing a thief who intended to sell to terrorists the company's irreplaceable supply of a lethal material he had stolen.

The Poetics of American Song Lyrics is the first collection of academic essays that regards songs as literature and that identifies intersections between the literary histories of poems and songs. The essays by well-known poets and scholars including Pulitzer Prize winner Claudia Emerson, Peter Guralnick, Adam Bradley, David Kirby, Kevin Young, and many others, locate points of synthesis and separation so as to better understand both genres and their crafts. The essayists share a desire to write on lyrics in a way that moves beyond sociological, historical, and autobiographical approaches and explicates songs in relation to poetics. Unique to this volume, the essays focus not on a single genre but on folk, rap, hip hop, country, rock, indie, soul, and blues. The first section of the book provides a variety of perspectives on the poetic history and techniques within songs and poems, and the second section focuses on a few prominent American songwriters such as Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, and Michael Stipe. Through conversational yet in-depth analyses of songs, the essays discuss sonnet forms, dramatic monologues, Modernism, ballads, blues poems, confessionalism, Language poetry, Keatsian odes, unreliable narrators, personas, poetic sequences, rhythm, rhyme, transcription methods, the writing process, and more. While the strategies of explication differ from essay to essay, the nexus of each piece is an unveiling of the poetic history and poetic techniques within songs. Charlotte Pence of Knoxville, Tennessee, is the author of The Writer's Path: Creative Exercises for Meaningful Essays. She is also the winner of the Black River Chapbook Competition for her poetry chapbook The Branches, the Axe, the Missing.

WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE IN LITERATURE Music legend Bob Dylan's only work of fiction—a combination of stream of consciousness prose, lyrics, and poetry that gives fans insight into one of the most influential singer-songwriters of our time. Written in 1966, Tarantula is a collection of poems and prose that evokes the turbulence of the times in which it was written, and gives a unique insight into Dylan's creative evolution. It captures Bob Dylan's preoccupations at a crucial juncture in his artistic development, showcasing the imagination of a folk poet laureate who was able to combine the humanity and compassion of his country roots with the playful surrealism of modern art. Angry, funny, and strange, the poems and prose in this collection reflect the concerns found in Dylan's most seminal music: a sense of protest, a verbal playfulness and spontaneity, and a belief in the artistic legitimacy of chronicling everyday life and eccentricity on the street.
