On Thursday folk and rock musician Bob Dylan was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, to the surprise of many and disdain of some. The Miami University libraries have many resources to help you better understand Dylan's cultural contributions and the controversy.
- If you are new to Dylan, you might begin his Greatest Hits Vol. 1-3 (available on CD from Amos Music Library).
- The Amos Music Library staff have put together a Spotify playlist with some great but lesser-known Dylan songs.
- Perhaps you would be interested in Dylan's stream-of-consciousness poetry/prose book Tarantula?
- Or his collected lyrics and drawings, 1962-1985?
- Or in taking an academic deep dive into his lyrics with Aidan Day's Jokerman?
- We also have many biographical and critical texts, such as The Cambridge Companion, Bob Dylan by Griel Marcus, and Bob Dylan and Philosophy. Feel free to browse additional titles!
