There are 6 comments on One Class, One Day: Deconstructing Bob Dylan

    1. I agree. It’s not simply that Christopher Ricks’s work on Dylan should be recognized because Prof Ricks is a BU faculty member. Standing on its own, shorn of the BU tie, the volume, Dylan’s Visions of Sin (2005), is simply dazzling. I strongly recommend it to everyone who loves Dylan. — WJ Gordon, professor, BU School of Law

      1. Yes, Kevin Barents also teaches a class on Dylan’s Lyrics as Poetry (for the CAS Writing Program) where Visions of Sin is one of the main texts the students read, and they’re lucky to have Christopher Ricks as a special lecturer each semester in that class. The students in this class with Jeremy and Kevin also had the honor of having Christopher Ricks come in and lecture, but this article is One class, One Day, and Christopher was not in this particular class. We’re so lucky at BU to have all of these amazing minds in one institution!

    1. every musician does that, pick any artist and they lift from those that inspired them, Clapton and the Stones “stole” from American blues musicians, so did Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, etc… If it wasn’t for musicians stealing from the blues rock and roll would never have been born, heavy metal would never have evolved from rock, etc…
