Read full description of the books:
Seldom is it noted that springing hope can prove a real pain in the ass. I continually harbor and hope. There are always lists and plans: prerequisites for other texts clamor for attention. This vein continues however vain. I am thinking of reading all women in April, this highlighted by reading Second Sex in Serbia. There is module on slavery I was imagining for May. We shall see. Wait, I haven't really broached The Weird Old America, have I? Well that treatment is tantamount to Marcus' fleeting placement of The Basement Tapes within the text: they remain central, yet absent. It is fitting that Marcus cited Camille Paglia as that appears to be his lodestar, though he lacks her scrutiny as well as her writing panache. Marcus establishes The Basement Tapes as a nexus for myriad paths of American expression and legacy. Tracing these routes is intriguing but hardly conclusive. I think I prefer Nick Tosches in such free association . When considering this challenge for 2016 it was obvious that reading five books by or about Bob Dylan would be much more problematic than achieving the same with Derrida and Dickens. Marcus gives us hagiography, Dylan the mystic awakened something eternal when he went electric. One almost imagined William James, perhaps Robert Graves on Sufism . One can glean of course that the Nirvana song Polly harkens to a ballad Pretty Polly from the 17C. Again Marcus entertains without marshaling the requisite evidence.
