REVOLUTION IN THE AIR ~







CHICAGO   REVIEW   PRESS   2009




I was carrying this book around all Spring
in a book sack when we were off traveling somewhere —
rumpled up cloth copy sitting with me by a river, in the woods,
on a lawn, by a brook, in the passenger seat reading —
some hate the book, think the long-Dylan savant 
is pompous — ah, so what: it's a romp going through
these 300 songs, historically and the astonishing
line of subjects. "Blowin' in the Wind"
was not Dylan's first song — that was saved
for Brigitte Bardot
"Song to Brigit"
(1956)
Dylan was 15 years old.
