Writer Richard F. Thomas teaches a course on Bob Dylan at Harvard (cool!!!) and holds the stance that Dylan should be in the mix of our classical poets rather than in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame - promoting Dylan’s award of Nobel Prize for Literature. Thomas shows us how in Dylan’s lyrics he hears poetry speaking to him. In our opinion, Thomas is totally on - we’re writing this as listening to Bob Dylan and feeling inspired! Why Bob Dylan Matters is written by Richard F. Thomas, George Martin Lane Professor of the Classics, Harvard University.
