All directions at once

This series looks at Dylan’s work from the point of view of the ebb and flow of his writing – rather like a wave form.  Sometimes Bob is on a high in terms of his artistic endeavour, sometimes he finds it hard to write anything at all.

Thus rather than examine a song and relate it to where the ideas came from in terms of literature and music, the series sees Dylan’s changing themes and styles within the music as a clue to what is happening in his life.
