DREAMS AND DIALOGUES
IN DYLAN'S TIME OUT OF MIND
TIME OUT OF MIND is one of the most ambitious, complex, and provocative albums of Bob Dylan's artistic career. This album marks the culmination of several recurring themes that have preoccupied Dylan for decades, and it serves as a pivotal turning point toward his late renaissance in terms of both subject matter and intertextual approach.
Despite winning a number of accolades, TIME OUT OF MIND has been largely misunderstood and underestimated. This book seeks to remedy that by excavating three distinct levels of meaning at work in the songs recorded for the album. .
