NO ONE TO MEET, by Raphael Falco
"Drawing on numerous examples, including Dylan’s previously unseen manuscript excerpts and archival materials, Raphael Falco illuminates how the ancient process of poetic imitation, handed down from Greco-Roman antiquity, allows us to make sense of Dylan’s musical and lyrical technique. By placing Dylan firmly in the context of an age-old poetic practice, NO ONE TO MEET deepens our appreciation of Dylan’s songs and allows us to celebrate him as what he truly is: a great writer".
