This book has an indirect Dylan connection; this is the book-length essay on the nature of poetic myth-making that Bob Dylan mentions in CHRONICLES - VOLUME ONE: 'I read The White Goddess by Robert Graves, too. Invoking the poetic muse was something I didn't know about yet. Didn't know enough to start trouble with it, anyway. In a few years' time I would meet Robert Graves himself in London. We went out for a brisk walk around Paddington Square. I wanted to ask him about some of the things in his book, but I couldn't remember much about it'.
   Thank you to François Guillez for pointing this Dylan related book.

By Robert Graves, Faber & Faber (UK) Creative Age Press (US), first published in 1948.
