He is a poet of modernity, urbanity and his poetry the poetry of the folk, country, chapel, jazz, rock n' roll and blues and the jargon of these. His poetry the poetry of the guitar and its music; the melody of music. A social activist, a civil rightist, he is a guitarist and his poetry the music of the guitar, vocal melodies cackling and taking us by surprise.
Bob Dylan as a poet is of the pop culture, so modn, colloquial and slangy, full of the nuances and idiosyncrasies of the American language and Americanism singing the songs of the Americas be he from Texas, Massachusetts or California.
Whoever compiled this list had very little knowledge of Dylan.. For example, " Man of Constant Sorrow" and a fw others are NOT Dylan compositions. They are old folk songs he recorded. The only true Dylan masterpiece here is " Desolation Row." The list should also include " Mr. Tambourine Man, " " Dark Eyes, " " Visions of Johanna, " Love Minus Zero, No Limit, " " Gates of Eden, " and several more that Dylan wrote.
