La canzone più celebre di Bob Dylan fu pubblicata nel 1963 sul suo secondo album, "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan". Nel giro di poche settimane divenne popolarissima, grazie anche alle fortunatissime cover di Joan Baez e dal trio folk Peter, Paul & Mary. Si affermò come la canzone simbolo del movimento per i diritti civili, dopo che Dylan la eseguì davanti a Martin Luther King durante un'epocale manifestazione di protesta a Washington. Poi scomparve o quasi dal repertorio live di Dylan negli anni della sua clamorosa svolta elettrica, che suscitò entusiasmi e polemiche oggi difficilmente immaginabili. Riapparve alla ribalta sul palco del concerto per il Bangladesh, nel 1971, dove Dylan tornò a suonare dal vivo dopo il misterioso incidente di moto del 1966 ed eseguì di nuovo il suo "inno", su richiesta di George Harrison. Da allora, Dylan l'ha eseguita centinaia di volte, cambiandone spesso l'arrangiamento; e le versioni di altri artisti si sono moltiplicate, da Stevie Wonder a Neil Young, da Marlene Dietrich a Duke Ellington, facendone una delle canzoni più "reinterpretate" nella storia della musica pop. Al tempo stesso, la fama di "Blowin' In The Wind" si è intrecciata ripetutamente alla storia del XX e del XXI secolo. Basti pensare che ha provocato una disputa politico-teologica fra due Papi e ha incrociato le vittorie di Barack Obama nelle elezioni presidenziali Usa.

Authorship And Cultural Identity In Early Greece And China

In this book, Alexander Beecroft explores how the earliest poetry in Greece (Homeric epic and lyric) and China (the Canon of Songs) evolved from being local, oral, and anonymous to being textualised, interpreted, and circulated over increasingly wider areas. Beecroft re-examines representations of authorship as found in poetic biographies such as Lives of Homer and the Zuozhuan, and in the works of other philosophical and historical authors like Plato, Aristotle, Herodotus, Confucius, and Sima Qian. Many of these anecdotes and narratives have long been rejected as spurious or motivated by naïve biographical criticism. Beecroft argues that these texts effectively negotiated the tensions between local and pan-cultural audiences. The figure of the author thus served as a catalyst to a sense of shared cultural identity in both the Greek and Chinese worlds. It also facilitated the emergence of both cultures as the bases for cosmopolitan world orders.

A spare yet eloquent, bittersweet yet inspiring story of a man and a woman who, in advanced age, come together to wrestle with the events of their lives and their hopes for the imminent future. In the familiar setting of Holt, Colorado, home to all of Kent Haruf’s inimitable fiction, Addie Moore pays an unexpected visit to a neighbor, Louis Waters. Her husband died years ago, as did his wife, and in such a small town they naturally have known of each other for decades; in fact, Addie was quite fond of Louis’s wife. His daughter lives hours away in Colorado Springs, her son even farther away in Grand Junction, and Addie and Louis have long been living alone in houses now empty of family, the nights so terribly lonely, especially with no one to talk with. Their brave adventures—their pleasures and their difficulties—are hugely involving and truly resonant, making Our Souls at Night the perfect final installment to this beloved writer’s enduring contribution to American literature. This eBook edition includes a Reading Group Guide.

In the vein of John Cheever and J. D. Salinger, this powerful collection of short stories chronicles the loss of innocence, the harsh cruelty of social distinctions, and the anguish of young love First Love and Other Sorrows is the hauntingly beautiful debut collection of short stories from American master Harold Brodkey. Written when the author was in his twenties, these strong, affecting tales recall the intoxicating joy of young, springtime love, while lamenting the betrayal of dreams and false ideals in the glaring light of reality. Set in the Midwest during the 1950s, First Love and Other Sorrows centers around a Jewish family that has recently lost its patriarch—and with him the world of privilege. Through the eyes of a son, a sister, and a mother—each one struggling to find a foothold in both family and society—these stories explore class prejudice, obsessive love, and the tragic foibles and emotional truths of being human. First Love and Other Sorrows is masterful fiction from an extraordinary literary artist.
