There is so much great material on this site… And I really like the concept of comments by paragraph.
But I wish it had a more inviting look. Does anyone else build a wp theme that does this functionality? I think if it was more fun to look at, you’d build a solid following.
My 2¢ for what its worth.
Thanks for taking the time to enter a comment. I appreciate it. I’m glad you found it interesting. I think you are correct, if the site looked snazzier it would draw more people in. I think I also need to promote it somehow, create a blog etc. I’m thinking about ways to do both of those things. (tweaking the design is tough sledding.) Right now I’m working on another outside project and i haven’t been able to focus on it. But I will. the site is built using the CommentPress theme – http://futureofthebook.org/commentpress/examples/. I’ve seen a few examples that tweak the design a bit to make it look nicer.
Well, then, it seems that Dylan was the only one of his era to have been able to embody fully the musicality that is essential to great poetry, the second voice that haunts every poet, but which he generally delegates to those who recite or read him, the power of song that is his ultimate and secret truth and that some have gone mad – literally and tragically mad – trying to pull from cage into canto.

“She belongs to me”. I have racked my brain trying to understand the meaning of the line “A hypnotist collector”. Is this simply a rhyme for rhyming sake or a is it a hypnotist who collects objects? I realize this question is quite trivial but I’d appreciate any input on this. T.I.A.

Everybody seems to work hard to avoid the explanation of “Double E”. In every analysis of the song I came across the author spends quite a long time guessing what this or that metaphor might really mean but, for reasons unknown to me, goes over the “Double E” as if in fact it wasn’t in the lyrics. Other example of “Double E” in connection with railroads is Warren Zevon’s “Poor Poor Pitiful Me”: I laid my head on the railroad track/waiting for the Double E. Another Double E train is mentioned in “The Liar’s Club: A Memoir” by Mary Karr where one character says that he took a Double E train from Memphis to New Orleans. Furry Lewis’s Jelly Roll you mention seems to me to be another story – the Double E there definitely means something different from Dylan’s (and Zevon’s, for that matter) meaning. But I may be wrong, I am not an American, even not a native English speaker.
The fact that meaning of so frequently used term is not known to everybody in the US puzzles me. Thank you.

I’m sorry but you have got a typo in this paragraph: “Edie was a
wild child with a penchant…”

John the Baptist was just a few months older than Jesus, (they were cousins) therefore there is no way for him to have baptised”baby Jesus”. Instead,he baptised Jesus in the Jordan River and they were both adult men.

Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the images on this blog loading?
I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.
