Writings of Bob Dylan: Seeing From a Different Point of View

Let’s get together and talk about Bob Dylan!  He has not only been performing and writing for over 50 years, but is now a Nobel Prize winner.  He was the Voice of a Generation - but he, and we, keep changing as the decades roll by.  Let’s get to the heart of his writing — his nuanced use of poetic and literary devices, the references to literature and the Bible which are sprinkled throughout his work, his themes and genres and points of view.  Bob Dylan has been telling stories of America, and Americans, for so long now, and we are lucky to have him in our midst. There’s a good reason why Bob Dylan won the Nobel Prize, and we’re going to get to the heart of it in this two-part course with Lisa Kleman that will take place on September 18 & 25.

Lisa Kleman, a former English Adjunct Professor, is now enjoying teaching Creative Writing while she researches, writes, and gives public talks about her relatives — the musical Dossenbachs — who lived in Rochester in the decades just before and after the turn of the 20th century.
