Dylan, Virgil, Ovid et al

Thanks to Anne Ritchie:

“I’ve been following your unique recent coverage of new Dylan Studies books - I’m particularly interested in Dylan’s debt to Classical writers, especially Ovid.

“I can recommend to readers of The Dylan Daily with similar interests a series of articles available free on the web site of an academic journal, Oral Tradition.

“Oral Tradition Volume 22 no 1 2007 was a special Dylan issue. Among a lot of very meaty articles, there’s one by Harvard Prof Richard F Thomas, The Streets Of Rome – The Classical Dylan (pp30-56), examining Dylan’s references to Ovid, Virgil, Homer et al in depth.”
