In Desolation Row, Bob Dylan takes a collection of classic themes and weaves a rich fabric that expresses the reality of 1960’s America. Dylan is not only a deep thinker, but also a broad thinker who articulates and condenses his ideas into elegant verse. He has been described as one of the most significant poets of the Twentieth Century, this epic poem is arguably his finest work.
