Overview


Numerous bootleg copies of this unclassifiable book circulated bohemian music scenes before its release in 1971. Tarántula combines poetry, prose, and exercises in the practice of automatic writing unsurprising given its Beat Generation context. The book shows Bob Dylan moving away from folk and towards rock, growing more transgressive at every step.

This book is bob dylan. Wierd, comical and strange as you read this book you can almost hear mr.dylan singing the words.

This was finally released aroun' 1971 and is a collection of prose poems - items valued often just as much just for sound as for literal meaning. Dylan should still be proud of this up to this very day - it has sight and also insight, visions and images you could feel even tomorry, mate.

This is positively the most ridiculous excuse for a 'book' that I have ever seen. It has no coherence whatsoever, and there is no reason to expect communication can come from this. I would receive more inspiration from meditating all thoughts from my mind than from looking at this trash. I hope this doesn't distract those disaffected from ordering books from you, but I forget, they probably don't have credit cards anyway.

this conjures up so many images you think you must be inside the mind of bob dylan when you read it. this is a good thing, don't worry. this is truly beautiful & perfectly perfect for a dylan lover (like meself) or a poet who likes free verse or a deep thinker or an ex-beat or anyone you think deserves such a masterpiece. my favorites are the last one & the one about the boy in the tree & marxism. I swear, in the last poem, i think he knows me. p.s.: you know, i read this in about two days it was so good, but i still carry it around with me wherever i go, & it inspired me to write poetry which i now do. p.p.s.: in short, it was really really good.
