BOB DYLAN

hacer la caricatura de bob dylan con la guitarra seria demasiado obvio cuando acaba de ganar el nobel de literatura y es el primer musico en recibirlo. aunque desde los 60 le llaman el poeta de la cancion americana, desde los 90 la academia sueca lo tenia en mente hasta que hace unos dias dijo que por la tradicion de habla inglesa de la poesia de los letristas (una retorica, pero bueno…) le daba el premio al cantautor americano. la secretaria sueca de la academia, sara danius, dijo que por 54 años dylan estuvo reiventandose a si mismo. y es verdad. empezo con el rock y termino en el rock pero en el medio anduvo por la cancion protesta, la country, la pop y la psicodelica. pero para mi lo grande de bob no es su letra, ni su rima, ni su musica sino su humanismo, cuando en absolutely sweet mary (absolutamente dulce maria) dice: to live outside the law you must be honest (hay que ser honesto para vivir fuera de la ley). es que cuando los raperos actuales entonan la critica social con desgarradoras frases sobre el entorno en que viven, estan imitando a bob dylan.©varela

signaturemake the bob dylan cartoon with the guitar would be too obvious when he just won the nobel prize in literature, and is the first musician to receive it. although since the 60s is called the poet of the american song, since the 90’s the swedish academy the had him in mind until a few days ago said that by the tradition of english-speaking poetry of the lyricists (a rhetoric, but well…) gave the award to the american singer-songwriter. the swedish secretary of the academy, sara danius, said that for 54 years, dylan was re-inventing by himself. and is truth. started with the rock and finishing in the rock but in the between walked by the protest, the country, the pop and the psychedelic. but for me, the bob’s greatness isn’t his lyrics, neither his rhyme, nor his music but his humanism, when in absolutely sweet mary, says: to live outside the law you must be honest. it’s that when the current rappers sing the social critic with heartbreaking phrases about the environment in which they live, are imitating bob dylan.©varela
