Dylan’s Together Through Life: Rolling in Places

(p.28) Chapter Two Dylan’s Together Through Life: Rolling in Places
Tearing the World Apart

James Cody

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter examines how Bob Dylan's places confound, and the songs on Together Through Life may be the collection that best exemplifies such assertions. Dylan has mapped out the world for people, and the creation of an interactive map indicating all the places his songs bring them awaits the inspiration of some technologically hip go-getter. The chapter shows how Dylan's places are ephemeral, partly due to being places that “don't make sense no more.” But the place of the song, the landscape of it, or more exact, the soundscape created by lyrics, voice, instruments, and performance are habitable, even if only for the duration of the song, habitable in the sense of where listeners can be carried if they are open to what Dylan demands.

Keywords:   Bob Dylan, Together Through Life, interactive map, places, songs, lyrics, voice, instruments, performances
