In 2016 Bob Dylan was awarded a Nobel Prize in Literature for "having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition." What is poetry and how do we define it? Is Dylan truly a poet? This interactive and interdisciplinary presentation will compare Dylan's most famous lyrics to works of Charles Baudelaire, Arthur Rimbaud, T.S.Eliot, and Allen Ginsberg in attempt to place him within the poetic canon.
