Ghost in the Machine shares a few thoughts (and paragraphs) on Bob Dylan's autobiography:
"For the historians and Dylanologists out there (or for those wondering why Dylan would contribute a new song
to a flat-out stinker like Gods and Generals
), here's another intriguing passage from Bob Dylan's Chronicles
, on his early days in the archives as a Civil War enthusiast. (Besides Clausewitz
, he also professes an admiration for Reconstruction-era Republican Thaddeus Stevens
, who 'championed the weak' and 'made a big impression on me,' in a separate passage. (Chronicles, p. 40)"
