A Little Weekend Reading for the Vinyl Gen: The Jurisprudence of Bob Dylan
Perhaps also of interest to the Post-Vinyl Gen, New York Law School prof Michael L. Perlin's Tangled Up in Law: The Jurisprudence of Bob Dylan [SSRN]. From the abstract:
A careful examination of Bob Dylan’s lyrics reveals a writer - a scholar - with a well-developed jurisprudence, ranging over a broad array of topics that relate to civil and criminal law, public and private law. His lyrics reflect the work of a thinker who takes “the law” seriously in multiple iterations - the role of lawyers, the role of judges, the disparities between the ways the law treats the rich and the poor, the inequality of the criminal and civil justice systems, the corruption of government, the police, and the judiciary, and more.
