The Myth of Popular Culture from Dante to Dylan is a fascinating examination of the cultural traditions of the American novel, Hollywood, and British and American rock music which leads us to redefine our concept of the division between "high" and "low" culture. * A stimulating history of high and low culture from Dante Alighieri to Bob Dylan, providing a controversial defence of popular culture* Seeks to rebut the durable belief that only high culture is 'dialectical' and popular culture is not by turning Theodor Adorno's theories on 'pop' against themselves* Presents a critical analysis of three popular traditions: the American novel, Hollywood, and British and American rock music* Offers an original account of Bob Dylan as an example of how the distinction between high and low culture is highly problematic* A provocative book for any student, scholar or general reader, who is interested in popular culture
