Write an expository essay about the literature that Bob Dylan reads in Chronicles.
NOTE: you have to read CHRONICLES by Bob Dylan (volume 1)
Guidelines: An expository essay exposes information about a certain topic. In this case, Bob Dylan, the author who won the Nobel Prize for literature in 2016 — NOT the rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer. Additionally, identify and explain his literary influences — (NOT MUSICAL IDOLS) —that Dylan reveals in his autobiography Chronicles.
Furthermore, your introductory paragraph must state your thesis, main idea, about the authors, (not musicians),who helped Bob Dylan’s growth as an artist. For example: Bob Dylan’s lyrics have resonated throughout the world of books with the same seriousness as his literary namesake: Dylan Thomas. “I’d seen some poems by Dylan Thomas.” (p. 78)
Further, the main body of your essay must develop your thesis by quoting all the references that Dylan makes to various literary figures, or texts which have inspired him.
Your concluding paragraph must recapitulate your thesis. This assignment is Googleproof; so going on-line will be pointless.
Expose the theatre pieces, novels, poems, journals, and pamphlets that shaped Dylan’s literate imagination. Be sure to integrate quotes from chapters one, two, three, four and five. Also, always indicate the proper pagination in parenthesis. For example: “I had broken myself of the habit of thinking in short song cycles and began reading longer and longer poems to see if I could remember anything I read about in the beginning.” (p. 56)
Self-expression: Allow your imagination to blend with Dylan’s imagination like the open mouth of a singer blending with the sound hole of a guitar. Embed similes, metaphors, rhymes, also hyperboles into your essay. Moreover, expose your creativity too.
An expository essay requires objective voicing. So do not use personal pronouns such as “I,” “me,” “you,” “we,” or “our.” Always use the 5 W’s, not generic terms such as “most people,” or “in today’s society”; nor indefinite pronouns such as “someone,’ “something,” “somewhere,” or “thing.” Avoid repetition of the same words by finding synonyms in thesaurus.com.
