A study of the famous Bob Dylan song "Mr.Tamborine Man".

Why Mr. Tambourine Man is A Modern Classic The most obvious and popular interpretation of Bob Dylan'sMr. Tambourine Man is that the song is about drugs.

"Take me on a trip upon your magic swirling ship..." is asking the drug-dealer for the drugs, and then the lyrics go on to describe the physical effects on...

The new way of looking at people (prompted by the advancements in psychoanalysis among others) makes the modern man a complete man – all the...

If it is merely the fact that we can laugh at her, mock her nuances and ridicule her as we get to know her, then the Bennet mother fits the bill perfectly. She is after all, a narrow-minded and...

A person is invisible if he has no self, no identity.
