Bob Dylan On Screen

On May 12, 1963, Bob Dylan left the set of the Ed Sullivan Show, incensed the producers rejected his decision to “Talkin’ John Birch Paranoid Blues.” This non-circulation of his image through television provided valuable publicity and Dylan would boast of “the song they didn’t let me play on TV.” This incident stands at the beginning of an ambivalent and complicated relationship between Dylan’s persona, as expressed through his words and music, and its dissemination through screen media.

Born in 1934 in the village of Beauchamp, near Pontoise (France), Claude Pélieu was an influential figure in a number of contemporary transatlantic artistic and literary scenes from the 1960s until his death in 2002, yet he remains relatively unknown and absent from historical narratives of the period. In the 1950s, he began drawing and experimenting with collage, and later studied painting in Fernand Leger’s atelier. He published his first poems in 1956 in the magazine Rendez-vous avec le sol, followed by further texts in 1959 in Henri Chopin’s Cinquième saison.

Sherwood Anderson’s 1928 Tar: A Midwest Childhood opens with the title character remembering his childhood and acknowledging that he has, within this narrative, created his childhood midwestern hometown almost entirely from his imagination, “one place all his own, the product of his own fancy” (4). “To tell the truth, Tar was trying,” the narrator promises, “to get at something it was almost impossible to get at in the reality of life,” the inevitable changes that disrupt and discount the intertwined memories of childhood and place (7-8).
