Around the same time Mr. Ricks also began listening to Mr. Dylan's love songs. "You love a song at first by applying a person you knew to that song," he said. "And then it very beautifully turns into the other, complimentary thing, which is that you understand the person better by virtue of the song, and it's a lovely sort of virtuous circle that this is. The extraordinary applicability of the songs does seem to me to be part of their greatness."

-- From an article in today's NY Times on Christopher Ricks, professor of poetry at Oxford, Bob Dylan fan and author of the book, Dylan's Visions of Sin.
