This essay argues that Bob Dylan was “shaped but not confined” by the Minnesota of his youth. It examines the relationship between Minnesota and Dylan's art in terms of markers of place (names, geographical references), markers of voice (vocabulary, pronunciation), and habits of thought: pastoralism, prairie populism, and the sense of mission that underlies Dylan's version of the American jeremiad.
