hey ryan,

i recently bought Freewheelin’ somewhere in NY. some of those songs are too good for a 21-year old. i think the Northern Girl one is so beautiful. he sings with such a longing voice. and his poetry is so haunting. after reading the lyrics i did my research and found out that dylan thomas was bob dylan’s favorite poet, and promptly visited the library for dylan thomas poetry. i also checked out leonard cohen, byron and blake. i’m a huge nick drake fan too (anyone?) and his whole persona fascinates me quite a bit. the whole idea of a 20th century tormented troubadour… i read that drake read blake and byron.
