Marqusee discusses Dylan's early influence by Woody Guthrie, his involvement with the protest movement, his ready youthful empathy with the American Civil Rights Movement and with those in poverty within the USA; and his increasing disillusionment in the mid-sixties with protest politics. This was paralleled musically by his moving away from the use of a simple acoustic guitar, to a full backing group; and lyrically, by his evolution of a highly complex poetic style which influenced popular music for a generation.
