Ms. Dresser has designed a close encounter with the lives and songs of Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan. These master songwriters admired each other and, in many ways, drew from the same creative well, the cultural zeitgeist and hunger of an age that turned singer-songwriters into prophets. Their musical and poetic outpourings brought us songs of love and hate, hope and warning, winners and losers. Ms. Dresser will put all this in the context of Cohen and Dylan’s lived experiences, with close attention to what shaped the aesthetics of their work. Join her and OLLI to explore the poetry of songs and songs as poems in the art of this creative duo.
