AMST-A 354 LITERATURE OF ROCK N ROLL (3 CR.)
What constitutes the literature of rock music? Some would say that a three-paragraph review of the latest CD in Rolling Stone is the best and perhaps only example. But what about the countless books, essays, articles and other extended works that have been written about this music? How (and why?) is it possible, for example, to use rock music as the framework for a written discourse on American history (and in such discourse, suggest a logical, relevant connection between Abraham Lincoln and Elvis Presley?) How could an extended review of a rock 'n' roll album transform itself (logically and correctly) into first-rate political and social commentary? All of these questions - and many more - will be addressed in this course, as we explore the 'written word of rock 'n' roll' in all its wonderfully complex and fascinating permutations.
