Bob Dylan’s first and only attempt at fiction, Tarantula, was written in 1966, but, for various reasons that prevented its publication, it did not see the light of day until 1971. A faithful reflection of Dylan’s best songs from that time period, Tarantula is required reading for anyone interested in his creative processes. The various texts, both in verse and in prose, that comprise this approximation to stream-of-consciousness writing are not exempt from the musicality of Dylan’s compositions at the time, nor from the preoccupations and worries that accompanied the artist during what may very well have been the most important year of his career.


Tarántula, primera y única aproximación de Bob Dylan a la ficción literaria, fue escrita en 1966, pero, por vicisitudes diversas que harían imposible su publicación, no vería la luz hasta 1971. Fiel reflejo de las mejores canciones de Dylan que corresponden a esa época, Tarántula es lectura obligada para todo el que esté interesado en sus procesos creativos. Los textos en verso y en prosa que forman esta aproximación a la escritura automática no están exentos ni de la musicalidad propia de las composiciones del Dylan de la época, ni de las preocupaciones que acompañan al artista en el que, posiblemente, sea el año más importante de su carrera.
