'Among many contemporary poets and writers there is a reverence approaching myopia towards certain iconic singer-songwriters from the early 19, most notable Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, which prevents clear-eyed critical analysis of their careers and current work. There is also confusion as to whether these singer-songwriters should be considered poets, lyricists, poet-lyricists, singer-poets or a dozen other hyphenated nouns.' (Author's introduction 116)
