Unbelievably, Bob Dylan is 70 this May. The Captain's Tower is a birthday present anthology of poems concerned with Dylan's life, his work, and his cultural impact. One of the most distinguished lyricists of the poets-war period, Dylan has entertained and inspired poets, writers generally and millions of ordinary fans with the imagery, wit and technique of his writing, be it in songs of love, protest, faith or pure Dylan-ness. In this book the poets answer back in a response to Dylan's creativity, capacity to inspire and his enormous influence on culture and writing. Here are poems by Allen Ginsberg, Lachlan Mackinnon, Glyn Maxwell, Matthew Sweeney, Jermey Reed, Linda Chase, Chris McCabe, Helen Kitson, Sophie Hannah, Wendy Cope, Linda France, Mark Ford, Andrew Motion, Owen Sheers, Paul Henry, Roger McGough, Roddy Lumsden, Peter Finch, Paul Batchelor, Paul Muldoon, Hugo Williams and Ian McMillan
