Bob Dylan is mildly autistic
Dylan:No Direction Home. I must say that it was well done. Scorsese did an excellent job.
Bob Dylan and his autistic world
Having watched that documentary, it seems Bob Dylan is mildly autistic (How come? Looking at that film, though Bob was entirely comfortable communicating via the channel his autism enthused him toward, he seemed to embrace messages from the outside world only if he could apply them to his autistic world. He seemed to understand why the words were put into his songs and poetry, but he did not see any need to explain why he put them there.
See here a documentary about Asperger Syndrome and see if bob's
Autism if it could really be true.
Dylan is a master writer of poems/songs and apparently interested in little else. Through his gift of verse/song he was able to create his own abstract world.
Dylan an outsiderHe looked at the outside world with his art - and took a 'photograph' of it. But he could not easily explain why there was a bird in the picture flying in the distance, even though he was aware of it as he took the photograph. He could see where it fitted in the picture and the soul within recognised its crucial relevance to the picture as a whole. For him, that was enough.
He could not articulate the relevance of that bird to those outside his world - or even (possibly) to those inside his world would render him as a loner, an outsider. There will always be parts of him the world will never see, nor understand.
