Bob Dylan’s album Blonde on blonde (1966) contains the track Temporary like Achilles, a sort of modern serenade , which a poor man in love sings outside the door of his beloved one, with the only result of being unmercifully excluded by her. The song is full of cunning puns (such as “Velvet door” and so on) and irony, which culminates in the embarrassing description of Achilles as a rough, voracious energumen keeping guard in front of the girl’s house.

Abstract

Bob Dylan’s album Blonde on blonde (1966) contains the track Temporary like Achilles, a sort of modern serenade , which a poor man in love sings outside the door of his beloved one, with the only result of being unmercifully excluded by her. The song is full of cunning puns (such as “Velvet door” and so on) and irony, which culminates in the embarrassing description of Achilles as a rough, voracious energumen keeping guard in front of the girl’s house.
