Michael Gilmour (BA’91) was so inspired by Professor Bill Heath that he mentions the name of his favorite prof in the preface to his new book, Tangled Up in the Bible: Bob Dylan and Scripture. The book offers a thorough study of Dylan’s reading of scriptures, and it explores the way in which Dylan transforms biblical images and concepts when he incorporates them into his literary world.
“Bill Heath was my favourite professor at Lakehead, and it was during his classes that I developed a love for poetry,” says Gilmour. “This has remained with me, along with the lesson that good literature has the potential to provide direction for life. It serves in some sense as a tutor, helping the reader to become a better person. I couldn't resist noting this in the preface to the book, even though Dylan's writing is outside what most consider the ‘canon’ of great western literature.”
