Magic Circles

4.25  ·  Rating Details  ·  4 Ratings  ·  1 Review
This ground-breaking book shows how John Lennon and Paul McCartney turned pop song lyrics into private conversations, which gradually extended to other major songwriters of the 1960s, including Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones. These 'magic circles' introduced radical ideas about sex, drugs and rebellion that were to transform popular music and culture in the 1960s.

The Book That I Read

I started this book about the Beatles with high expectations and have to admit that I finished it slightly disappointed that it wasn't a different book to the one it turned out to be.
However, it's not always fair to judge a book by what it is not.
So, whatever my reservations, I still think it deserves four stars.
So why?

Literary Criticism

At its core, "Magic Circles" is an exercise in literary criticism of the lyrics of the Beatles on their albums up to "Revolver".
