By Margarete Suppes

Seminar paper from the yr 2015 within the topic Musicology, grade: 1,3, Justus-Liebig-University Giessen (Department of English), language: English, summary: As an aficionado of filmed biographies, I came upon the 2007 published motion picture "Factory Girl". This woman, who's larger referred to as Edie Sedgwick or Andy Warhol’s first “Superstar”, was once normal to me as a result of a Warhol exposition I had noticeable earlier than. however, something inspired me: in addition to her platonic courting with Warhol, one other guy within the motion picture seems to play a big position. It used to be a guy, with whom the “Factory lady” falls in love with, yet is finally left in which stimulated on her tragically finishing manner. It didn't take lengthy to determine that this movie personality used to be essentially portraying Bob Dylan because the biographical motion picture itself merely covers a ninety minute lengthy Hollywood adaption of Edie Sedgwick’s existence, i used to be prompted to profit extra approximately Dylan’s genuine connection to her, the Factory’s position, and Andy Warhol.

Thus, my challenge appeared transparent: listening towards Dylan’s albums of the Nineteen Sixties and checking either biographies in addition to similar literature on the way to locate connections among the 2 artist’s worlds. the trouble of analyzing Dylan’s songs or arranging the proof one understands approximately his lifestyles made the problem much more helpful. even though the assumption of discovering a connection among either personalities in his tune appeared ridiculously far-fetched throughout the first albums, i eventually hit pay airborne dirt and dust on "Blonde on Blonde". songs of the album characteristic ‘Edian’ features and rumors were helping this speculation for years.

As a consequence, this paintings goals on revealing those myths and discovering a potential fact among the artist Bob Dylan, specific songs of his album Blonde on Blonde, and Edie Sedgwick. first of all, the songs in query (“Leopard pores and skin tablet field Hat” and “Just Like a Woman”) will likely be analyzed nearer. After contemplating its musical and lyrical worth objectively, this paintings makes an attempt to depart room for a slightly goal interpretation. subsequent, the most a part of this paintings goes to painting the time of the song’s emergence, Bob Dylan’s existence again then, and in how a ways Edie Sedgwick’s lifestyles has intertwined with the artist’s global. With the aid of time witnesses, i'll ultimately try and separate rumors from proof and provides an summary of why i'm of the opinion that either songs were encouraged via Warhol’s “Superstar”.
