This intelligent and thoroughly researched volume examines the cultural and political significance of the words and music of Woodrow Wilson 'Woody' Guthrie - one of the best-loved folk singers of all time. "Prophet Singer" traces how Guthrie documented the history of America's poor and disadvantaged through his lyrics, as well as looking at how he manipulated these lyrics to explore pressing issues and bring greater political and economic awareness to the common people. Using interviews, recordings, drawings and writings from Guthrie himself, this volume presents a unique viewpoint on the creative impulse behind the ideals expressed in his music and lyrics - which are known and loved by millions.
