Overview

The Rose & the Briar: Death, Love and Liberty in the American Ballad by Sean Wilentz

The Rose & the Briar assembles an astonishing group of writers and artists-Paul Muldoon, Stanley Crouch, R. Crumb, Jon Langford, Sharyn McCrumb, Luc Sante, Joyce Carol Oates, Dave Marsh, and more than a dozen other novelists, essayists, performers, and critics-to explore the ineffable power of the American ballad. From "Barbara Allen" through "The Wreck of Old 97," to contemporary ballads by Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen, The Rose & the Briar is a powerfully original work that goes to the heart of the American psyche.
