The Lyrics of Prince Rogers Nelson/[Icon Symbol]: A Literary Look at a Creative Musical Poet, Philosopher, and Storyteller

Adult; Literary Essays, Critiques & Biographies; (Market)

The Lyrics of Prince is an analysis of the lyrical themes, movements, and development of Prince. McInnis seeks to show that Prince is a lyrical talent on par with Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, and Jimi Hendrix. The book shows that Prince is a metaphysical poet attempting to reconcile his individual desires in a strict and confining society. Thus, Prince’s work is a barometer for the sensibilities of the eighties as well as provides insight to the post Civil Rights African American who is grappling with place and otherness.
