Summary
Since releasing his first record in 1973, Springsteen has become one of the few twentieth-century singer-songwriters to serve as the voice of his generation, a defining artist whose works reflect the values, dreams, and concerns of many Americans. Deardorff explores the works of "The Boss," defining the nature of Springsteen's cultural influence. He considers the trenchant commentary Springsteen's albums make on the mythology of the American Dream, working-class concerns, the importance of social justice, and the evocation of an American spirit
