Iman asked me to use wordle.net for ‘Visions of Johanna’, and it may be the perfect song to use for this, because it is already a vision, and a visual masterpiece.
I am not gonna pretend this little tool will explain a song that has made people write more than bible scholars,… just searching for Johanna’s true identity (Van Gogh’s sister-in-law? Joan Baez?) has been the subject of endless discussions!
Never mind, the song transcends any identity, it’s a vision of a Madonna, an idolized woman, a mysterious mythological figure, embodied in the complicated mirrors inside Dylan’s mind.
And if Louise seems more real in the song, the two female names appear like some two extremes of imagination and reality.
But Johanna’s name is so big that her vision has eaten all the space, just like in Dylan’s head.
