National Review on Bob Dylan "copying"

From the National Review:

To use the word “plagiarism” to describe what Dylan does, then, seems incorrect, tarnished as the word is with allegations of theft and deceit. The intention, in Dylan’s case, could not be further from the truth. The works of others are not something he turns to in times of sloth-induced desperation to pass off as his own. Rather, they are wellsprings of invention and interpretation, works to pair with others to create something new and, in many cases a whole greater in quality than the sum of its parts.
