About the Song
"Love Minus Zero/No Limit") is a song written by Dylan for his 5th studio album "Bringing It All Back Home" released in 1965. Its main musical hook is a series of 3 descending chords.
It has been suggested that the lyrics allude to Dylan's lover bringing a needed Zen-like calm to his chaotic world. Some authors have suggested that the surreal imagery recalls Edgar Allan Poe's poem "The Raven" or the biblical Book of Daniel. Others suggest the lyrics are reminiscent of William Blake's poem "The Sick Rose". Whatever the meaning, the song lands deeply.
