Besides Dylan Thomas, does anyone know of Bob Dylan's main literary influences? Maybe favorite authors/books or poets/poetry?

Thanks.

Allen Ginsberg
Kerouac, but in particular On The Road

Woody Guthrie's Bound For Glory. Perhaps not 'literary influence' but an influence nonetheless

TS Eliot and his buddy Ezra Pound (The Wasteland. . . Desolation Row)

Did you guys say Rimbaud?
Paul Verlaine
Dante
Kerouac
Ginsberg

And I'm pretty sure he read Gertrude Stein. . .Tarantula contains glimpses of her influence.
