Tim Dowling’s line-by-line analysis of a poem about Elvis, written and performed by Bono. Elvis: American David is to be broadcast on BBC’s Radio 4 next week, apparently. To read it in full, click here. Just in case you haven’t bothered, here’s an extract:
“elvis with God on his knees.
elvis on three tvs.
elvis here come the killer bees head full of honey, potato chips and cheese.”
It’s probably one you have to hear performed. Literary analyses welcome.
