A literary analysis of the lyrics of Prince. With meticulous research and insight, C. Liegh McInnis has constructed a work worthy to be considered an excellent and profound academic thesis as well as a work to shows how popular music and lyrics, especially Prince, can be used as a barometer of the times. McInnis shows through his analysis of Prince's lyrics that Prince is a symbol of the Post-Civil Rights African American individual struggling to find peace, freedom, and place while navigating the complex waters of being an individual and a member of the race.
