Reflections on the American Dream in the Views and Songs of Bruce Springsteen

Abstract : When promoting his album Wrecking Ball in Paris in 2012, Bruce Springsteen told the journalists that his work had always been about judging the distance between the American reality and the American Dream. This study explores one major myth of the United States, the American Dream, in some songs of Bruce Springsteen. It also tries to fill the gap between the dream and real life in the U.S. today.
