    I’m a big Bob Dylan fan, but I always get a liltte put off by the voice of a generation thing. At what point to we appreciate an artist for his or her achievements and not focus so much on the period they performed in?I think most people read Hemingway today because of his craftsmanship as a storyteller, not because he was the voice of the Lost Generation. that kind of stuff still gets some historical interest, but it’s not the overrriding factor in his continuing importance as a writer.Hopefully, Dylan will continue to be more and more apprreciated as a songwriter and musician and less as some sort of hippie touchstone. After all, once he got into his electric phase, most of his songs were less political and more inventive.
