Cultural value vs Monetary Value in Art: Focus on Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan, neé Robert Allen Zimerman, was born in 1941 in the unassuming city of Duluth, Minnesota, to Abram Zimmerman, the owner of an electrical-appliance shop, and Beatrice "Beatty" Stone. Dylan spent his childhood playing in school bands that were so loud when they performed the principle would pull the plug on the microphone, and listening to rock n’ rollers like Little Richard on the radio. In 1959 he moved to Minneapolis, enrolled at the University of Minnesota and fell in love with American folk music.

My Perspective on time is not an activity in nostalgia.

Where is my future?
Is it in front of me or behind me?
Can I find it in my past?
What is becoming of this landscape
that makes up my memories I’m lost!
I’m looking for a past that wasn’t even there.

I’m listening to the past to try and find some direction
to find the thoughts
that drove me to where I’m at now,
who else has been listening?
Into my past who has seen
My memories does anyone give a shit.
