Few living artists have been as deeply mythologized as Bob Dylan — and few artists seemed to have despised it more. 

Critics and authors have pinned him with nearly every grandiose title in the book, seemingly trying to match his fascinating folk poetry: “prophet,” “mystic,” “the 20th century’s Shakespeare.” But as much as our country tried to yoke him with the mantle of “spokesman” or the “voice of a generation,” Dylan always seemed to find away to slip out of it. 

“You feel like an imposter when someone thinks you’re something and you’re not,” Dylan once told Ed Bradley in a 2004 60 Minutes interview, decrying labels like “prophet” and “voice of a generation.” “You’re just not that person everybody thinks you are, though they call you that all the time. ‘You’re the prophet. You’re the savior.’ I never wanted to be a prophet or savior. Elvis maybe — I could easily see myself becoming him. But prophet? No.”
