Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Jack, thank you for informing me about MacColl's Brechtian work. In this thread, the contrast between the two was painted so vividly that their possible partaking of different flavors of modernism would never have occurred to me. I didn't mean to suggest that Joyce was an influence on Dylan, just that they both ruthlessly used and reshaped traditional forms for their own ends.
