Last week, Bob Dylan, an American folk singer who is one of the symbols of the peace movement in the 1960s, won a Nobel Prize in Literature. Dylan’s award is seen as the most radical choice in history and stretches the definition of literature.

Woodstock started the free love movement and changed the course of a nation.
