I understand what you're saying, and I definitely understand the  
tendency to look at the past through rose-colored glasses.  But at the  
same time, why should latecomers miss out on inspiring  
art/music/writing just because they happened to be too young, or just  
otherwise occupied, the first time?  I don't think there's anything  
wrong with exploring the past, especially if it helps inspire the  
future.  Perhaps a balance of past and present works best.
