I also agree with Moog. Words are words, being in a book or as part of a song. I could understand a complaint saying that better writers exist, which is a subjective opinion; but Bob Dylan was always a suitable option for the prize.

Well I don't know whether he deserves it or not really I've been reading poetry all my life and I never really regarded his lyrics as poetry although I suppose you could look at them that way I always more considered Jim Morrison's words as the most poetic in popular music

On A personal level I'm not sure Bob deserves this award for two reasons .....number 1 he didn't attend George Harrison's concert for George at the Albert Hall I mean he was in a group with him for a few years and the other reason is I spent a fortune going to see him and he never said a word during the show he never smiled or said hello.... and he changed Melody of every song ....I only recognised them because of the words, it was probably the worst concert I've ever been too.

He was probably being Iconic   ha2ha

Bob Dylan: Nobel Literature Prize left me speechless

Bob Dylan: Nobel Literature Prize left me speechless


US singer-songwriter Bob Dylan says he accepts his Nobel Prize in literature, ending a silence since being awarded the prize earlier this month.

He said the honour had left him "speechless", the Nobel Foundation said in a statement.

The foundation said it had not yet been decided if the singer would attend the awards ceremony in December.

However, Dylan reportedly told a UK newspaper he intended to pick up the award in person "if at all possible".

The award to the star was announced on 13 October "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition".

However, his failure to acknowledge it raised eyebrows.

Last week, a member of the Swedish Academy, which awards the Nobel prizes, described his silence as "impolite and arrogant".

But on Friday, the Nobel Foundation said Dylan had called Sara Danius, Permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy, telling her: "The news about the Nobel Prize left me speechless. I appreciate the honour so much."

Although the statement said it was unclear if Dylan would attend the prize-giving banquet in Stockholm, the UK's Daily Telegraph quoted him as saying: "Absolutely. If it's at all possible."

In an interview with the paper he described the prize as "amazing, incredible".

"It's hard to believe. Whoever dreams about something like that?" the paper quoted him as saying.

I just found this in my email, from 1964. I guess I should check it more often. ;)

The author was wrong.

"Dylan is always dressed informally—the possibility that he will ever be seen in a tie is as remote as the possibility that Miss Baez will perform in an evening gown..."
