Bob Dylan Awarded The 2016 Nobel Prize In Literature

Stockholm, Sweden...Today Professor Sara Danius, the Permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy made the announcement for the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature. The Nobel Prize in Literature 2016 was awarded to Bob Dylan "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition".

bobdylan





Bob Dylan was born on May 24, 1941 in Duluth, Minnesota. He grew up in a Jewish middle-class family in the city of Hibbing. As a teenager he played in various bands and with time his interest in music deepened, with a particular passion for American folk music and blues. One of his idols was the folk singer Woody Guthrie. He was also influenced by the early authors of the Beat Generation, as well as by modernist poets.

Dylan moved to New York City in 1961 and began to perform in clubs and cafés in Greenwich Village. He met the record producer John Hammond with whom he signed a contract for his debut album, Bob Dylan (1962). In the following years he recorded a number of albums which have had a tremendous impact on popular music: Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited in 1965, Blonde On Blonde in 1966 and Blood On The Tracks in 1975. His productivity continued in the following decades, resulting in masterpieces like Oh Mercy (1989), Time Out Of Mind (1997) and Modern Times (2006).

Dylan’s tours in 1965 and 1966 attracted a lot of attention. For a period he was accompanied by film maker D. A. Pennebaker, who documented life around the stage in what would come to be the movie Dont Look Back (1967). Dylan has recorded a large number of albums revolving around topics such as: the social conditions of man, religion, politics and love. The lyrics have continuously been published in new editions, under the title Lyrics. As an artist, he is strikingly versatile; he has been active as painter, actor and scriptwriter.

Besides his large production of albums, Dylan has published experimental work like Tarantula (1971) and the collection Writings and Drawings (1973). He has written an autobiography, Chronicles (2004), which depicts memories from the early years in New York and which provides glimpses of his life at the center of popular culture. Since the late 1980s, Bob Dylan has toured persistently, an undertaking called the “Never-Ending Tour”. Dylan has the status of an icon. His influence on contemporary music is profound, and he is the object of a steady stream of secondary literature.

I played his music all day long. He was a prolific writer.
His unique voice made each song wonderful to hear.
"The Times They Are A-Changin","Blowin' In The Wind", "Hey Mr. Tambourine Man","Just Like A Woman","Knocking On Heaven's Door",
"Lay Lady Lay","If Not For You","A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall".
His songs and his presence at anti-war and Peace rallies made him eligible for the Nobel Prize. I'm glad my generation had a singer/song writer who is well qualified for this honor. Thank You Mr. Dylan for giving those tumultuous times songs that survive the test of time.

    Then again, I can remember him getting booed off stage for being a sell out.

    Now he is some kind of icon?

    All the while, the sycophants are complaining that too many white Jewish males are getting nobel prizes in physics!

    This f has never written more than a stanza. Many of them "borrowed" in the name of plagerism, excuse me, respectful adaptation. ....

    Let's see, today a burned out junkie gets a Nobel, tomorrow a burnt witch war criminal gets the white house?

    Dark days are arising all along the watch tower....

Proof positive that poetry takes many forms. Go back and listen to the lyrics; more relevant today than ever.
