Bob Dylan and the Nobel Prize for Literature

Standard

Well, the dust has settled and there are other stories to occupy the minds of the newsmongers. Am I bitter? A little, I suppose. But I have to concede that Bob Dylan is a significant poet and, if it’s lifetime achievements we’re talking about, his lifetime as a writer trumps mine. So I’m happy to say, “Well done, Bob!” and wait my turn. I just hope the Nobel Committee appreciates that my lifetime is finite so they’d better get a move on.

One thought on “Bob Dylan and the Nobel Prize for Literature

  1. Oddly, Alfred Nobel stated that the awards would be made for advances made in the PRECEEDING YEAR— which the committee chooses to ignore.
