Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Bernard Shaw once wrote that Wagner's music was a lot better than it sounded.

The same kind of thing could be said about Dylan's writing. It gets inside you. And not so much the stuff that is openly trying to sound "poetic".
