Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Anybody notice it was a literature award, not a songwriting competition? As poetry, MacColl's not even close. Dylan's stuff ranges from image-heavy dreamy stuff to concrete story-telling, and it changed things. I do think he deserved it.
