Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Writing songs and writing poetry are different skills, as has been noted, and that they can all be classed as literature has also been pointed out. For what it's worth, I think the old bugger deserves it. One of my Favourites is "Changing of the guards". I haven't a clue what it's about, and after all this time, I bet Dylan couldn't tell you either. But try singing it - it's brilliant! and I must read some more of Louis Macneice - thanks Allan Conn.
