"Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl"

'The distance' is obviously 'outside'!

And 'a wildcat did growl'?? Clumsy English!

Dylan wrote a lot of dodgy lines like this. Yet he also wrote some amazing poetry.

I still think he's as deserving of the literature prize as many, for his influence as well as for his skill with words.
