Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
who was it said:
"with poetry the music is made to fit the words, with song the words are shoehorned into the music"

Now shoot me down with a ten foot feather but the constant in that epithet is words. Literature would be pretty blank without them.

And anyway the Nobel committee cited influence as well as their regard for Bob's words.

Queen Kristina of Sweden said "He who chooses his own path, needs no map". And Bob has certainly ploughed his own furrow.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaand - He don't need no stinkin' badge.
