Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
I expect consistency of good writing to be one of the considerations that a judge should think about when awarding a prize, in my opinion Dylans writing is a Curates Egg good and bad in places.
I do think Miles Davis played enjoyable music, and i have seen evidence that Picasso could draw, none of them were awarded the Nobel prize for Literature, but why not, the prize has evidently become meaningless
