I am SO happy! Bob Dylan is the first musician and song writer that wins a Nobel prize in Literature. For me he was part of my youth and I still sing his songs, full of meaning, off tune while in the shower. Many of us will remember his songs and they are part of our memories much more than any book. Blowing in the wind and Like a rolling stone are two of his many songs. They are songs to be thought about, not just sung. And he has also written . For me this is a moment of joy!

I have to respectfully disagree. If you give the prize to Dylan, then you open the door to other musicians and writers of TV shows and movies. You said song, not book. Literature and music are two separate entities.

@msiduri I will not get into another country´s politics. But I am truly glad that a wonderful poet who meant so much for an entire generation has recieved this prize. As for Marxists who did not donate their prizes, I can name a few, including our national poet, comunist Pablo Neruda. The only person I remember that did not accept the prize was Jean Paul Sartre.
