- First Bob Dylan responded not to the award of the Nobel Prize for Literature. After a week appeared on his website stating 'winner of the Nobel Prize in literature. That took about 24 hours. The designation is already gone.
Even the Nobel Prize was the 75-year-old singer, lyricist and composer are not addressing. In Stockholm, however, it remains optimistic he'll come on November 10 in the Swedish capital to personally receive the award. But certainly is not. Dylan is long known as quirky.
On his Web site appeared the words of the Nobel Prize in the book The Lyrics 1961-2012, not coincidentally a collection of his lyrics. Why the entry is gone, is not listed.
