Bob Dylan awarded Noble Prize for Literature.
The 75 years old singer is very happy because he receives the Noble Prize for Literature.
It’s an honor that given to novelists, poets, and short story writers, it comes with $900,000 in prize money.
Since 1993, Dylan is the first American to win. Last year, the Nobel went to journalist Svetlana Alexievich.
Bob’s songs include Blowin’ in the Wind and The Times They are A-Changin’.
According Sara Danius, Bob had been chosen because he was a great poet in the English speaking tradition.
Sara said, “For 54 years now he’s been at it reinventing himself, constantly creating a new identity.”
His family is really proud of him because he is one of a kind.
Former Poet Laureate Sir Andrew Motion said, “They have often extremely skillful rhyming aspects to them.” “They’re often the best words in the best order,” he added.
For Bob, lyrics are really important.
Last Friday, he supported The Rolling Stones at the Desert Trip Festival in California.
Bob began his musical career in 1959.
The singer is an inspiration for everyone, especially for his fans. His songs are not just popular, but very meaningful.
Not everyone believes that Bob was a poet.
Novelist Norman Mailer said, “If Dylan’s a poet, I’m a basketball player.”
The singer is not just a great man, but also the best dad.
For his family, he is a very responsible father.
Bob is very busy, but he always makes sure to spend time with his family.
The singer is very thankful not just because of his success, but also for the supports he receives.
