Read full description of the books:

I have read some rather hilarious discussions over the last day across social media regarding Bob Dylan’s right, or lack thereof, to the noble literature prize.

One of the funniest was a rather lengthy post by an unnamed individual who defined “true literature.” According to his infinite wisdom, this excludes all poetry and song. You see, novels are the most complex form of literary expression because they are the longest and most thought out; therefore, Dylan isn’t literature. Another post claimed that literature is the written word, so Dylan’s work being spoken/sung means it’s also not literature: its music.

These people clearly have never read a poem so they should keep their ignorant mouths shut!

Now I had trouble not setting these people to rights. I mean opinion of the arts is always a subjective thing, highbrow or lowbrow, it’s all about personal reaction. But that is beside the point here. Objectively speaking, Dylan’s work is literature. There’s no two ways about it, no room for discussion, only fact. Words set to rhythm, with metre, are a form of poetry. Stick some instruments in the background and it becomes music, but it’s still poetry: they just become lyrics. People who fail to recognise this fact ignore the point of poetry. Most poetry is meant to be spoken, and some cannot be read without singing. Dylan’s work is literature, and for all his contribution to the arts he deserves the noble prize.

To say otherwise is to ignore countless generations of oral tradition, and by extension spit in the face of poetry itself. This collection of poetry here isn’t why Dylan won the prize. This is mainly experimental stuff and it isn’t as good as his music. It’s his lyricism that did it, but this seems an appropriate place to have a little rant about stupid people who don’t understand literature.

Read information about the author

Ebook Tarantula read Online! Bob Dylan (born Robert Allen Zimmerman) is an American singer-songwriter, author, musician, poet, and, of late, disc jockey who has been a major figure in popular music for five decades. Much of Dylan's most celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when he became an informal chronicler and a reluctant figurehead of American unrest. A number of his songs, such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'", became anthems of the anti-war and civil rights movements. His most recent studio album, Modern Times, released on August 29, 2006, entered the U.S. album charts at #1, making him, at age sixty five, the oldest living person to top those charts.

Bob Dylan won the Nobel Prize in Literature (2016).
