Bob Dylan Awarded the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature!
Many among us will never forget the phrase, “Blowing in the Wind,” Dylan’s defining response to where we can find the answer to the question, “How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man?” For so very many of us, that question is the summary statement of the civil rights movement of the 60’s. The Nobel Prize committee has honored Dylan “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.” (Sara Danius for The Swedish Academy) In some circles, the award is controversial, but, for many, Dylan’s win is “right-on.” The Library has purchased Dylan’s just published work, Lyrics 1961-2012.
