Bob Dylan has just won the Nobel Literature Prize

Professor Christopher Ricks, whom I never went to hear at university, famously thought Dylan, whom I've never heard, a fine poet. Q.E.D.

I must listen to the man's music but he seems as worthy as Pearl Buck and much more so than Obama, who was given the peace prize before he'd done anything, just for not being George W. Bush.

  1. I've heard Ricks lecture about Dylan's writing: he made a brilliant case for it althoughy, oddly, I couldn't remember any of his arguments when confronted with the actual music.
