Bob Dylan wins 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature

Grosse Ehre für die Musik-Legende Bob Dylan. Der 75-jährige US-amerikanische Sänger und Songwriter erhält den Literaturnobelpreis 2016. Er wird für seine poetischen Neuschöpfungen in der grossen amerikanischen Song-Tradition geehrt, wie die Schwedische Akademie heute, übrigens am 75. Geburtstag von Paul Simon, in Stockholm bekanntgab. In den vergangenen Jahren war Dylan immer wieder als möglicher Preisträger gehandelt worden.

Bob Dylan has won the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature „for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition“, it was announced today.

Nobel Prize permanent secretary Sara Danius said: „He is a great poet in the English tradition.“

Dylan is the first American to win the Nobel Prize in Literature since author Toni Morrison in 1993.
Speaking after the announcement, Prof Danius compared Dylan to the Ancient Greek poets: „Homer and Sappho – they wrote poetic texts that were meant to be performed with instruments . . . it’s the same with Bob Dylan.“
