Bob Dylan received the Nobel Prize in Literature Automatic translate
STOCKHOLM. Sensational, but long awaited decision of the Nobel Committee. The day the new Nobel Prize winner was announced sadly coincided with the announcement of the death of the Italian playwright and director Dario Fo, who was awarded the coveted award in 1997 for his work in which he defended the weak and humiliated, criticized the powers that be like the bold heroes of the comedy del arte.
Almost the same words can be addressed to Bob Dylan. A cult rock musician, author of antiwar pamphlets and confessional lyrics, a talented artist mixed all the cards for bookmakers, critics and fans of Murakami. The latter again went overboard, along with other favorites in the literary race - Kenyan Ngugi Wa Thiong’o, American Philip Milton Roth and Syrian Adonis (Adunis). The main literary award was added to the Pulitzer Prize, countless Grammys, Oscars, Golden Globes and the status of a great musician. The wording proposed by the Nobel Committee harmoniously united the main personalities of Bob Dylan. He proposed new poetic images, vividly designating them within the framework of the great American song tradition.
The epithet “masterpiece” with respect to his legacy does not seem an exaggeration. Let the sensational, but long-awaited decision only confirm the status of Dylan as a real deep poet, whose work changed the world, modern music and influenced public self-awareness.
