Bob Dylan wins Nobel Prize in literature

Bob Dylan has won the Nobel Prize in literature, organizers of the award said Thursday (Oct. 13). They lauded the 75-year-old music star "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition." With songs like "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are A-Changin'," Dylan created anthems for the anti-war and civil rights movements. The literature honor is one of the five Nobel Prizes established by the will of Alfred Nobel in 1895, the others being prizes in chemistry, physics, medicine and the Nobel Peace Prize.
