Bob Dylan's Nobel Prize

The Nobel Prize for Literature may not be as rigorous and respected as the Nobels in the hard sciences, but neither is it as corrupted as the Peace Prize; like the Nobel in Economics, it’s still very much subjective and open to argument, and it has a distinguished roster of past winners. Naturally, the unorthodox decision to give the award to Bob Dylan – probably the most outside-the-box choice since Winston Churchill in 1953 – has people buzzing about the Nobel, and that alone is a victory for a category that h as tended, in recent years, to honor authors who are not that widely read in the English-speaking world.
