Bob Dylan Wins Nobel Prize

2016-10-13 12:22:441 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

Bob Dylan has become only the ninth American to win the Nobel Prize for literature. The folk-rock icon is also the first person to ever win the prize as a songwriter. But the Nobel Committee feels that Dylan fits in the ancient tradition of great storytellers. In a statement, the committee writes, "If you look far back … you discover Homer and Sappho. They wrote poetic texts which were meant to be performed, and it’s the same way for Bob Dylan. We still read Homer and Sappho, and we enjoy it."
