What’s wrong with Dylan getting a Nobel? You did not write it.
The answer my friend, is blowin’ in the wind.

Arin Basu, Bob Dylan was never a book writer. He wrote songs and was a singer himself. Songs are altogether a different category. Songs are not literature — in the traditional sense at least.

Do any of us ever go to a public library and ask for a book by Bob Dylan?

My question is: why would he be considered for Literature at all? Was there any shortage of Nobel-worthy writers in world literature?

The Nobel Committee has violated its own rules and played a sinister game this year. It’s a big blow to the writing community and the book world.

Personally, as a writer, I feel slighted and shocked.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
