Can a songwriter deserve a nobel prize? (ii)
Not a few are surprised by the news that Bob Dylan has been awarded the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature. We take a look back to review his writings, mainly song lyrics with a clear poetic component to pay tribute to this fundamental figure to understand the culture of the twentieth century. But we should not stay only in his writings because the figure of this exceptional singer has inspired many writers such as Nick Hornby or Don DeLillo (each with a novel in which the protagonist is based on Bob Dylan) or even inspired many writers to write books of poetry.

Madrid, (EFE) – With 57 little-known recordings -54 unreleased and including discards-, in a 5-CD deluxe edition. This is how volume 16 of the Bob Dylan Bootleg Series will go on sale, which recovers three albums from the period 1980-1985, “Shot of Love”, “Infidels” and “Empire Burlesque”.
“Bob Dylan – Springtime In New York: The Bootleg Series, Vol.16 (1980-1985),” available Sept. 17, is the title of this new chapter of Bootleg, a series that began in 1991 to recover unreleased and discarded tracks.
These are “Let It Be Me” (first released as the B-side of the 7″ single “Heart of Mine”) and “Don’t Ever Take Yourself Away” (first released on Hawaii Five-O: Original Songs from The Television Series).
A third previously released recording, “Death Is Not The End” (a discarded take of “Infidels” with Full Force) first appeared in a version released on Dylan’s “Down In The Groove” album.
A work that “surveys a rich and often overlooked seam of Dylan’s vast and complex catalog, showcasing the provocative new musical direction Dylan took as a songwriter and recording artist from 1980 to 1985,” the release notes.

On October 13, 2016, the Swedish Academy awarded him the Nobel Prize in Literature for “having created a new poetic expression within the great American song tradition.”
However, Dylan himself acknowledged in Chronicles, Volume One that he had been influenced by Dylan Thomas in changing his stage name: “I had seen some Dylan Thomas poems. The pronunciation of Dylan and Allyn was similar. Robert Dylan. Robert Allyn. The letter D had more punch. However, the name Robert Dylan was not as appealing as Robert Allyn. People had always called me Robert or Bobby, but Bobby Dylan seemed corny to me, and then there was already Bobby Darin, Bobby Vee, Bobby Rydell, Bobby Neely and many other Bobbies. The first time I was asked my name at Saint Paul’s, I instinctively and automatically blurted out: Bob Dylan.” In December 1962, Dylan traveled to St. Paul’s, where he was born.
In December 1962, Dylan first traveled to the United Kingdom, where he was invited by director Philip Saville to appear in The Madhouse on Castle Street, a play directed for the BBC. Although the recordings were destroyed in 1968 and no copies of the play survive, Dylan appeared at the end of the performance playing “Blowin’ in the Wind.” While in London, Dylan played at various folk venues such as The Troubadour, Les Cousins and Bunjies, and learned new folk songs from artists such as Martin Carthy. He also performed at a number of folk venues such as The Troubadour, Les Cousins and Bunjies, and learned new folk songs from artists such as Martin Carthy. He also performed at the London Folk Festival.

Bob Dylan has been sued by the widow of his one-time collaborator Jacques Levy on the grounds that his heirs have not been fairly compensated following the recent sale of the songwriter’s catalog of “Blowin’ In The Wind” songs to Universal Music Group for some 250 million euros.
Dylan’s representatives have spoken out on the matter and, in statements to Pitchfork, have assured that the heirs of Levy, who died in 2004, “have received all the money they are owed” and have branded this claim as “a sad attempt to unfairly benefit from the recent sale of the catalog.”
