Listen to audio of Dylan’s Nobel Prize lecture


Late last year, Bob Dylan issued his official acceptance of the Nobel Prize for Literature. Today, the Nobel committee released an audio recording of his lecture, a requirement for accepting the prize.

It was already a compelling set of words, but it’s interesting to hear them in Dylan’s unique voice.

The audio recording is on YouTube:

As many of you probably know, Dylan was born in Duluth, Minnesota, and raised in the Mesabi Iron Range city of Hibbing. Just three years after leaving Hibbing he the biggest name in the American folk scene and the rest is, quite literally, history.

    I love his FM stuff he did for Sirius XM I believe. Theme Time Radio. The Nobel stuff reminds me a lot of that. We hear Dylan share his thoughts there too. Thanks
