A look at the iconic style of Nobel Prize victor Bob Dylan

US folk singer and songwriter Bob Dylan was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature on Thursday.

The Nobel Prize in Literature for 2016 is awarded to Bob Dylan "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition", Danius said at the Swedish Academy. It is validation of his talent, yes, but also of your taste and the cultural and political revolution you embraced: Bob Dylan the rock star wins the Nobel in literature, and by proxy the soundtrack of your generation gets acknowledged for its enduring value.

Sara Danius, permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy, said in a video interview posted on the Academy's website, that Dylan is "a great poet". He is a great poet in the English-speaking tradition, and he is a wonderful sampler, a very original sampler.

Legendary Canadian singer-songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie said she spent some time with Dylan a few years ago backstage at a blues festival in Australia where they "had some laughs".

Other writers were leery of the decision.

More than 50 years on, Dylan is still writing songs and is often on tour, performing his dense poetic lyrics, sung in a sometimes rasping voice that has been ridiculed by detractors.

Trump's apology, saying the NY businessman still has a lot to answer for at the second presidential debate on Sunday night. I don't think we can dignify documents dumped by Wikileaks and just assume that they're all accurate and true.

It considered "Like a Rolling Stone" Dylan's best song. "Today, I'm a lover of Bob Dylan".

According to John Bushey, the host of KUMD's Bob Dylan radio show Highway 61 Revisited, this isn't just an honor for Dylan it's an honor that means to the city of Duluth and the Northland as the folk singer represents one of their own.

"They hold up because they're so wide and there are so many levels in them", Dylan says. "Bob Dylan such a handsome news". "On this occasion only a handful of his fans managed to cash in, leaving us with a far more manageable payout". Scottish novelist Irvine Welsh, author of Trainspotting, decried it as "an ill-conceived nostalgia award" made for "senile, gibbering hippies". Dylan is the brilliant inheritor of the bardic tradition.

British fantasy writer Philip Pullman praised Dylan in hopes that the door that has cracked open a bit for songwriters might continue to widen, tweeting: "Bob Dylan is a great choice for the Nobel Prize". The six awards will be handed out on December 10, the anniversary of prize founder Alfred Nobel's death in 1896.

The Nobel prizes in economics medicine, physics, chemistry and the Nobel Peace Prize have all been announced.
