Bob Dylan breaks silence over Nobel Prize, accepts prize

Bob Dylan, the American singer-songwriter who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature has finally told the Swedish Academy that he will accept the prize.

Despite the repeated attempts by award-givers, media-shy Dylan did not make any comment on the 8 million crown ($900,000) prize and told the British Daily, the Telegraph in an interview that he will be at Nobel Prize ceremony, if he can. He also said that the news rendered him “speechless.”

The Nobel Foundation said in a statement that Dylan this week told Sara Danius, Permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy, that he now accepts the prize as the committee that awarded the Nobel Prize to Dylan had said it was up to him whether to attend the prize-giving ceremony later this year or not.

“It has not yet been decided if Bob Dylan will attend any events during the Nobel Week in Stockholm in December,” the Nobel Foundation said on Friday.

“The Nobel Foundation will share information as soon as it is available.”

The award to the star was announced on 13 October “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition”.

However, his failure to acknowledge it raised eyebrows.

Last week, a member of the Swedish Academy, which awards the Nobel prizes, described his silence as “impolite and arrogant”.
