Bob Dylan 2016 Nobel Lecture in Literature

Bob Dylan's recent response to his Nobel Literature Prize is such a holy testament to the genius of the man...

His vast, erudite knowledge and intellect is matched equally by his enduring enthusiasm and perfectly illustrates why he is such an engaging artist... In fact there is absolutely no doubt in my mind he is thee single, most important artist to have walked the earth (and on water) EVER.

On a visceral level Dylan's spoken voice is utterly beguiling and mesmerising... And especially lovely to listen to late at night with subdued lighting and a beverage of your choice.

This spoken parable, this earthy epistle also serves as a smarting slap in the face for all those negative naysayers who chose to criticise him for not acknowledging the award on their time frame rather than his - They are not worthy - Patience is very much a virtue and here the ultimate lesson because eventually we receive a true gift, a pearl of great price and a fitting work of art in itself from the master painter of yet another masterpiece.
