By awarding Dylan the prize, the Nobel committee essentially redrew the boundaries of literature to allow for song lyrics. "I appreciate the honour so much".
Songwriter and singer Bob Dylan has said winning the Nobel Prize in Literature has left him "speechless" - two weeks after his prize was announced. The statement said it had not yet been determined if Dylan would attend the events in Stockholm. Granted, I can not take sixteen days to write this blog post, but I also understand that I am not Bob Dylan.
The foundation said it had not yet been decided if the singer would attend the awards ceremony in December.

Bill Clinton returning to Ohio for Hillary Clinton campaign
Former President Bill Clinton will return to OH this weekend to campaign for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. The slogan for the Democratic presidential nominee's campaign is "Standing Together", but hey, what difference does it make.
According to Swedish tabloid Expressen, Danius had at first missed Dylan's call from NY, but then spoke to the singer for 15 minutes after phoning him back.
The 75-year-old was named this year's laureate on Oct 13, but a prominent member of the Swedish Academy that awards the prize complained a week later that he had not responded to repeated phone calls. "It's hard to believe", says Dylan. But he reiterated his delight at being awarded the prestigious prize, saying: "Whoever dreams about something like that?"
Swedish writer Per Wastberg accused Dylan of being "impolite and arrogant", and said it was "unprecedented" that the academy did not know if Dylan meant to pick up his award.
The Nobel Foundation has, in fact, got in touch with the "Positively 4th Street" hitmaker.
