dylan's speech.


j; dylan's nobel award acceptance speech, more performance art really, has made me even more of a devotee. it's incredible, eloquent beyond words, and completely puts to rest any possible argument against his receiving the nobel prize for literature. it puts that to rest by his reading, with the piano hypnotically playing in the background, and its content. you know what i specifically mean: the influence great literature has had on his lyrics. but more than that, this speech is a testament to his literary greatness in and of itself, a tremendous bit of literature that will almost certainly, like his songs, endure the test of time. he deserves the prize for this speech alone: absolutely brilliant! thanks for sending the link. i may post my review on my blog. n. ps; the fact that dylan waited to the last possible moment to submit his lecture, and then to perform THIS, was also a piece of high art...
