    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/14/arts/music/bob-dylan-nobel-prize-literature.html?_r=0...Mr. Dylan, the poet laureate of the rock era, has been rewarded with the Nobel Prize in Literature, an honor that elevates him into the company of T. S. Eliot, Gabriel García Márquez, Toni Morrison and Samuel Beckett.

    Mr. Dylan, 75, is the first musician to win the award, and his selection on Thursday is perhaps the most radical choice in a history stretching back to 1901...

    I'll bow to no man on my love for (and knowledge of) poetry, for a "non" poet, and I adore Eliot, García Márquez, Morrison, and Beckett. But I think you mean this now elevates them into the company of one of our (American) greatest lyric poets.... ever. icon_biggrin.gif
