From NPR –
"Two months and change after he accepted his Nobel Prize for Literature in a small ceremony in Stockholm, Bob Dylan has delivered his Nobel Lecture, required of all laureates in order to finalize the award. 'Now that the lecture has been delivered and made public, the Dylan adventure is coming to a close,' writes Sara Danius, permanent secretary for the Swedish Academy, in a blog post.
"The lecture, 26-and-a-half minutes long, finds Dylan contemplating the literary roots of his work and the nature of it, and of song, more elementally. 'When I received the Noel Prize for Literature, I got to wondering exactly how my songs related to literature,' opens Dylan. 'I wanted to reflect on it and see where the connection was. I'm gonna try and articulate it to you — and most likely it will go in a roundabout way.'"
It's hard not to laugh with, “…and most likely it will go in a roundabout way.”
