If I remember correctly, it was the poet Allen Ginsberg who started the movement to get Bob Dylan awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. Ginsberg worked on several academics to nominate Dylan, and apparently he succeeded, for Dylan has been nominated several times already. I read today that there’s a growing movement in Europe to give Dylan the prize this year. Some Danish professor came out and said that she’d officially nominated him and that others had done so as well. I would like to add my own small voice to this issue and plead with the Swedish Academy: Don’t do it. Please resist the pressure. Don’t do it.
