Who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016?
In 2016, Bob Dylan became the first songwriter to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. He received the prize "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.” It took him more than two weeks to make any public comment, finally saying the honor had left him "speechless". He then snubbed the Nobel ceremony because of "pre-existing commitments". But in a speech read out on his behalf, he said he had thought his odds of winning were as likely as him "standing on the moon". The New York Times reported that his selection was "perhaps the most radical choice in a history stretching back to 1901."
