Great celebrations in this household - well, my side of it, that is - over Dylan winning the Nobel Prize for Literature. Already read quite a bit of outrage on various sites. All to the good, I reckon. Making people seriously confront questions of value in art can only be to the good, and the fact that there's going to be a lot of consideration of what might seriously be regarded as Literature is useful in itself.
I'm feeling rather pleased with myself for featuring the Bobster so prominently in my talk at the Lit Seminar back in August. Wonder if some of the folks who attended now think I might have had some insider knowledge on this one.
