Nobel Prize Literature laureate Bob Dylan finally acknowledges his award

Dylan could provide anything like a short speech, a performance, a video broadcast - or even a song, the permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy, Dr Sara Danius, told the public Swedish Radio. 'I appreciate the honour so much'.

A couple of weeks ago, Dylan was announced the victor of "Nobel Prize for Literature" for having "created new poetic expressions with the great American tradition".

While Dylan became the first singer-songwriter to be awarded the literature prize, he had remained tight lipped about it until now.

Separately, Dylan told British daily the Telegraph in an interview that he will be at Nobel Prize ceremony, if he can. "It's hard to believe. amazing, incredible. The news about the Nobel prize left me speechless".

The singer-songwriter, born Robert Allen Zimmerman, launched his music career in 1959 by performing in coffeehouses in the Midwestern state of Minnesota. He has been the first musician to win Nobel Prize.

"Absolutely", Dylan said. "If it's at all possible".

He added: "Whoever dreams about something like that?" Dylan told The Telegraph in his first interview since the Swedish Academy announced the honor on October 13.

French Philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre was the only person who famously refused the award in 1964.

His initial silence was denounced as rude and arrogant, but what is the etiquette for accepting a Nobel prize?

But after the long wait, Dylan finally hit upon the ideal answer on Friday: he accepts.

Dylan has accepted many awards through the years, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, for which he attended a White House ceremony in 2012.

The Nobel Foundation has, in fact, got in touch with the "Positively 4th Street" hitmaker.
