Have you heard?!
Bob Dylan has won a Special Citation "for his profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power."
From the Associated Press: "This is the first time the Pulitzer judges, who have long favored classical music, and more recently, jazz, awarded an art form once dismissed as barbaric, even subversive."
Yes yes yes!! The times are finally changin’ . . .
This SO totally makes National Poetry Month for me!
