dylan wins a pulitzer!

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!

Thanks to Tricia, of The Miss Rumphius Effect, for relating the news 🙂 . . .

  1. Jama, when I read this news in the paper, I immediately thought of you!
    His lyrics book just came in at the libary for me…but now of course I’m going out of town for two weeks. Sigh. Hopefully I’ll be able to renew it when I get back.
