Bob Dylan Finally Accepts Nobel Prize; See Him In Syracuse In June

Music News

Bob Dylan finally accepted his Nobel Prize for Literature in a private ceremony in Stockholm, Sweden prior to his concert in the city this weekend, according to The Guardian. Sara Danius, the academy’s permanent secretary, posted in a blog, that 12 academy members were present and that “Spirits were high. Champagne was had. Quite a bit of time was spent looking closely at the gold medal, in particular the beautifully crafted back, an image of a young man sitting under a laurel tree who listens to the Muse. Taken from Virgil’s Aeneid, the inscription reads: ‘Inventas vitam iuvat excoluisse per artes,’ loosely translated as ‘And they who bettered life on earth by their newly found mastery.'”

Dylan raised eyebrows back in December, when he did not attend the ceremony to officially accept the award. As is the custom, the winner is given $900,000 prize money, but if Dylan does not deliver his Nobel lecture, he will have to forfeit the money. Dylan is expected to deliver a taped version of the lecture some time soon.

Bob Dylan performs tomorrow night (April 4th) in Oslo, Norway.
