It has almost been a month that Robert Allen Zimmerman better known by his stage name Bob Dylan has won this year’s Nobel Prize on Literature. The world of culture, both musical and literal has been overjoyed by the news of this great achievement. According to the academy, he was awarded “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition”.

But everything went upside down when the 75-year-old artist got vanished from the public eye right after the day of the announcement. Per Wastberg, one of the Nobel Academy member said that it was “impolite and arrogant”. The academy said it has failed to reach the tight-lipped laureate since he became the first musician in the Nobel’s 115-year history to win the prize in literature. The award was mentioned on Dylan’s official Twitter and Facebook accounts.

But a week ago, Dylan has finally broke the silence and express his gratitude over this honor.

“The news about the Nobel Prize left me speechless”, he told Sara Danius, Permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy. “I appreciate the honor so much.”

The prize giving ceremony will be held on December in Oslo, Norway.

Bob Dylan was born on May-24, 1941 in St. Mary’s Hospital in Duluth, Minnesota and raised in Hibbing, Minnesota on the Mesabi Range west of Lake Superior. He is notably worked with Joan Baez, Johnny Cash, George Harrison, and many other notable artists and bands, and also had friendship with poet Allen Ginsberg. Some of his famous songs include “Blowing in the Wind”, “Knocking on Heaven’s Door”, “Mr. Tambourine Man”, “Hurricane” etc. He is better known to the people of Bangladesh for his performance in the famous “Concert for Bangladesh.
