Bob Dylan’s Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech

The singer-songwriter recorded an obligatory speech earlier this month, or else he wouldn’t get the prize or the cash.  Complete with some strange background soft piano, the talk offers some insights into his influences and his thoughts about music versus literature.

Spoiler alert if you listen in: he discusses the books Moby Dick and All Quiet On The Western Front at some length.

The New York Times also has a summary of the speech.
