In Reply to: RE: Bob Dylan Nobel Prize in Literature Lecture ... something unexpected/something incredible, posted by bjh on June 05, 2017 at 22:04:47
is like giving Barack Obama a Nobel Peace Prize - it's laugh-out-loud
funny, indicates just low the IQ of the Noble Prize Committee is, and
reduces the perceived value of said prizes to near zero.
Dylan is a song-writter (pretty good one at that), not a poet or writer
of great literature, and Obama certainly did nothing to promote world
I really enjoyed it. I had no idea I would be treated to more, akin to finding important hitherto unknown Beatles tracks, a pile of Cole Porter songs, important stuff.
The surprise, shock actually, was the soaking naked autobiographical quality. I didn't see that coming.
The delivery was powerful, passionate, the performance artist inspired, hence at very best.
As for your analogy, the former (chronologically) is an anathema (hardly the first), the latter mere joke ... big difference.
