American singer and songwriter Bob Dylan has recently won the 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature.
About Bob Dylan:
is an American songwriter, singer, artist and writer. He has been influential in popular music and culture for more than five decades. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s when his songs chronicled social unrest, although he repudiated suggestions from journalists that he was a spokesman for his generation. His early songs such as ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’ and ‘The Times They Are a-Changin’ became anthems for the American civil rights and anti-war movements.
His lyrics have incorporated various political, social, philosophical and literary influences.
His accomplishments as a recording artist and performer have been central to his career, but songwriting is considered his greatest contribution.
