Adam Kirsch recently editorialized in The New York Times that Bob Dylan’s silence in response to his winning of the Nobel Prize for Literature is, philosophically speaking, the correct moral stance. I haven’t decided yet whether I agree or disagree with Kirsch. My personal feelings about both Dylan and his selection are a bit complicated. While I like a lot of Dylan’s stuff, I thought the Nobel Committee was being ludicrous when they picked him. But regardless of whether he should have been chosen, at least a small part of me is a bit gleeful at the way the songwriter has been utterly ignoring them. I’ve long thought that the committee was largely composed of a bunch of snobbish morons far more interested in making political statements than in judging actual literary merit.
Anyway, here’s one of my favorite Dylan tunes, “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door”, written for the 1973 film Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.
