Bob Dylan is being pretty quiet about winning the 2016 Nobel prize in Literature.  The first musician ever.  Are lyrics poetry?  Is Dylan Nobel prize material?  That's up to you.  Meanwhile, his silence in the matter has struck some as ill-mannered.   I mean it is an honor.   Though he doesn't speak officially for the Swedish Academy, academy member Dagens Nyheter, said, 'One can say that it is impolite and arrogant.'
