American Writer-Singer Bob Dylan Wins 2016 Nobel Prize For Literature

In what has come as a surprise decision by the Nobel Academy, the 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature has been awarded to iconic singer-songwriter Bob Dylan. His songs such as ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’, ‘Masters of War’, ‘A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall’ and ‘The Times They Are a-Changin’ have captured a spirit of rebellion, dissent and independence. ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’ and ‘The Times They Are a-Changin’ were regarded as anthems for the 1960s’ anti-war and civil rights movements.
