Dylan will receive his Nobel Prize while on tour in Sweden
After months of suspense and typically inscrutable standoff- ishness, Bob Dylan, the elusive Nobel laureate, will finally accept his literature prize at a meet- ing with members of the Swedish Academy in Stockholm this weekend.
Sara Danius, the Swedish Acad- emy’s permanent secretary, broke the news Wednesday in a blog post titled “Good News About Dylan,” and a spokeswoman for the Academy confirmed it.
Danius wrote that Dylan — who greeted news of the prize last fall with two weeks of silence and skipped the December ceremony
because of “pre-existing commitments” — would meet with members of the Academy while in town to play two concerts at the Stockholm Waterfront.
