Oh, All Right: Dylan To Collect Nobel

Bob Dylan has finally agreed to accept his Nobel literature prize, the Swedish academy in Stockholm has announced, having turned down his invitation to the original ceremony in December. “The good news is that the Swedish Academy and Bob Dylan have decided to meet this weekend,” Sara Danius, permanent secretary of the academy, wrote in a blog post. “The academy will then hand over Dylan’s Nobel diploma and the Nobel medal, and congratulate him on the Nobel prize in literature. “The setting will be small and intimate, and no media will be present; only Bob Dylan and members of the academy will attend, all according to Dylan’s wishes.” Dylan is set to perform two concerts in Stockholm, on Saturday and Sunday. Danius didn’t specify if the meeting would be held before or after the concerts.
