Dylan snubs Nobel, Santos to accept Peace Prize in Oslo

AFP

AFP, STOCKHOLM: One sings of peace, the other makes peace: Bob Dylan will not travel to Stockholm on Saturday to accept his Nobel prize, but Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos will receive his award in Oslo for a deal signed with FARC rebels.
In Stockholm, where the prizes for literature, medicine, physics, chemistry and econo- mics are traditionally awarded on December 10th, the formal ceremony will be marked by Dylan’s no-show, as the first songwriter to win the literary accolade has declined due to “pre-existing” commitments.
Since being awarded the prestigious prize on October 14, the music icon has been a somewhat reluctant recipient, refusing to acknowledge it publicly for several weeks.
Amid the silence, a member of the Swedish Academy, which awards the prize, accused Dylan of being “impolite and arrogant”. The rock legend finally broke his silence in a newspaper interview two weeks later, calling it “amazing” and saying he would “absolutely” attend the December 10th ceremony, “if at all possible.”
