Pulitzer Prize 2008: Special Citation to Bob Dylan

Posted on 04/08/2008

For his "profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power" Bob Dylan received a Special Citation at the Pulitzer Prizes 2008 on Monday. It was the first time the Pulitzer Prize Board awarded an art form once dismissed as subversive. So the times have changed again and Rock ’n Roll has finally broken through the Pulitzer wall to join the exclusive club of icons in literature, journalism, classic music, and jazz. Congratulations, you got a good deal!
