  1. I haven't read/listened to enough later Dylan to judge his suitability, but even if I didn't agree with the choice, why is criticism so often labelled jealousy?

    The whole thing strikes me as something rather more amusing than a straightforward prize decision. Anyone remember what Horace Engledahl, the permanent secretary of the Nobel prize jury, said a few years back? "The US is too isolated, too insular. They don't translate enough and don't really participate in the big dialogue of literature. That ignorance is restraining."
