Bob Dylan accepts Nobel Prize, says it left him 'speechless'

Bob Dylan accepts Nobel Prize, says it left him speechless

Stolkholm/New York: American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan has finally acknowledged his Nobel Prize in Literature and says he accepts it, media reports said.

According to a statement by the Nobel Foundation, Dylan had called Sara Danius, Permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy and accepted the award.

"The news about the Nobel Prize left me speechless. I appreciate the honour so much," BBC news quoted Dylan as saying.

The foundation said that it was up to him whether to attend the prize-giving ceremony later this year or not.

The notoriously media-shy Dylan had not made any comment, despite repeated attempts by the Swedish Academy.

"We have stopped trying -- we said everything we needed to his manager and friend ... but we haven't heard anything back," the Swedish Academy administrative director Odd Zschiedrich said on Tuesday.

On October 13, 2016 Dylan was announced the winner of the prize for "having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition".
