Staff Reviews

After all the controversy of Dylan’s Nobel win, the man delivers his speech about his art and inspirations from Buddy Holly to Moby Dick and back again. After you get the book I would also urge you to visit the official site and search "Dylan Nobel Lecture" to hear the bard read the words aloud along with you in that distinctive Dylan cadence.

— Daniel


Published for the first time in a beautiful collectible edition, the essential lecture delivered by the 2016 recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature, Bob Dylan.

On October 13, 2016, Bob Dylan was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, recognizing his countless contributions to music and letters over the last fifty years. Some months later, he delivered an acceptance lecture that is now memorialized in book form for generations to come. In The Nobel Lecture, Dylan reflects on his life and experience with literature, providing both a rare artistic statement and an intimate look at a uniquely American icon. From finding inspiration in the music of Buddy Holly and Leadbelly to the works of literature that helped shape his own approach to writing--The Odyssey, Moby-Dick, and All Quiet on the Western Front--this is Dylan like you've never seen him before.
