Bob Dylan Gets a Pulitzer

Almost. He got a Special Citation. The Pulitzer Prize in music went to David Lang for “The Little Match Girl Passion,” but Bob Dylan won a Special Citation “for his profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power.”

Was the citation for his Cadillac commercial or his Victoria's Secret commercial?

Dylan's Visions of Johanna is quite possibly my favorite song, at least from a lyrical standpoint. i found out later down the line that he borrowed several lines from William Blake, which actually increased my appreciation of it. as Picasso once said, "bad artists imitate. great artists steal."
