      1. Don’t forget music ! Bob Dylon won the Nobel Prize for literature “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition,”oddly reminiscent of the Nobel Prize from 1913, when honoring the Indian poet Rabindranath Tagore Gitanjali, almost literally, as “Song Offerings” and it’s a compendium of lyrics turned by him into strange English prose poems, selected from three slim Bengali collections of songs.
