Now Bob Dylan now says will accept Nobel Prize in Literature

American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, who was
awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature earlier this
month, has now told the Swedish Academy that he
will accept the prize.
The notoriously media-shy Dylan had not made any comment
on the 8 million crown ($900,000) prize, despite repeated
attempts by award-givers the Swedish Academy to contact
him since it named him as the winner on Oct 13.
The Nobel Foundation said in a statement that Dylan this
week told Sara Danius, Permanent Secretary of the Swedish
Academy, that he now accepts the prize.
The committee that awarded the Nobel Prize to Dylan had
said it was up to him whether to attend the prize-giving
ceremony later this year or not.
“It has not yet been decided if Bob Dylan will attend any
events during the Nobel Week in Stockholm in December,” the
Nobel Foundation said on Friday.
“The Nobel Foundation will share information as soon as it is
available.”
Separately, Dylan told British daily the Telegraph in an
interview that he will be at Nobel Prize ceremony, if he can.
