The decision to award the Nobel Prize in literature to Bob Dylan came as a shock to many.
Some people, including several nominees for the Nobel honour, have been openly critical of the choice.
While others, including Leonard Cohen, have supported the nobel committee’s decision.
A Queen’s English professor says it’s a sign that “the times are a changing” .
“It is an amazing thing for them to have done it, unprecedented they’ve never done anything like it, but I would just say if you’re going to give it to a song writer …picked the right one.
He’s the dominant figure and even the other contenders would say he’s the one.
Cohen is Dylan’s biggest fan, so there you go.”
