Only one poem of him ever translated to portuguese (in brazil), saw some in english, but most people posted already saying "not a good translation", which kind off kick the will to like the poem. But I guess a poet is better than Bob Dylan or Umberto Eco.

Don't exaggerate, Beyonce can probably only sing about relationships. Doubt she writes anything.

i loved it, outside the box, and deserved, for a great poet, and someone who has had such a strong impact not only in american culture but worldwide too for several decades, it would only have been better if it were to L Cohen but maybe next time

My guess is that the whole "Insular" silliness is bitting their literal proverbial asses. The pressure for an american name got bigger, they must be out of marginal languages, etc.

So what they do? They pick a rock and roll writer, which is the american culture that has dialogue with most of the world and in a way, still a marginalized option (not because he is hippie but because it is poetry not novel or romances or prose).

The reaction of americans is hilarious. They are taking this as a backhand offense to Roth, Pynchon and cia.

I wish they were more daring and could give to a comic book writer, but imagine the chaos.

Anyways, let's be clear, his lyrics can be read without the musical part and they are well written. It is literature. It is however just an attempt to suck his pop appeal from the academy.

For 15 years now I've been nominating the CMs and Admins of Xtratime. And each and every year they snub me. If any of those Nobel committe schmucks ever sign up at XT, I'm going to ban them on the spot!

If "folk pop lyrics", "political autobiography" counts, then so should forum posting. It would be a nice tribute to a dying genre.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

We have kept the peace between Serbs and Croats, Greeks and Macedonians, Turks and Arabs, Finns and Russians and Argies and Brazucas!

We've done more in the name of the peace than all agencies of the UN combined. And we've achieved more! Whereas the UN still to this day refers to Macedonia as FYROM, we at XT are proud to call it Macedonia. And in return the Macedonians are not allowed to display the Star of Vergina. That's how you keep the peace. @United Nations and @Nobel Peace Prize Committee are you paying attention?!
