Throughout his career, Dylan’s music and lyrics spoke to a generation of people during the tumultuous 1960s and helped galvanize the civil rights movement. The Swedish Academy’s permanent secretary, Sara Danius, said Dylan ‘created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.’ His influence continues to permeate through rock, pop and folk music today. The Nobel Committee said in a statement that Dylan had ‘recorded a large number of albums revolving around topics like the social conditions of man, religion, politics and love.
