Obama hails Nobel winner Dylan as one of 'favorite poets'

AFP  |  Washington 

US President today congratulated Bob Dylan on what he called his "well-deserved" Nobel literature prize, calling the music legend "one of my favorite poets."

Obama's message on Twitter contained a link to a Spotify playlist of Dylan's greatest hits including "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" and "Like A Rolling Stone."



"Congratulations to one of my favorite poets, Bob Dylan, on a well-deserved Nobel," Obama tweeted -- a message retweeted nearly 3,000 times in 30 minutes.

The shock Nobel victory for the 75-year-old Dylan -- the first songwriter to take the prize -- stunned prize watchers.

He was honored "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition," the Swedish Academy said.
