Bob Dylan's Nobel Prize in Literature is 'Vindication' for W&L's Gordon Ball

Gordon Ball, visiting associate professor of English at Washington and Lee, says Bob Dylan’s Nobel recognition is “vindication” after Ball nominated the singer-songwriter for the award 15 years in a row.

“There’s an enormous, almost a kind of unbelievability, that it finally happened,” Ball said in an interview with the Associated Press in their story, “The Latest: Writers Welcome  Nobel for Bob Dylan.”

Ball has also been featured on WDBJ, High Snobiety, WKOK News Radio, and his essay, “I nominated Bob Dylan for the Nobel Prize more than a dozen times,” appeared in The Washington Post.
