At least when I try to tell people what a great poet he is, they wont reply "come on, he's good but he's just a songwriter" now.

I just entered this thread in order to post a note about it. I shed a tear of delight.

For cases like this the Academy Award committee awards an HONORARY Award, usually for the life work of someone. The Nobel commitee should consider a honorary Nobel Award.
If there was one, Boby Dylan would have been a good choice for his life work in the field of poetry.

There isn't one, though.

Although I admit I don't know what exactly qualifies, I think, the prize is awarded for a certain "work" - which in the case of literature would be a specific book - or, in Dylan's case, a specific record...

That, however, would seem like a second (or in fact a fiftiehth) thought, so many years after the fact of Blönde on Blonde which you might pick as the prize-worthy work.

However, I don't know whether the committee should honor people they think should have gotten the price some dozen years ago - there is only one per year.

A Nobel Prize in literature is already a life-time achievement award. You don't get it for a specific work.

Right. I should have known it from the Böll and Grass awards. And the Golding, probably.

I've read enough around here to know many folks are tired of LotRs
but this is some pretty awesome artwork and it has some good tunes from the soundtracks in the background.

This guy is one heck of a fantasy artist.
