Bob Dylan Will Not Travel to Sweden to Receive His Nobel Prize, Academy Confirms
It’s official: Bob Dylan will not be traveling to Sweden to accept his Nobel Prize for Literature.

The Swedish Academy confirmed Dylan’s non-attendance to the press Wednesday, noting that they had received a letter from the enigmatic musical icon saying he was unable to attend the December ceremony “due to pre-existing commitments.” Softening the blow, however, he wrote that he felt “very honored” and expressed his wishes to receive the prize personally.

Dylan, 75, is hardly the first Nobel Prize recipient to not attend his awards ceremony. Harold Pinter and Doris Lessing are among the other luminaries who declined the trip to Sweden.
