By Alistair Scrutton and Scott Malone | STOCKHOLM/BOSTON STOCKHOLM/BOSTON Bob Dylan, regarded as the voice of a generation for his songs from the 1960s onward, has won the Nobel Prize for Literature in a surprise decision that made him the only singer-songwriter to win the award.The 75-year-old Dylan, who won the prize for "having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition," finds himself in the company of Winston Churchill, Thomas Mann and Rudyard Kipling as Nobel literature laureates.Awarding the 8 million Swedish crown ($928,000) prize, the Swedish Academy said: "Dylan has the status of an icon. His influence on contemporary music is profound." The announcement was met with gasps in Stockholm's stately Royal Academy hall, followed by some laughter.Dylan's songs, such as "Blowin' in the Wind", "The Times They Are a-Changin'", "Subterranean Homesick Blues" and "Like a Rolling Stone" captured the spirit of a generation's rebellion, dissent and independence. More than 50 years later, Dylan is still writing songs and almost continuously on tour, performing his lyrics in a sometimes rasping voice that has been ridiculed by detractors.For many, his lyrics have resonated for decades."Blowin' in the Wind", written in 1962, was considered one of the most eloquent folk songs of all time.
