Nobel academy member says Bob Dylan's silence is 'impolite and arrogant'


 A member of the Swedish Academy that awarded the 2016 Nobel Prize in literature to Bob Dylan says the American singer-songwriter's silence since receiving the honor is 'impolite and arrogant.'

Per Wastberg said Dylan's lack of reaction to the honor the academy bestowed on him last week was predictable, but disrespectful nonetheless.

'One can say that it is impolite and arrogant. He is who he is,' Wastberg was quoted as saying in Saturday's edition of the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter.

Wastberg said the academy still hopes to communicate with the 75-year-old artist, whose Nobel credits him with creating 'new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition'.

'We have agreed not to lift a finger. The ball lies entirely on his half,' Wastberg told the newspaper.

'You can speculate as much as you want but we don't.' He was not immediately available for comments.

The academy said it has failed to reach the tight-lipped laureate since he became the first musician in the Nobel's 115-year history to win the prize in literature.
