"Poetry is like song, or rather, poetry is song. If we say the first, we are right. If we say the second, we are also right. No wonder the Belgium committee of the Nobel Prize gave the literature prize to, of all people, Bob Dylan, in 2016. In other words, they gave it to a singer; a music composer. Which is to say that much of poetry can be sung, and much of song can be poetic."
