2008: first Pullitzer Prize to a rock poet

How does it feel?

This year's Pulitzer Prizes included a special citation to singer-songwriter Bob Dylan.

Dylan said he was "in disbelief."

He was cited for "his profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power." His award marks the first Pulitzer given to a rock musician. (info from The Los Angeles Times, photo from art.com)
