DYLAN SENDS NOBEL LECTURE REQUIRED FOR PRIZE MONEY

Music icon and Nobel literature laureate Bob Dylan has delivered his Nobel lecture, the only requirement to claim the eight million kronor (819,000 euros, $923,000) that comes with the prize, the Swedish Academy said Monday.

"The speech is extraordinary and, as one might expect, eloquent. Now that the lecture has been delivered, the Dylan adventure is coming to a close," Sara Danius, the permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy, which awards the prize, wrote in a blog post.
