On Monday, Sara Danius, permanent secretary of the Nobel Committee for Literature at the Swedish Academy, publicly announced during a radio program on Sveriges Radio in Sweden the committee, unable to reach Bob Dylan directly about winning the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature, had abandoned its efforts to reach him.

Danius said, "Right now we are doing nothing. I have called and sent emails to his closest collaborator and received very friendly replies. For now, that is certainly enough."((sv))

Numerous news outlets reported Dylan remained silent about the prize at recent concerts in the United States, but several speculated the artist was offering a response by renditions of certain songs, such as "Like a Rolling Stone" and "Why Try to Change Me Now."

Regardless of the singer/songwriter's reticence about the prize, Danius stated, "if he doesn't want to come, he won't come. It will be a big party in any case and the honour belongs to him."((sv))

On Tuesday, BBC News reported the Nobel award was recognized in a post on Dylan's official Facebook page.
