        Sara Danius, a literary scholar and the permanent secretary of
        the 18-member Swedish Academy, which awards the prize, called
        Mr. Dylan "a great poet in the English-speaking tradition" and
        compared him to Homer and Sappho, whose work was delivered
        orally. Asked if the decision to award the prize to a musician
        signaled a broadening in the definition of literature, Ms.
        Danius jokingly responded, "The times they are a changing,
        perhaps," referencing one of Mr. Dylan's songs.

The correct term is "Internet" NOT "internet" -- please don't 
fall into the trap of using the latter. It's just plain wrong!
