In seiner Rede anlässlich der Verleihung des Nobelpreises für Literatur gibt Bob Dylan erstmals umfassend Einblick in seine literarischen Einflüsse und die Ursprünge seines Songwritings. Woher stammen die mythologischen Anspielungen in seinen Texten, woher die manchmal fast biblischen Gleichnisse? Welche Bücher haben seine Einstellung zum Leben geprägt? Und wo hat er die speziellen Ausdrucksweisen, Jargons, Kunstgriffe und Techniken gelernt? Neben dem prägenden Einfluss von Buddy Holly sowie der Country-, Blues- und Folkmusik der späten 50er und frühen 60er Jahre mit ihrer von spezieller Mundart geprägten Lyrics fließen vielfältige literarische Motive in seine Texte ein: die biblische Symbolik in Moby Dick, die Drastik eines Kriegsromans wie Im Westen nichts Neues, aber vor allem das Motiv der Reise aus der Odyssee als universeller, menschlicher Grundverfassung. Aus diesem Bodensatz heraus schuf Bob Dylan, wie er selber sagt, Lyrics, wie sie noch niemand zuvor gehört hatte.

„Keinem vernünftigen Menschen wird es einfallen, Tintenflecken mit Tinte, Ölflecken mit Öl wegwaschen zu wollen. Nur Blut soll immer wieder mit Blut abgewaschen werden.“ „Die Waffen nieder!“ gehört zweifellos zu den wichtigsten pazifistischen Schriften des 19. Jahrhunderts und löste bereits kurz nach Erscheinen ein gewaltiges Echo aus. Der Roman schildert die packende Geschichte der Baronin Martha Althaus, die im Zuge kriegerischer Auseinandersetzungen tragische Verluste erleidet - und zur überzeugten Pazifistin wird. Die Friedensnobelpreisträgerin Bertha von Suttner protestiert mit diesem Roman gegen das sinnlose Verschwenden von Menschenleben und die menschenverachtenden Grausamkeiten im Krieg.
