Kurt Vonnegut did not care for Bob Dylan.

According to Page Six, the acclaimed Slaughterhouse-Five author dissed the acclaimed singer and recent Nobel Prize recipient in a 1991 interview with Hustler. Vonnegut called him “the worst poet alive,” and said, “He can maybe get one good line in a song, and the rest is just gibberish.” The interview will reportedly be reprinted in the December issue of Hustler.

Bob Dylan has caused a stir after he recently won the Nobel Prize in Literature, with the Swedish Academy lauding him as a “great poet.” Some authors in the literary community were not pleased that the award went to a musician rather than to a more traditional writer.
