nobel-prize

STOCKHOLM: In an interesting move, the Swedish Academy has announced two Nobel Prizes for literature on Thursday. While Polish writer Olga Tokarczuk was awarded the prize for the year 2018, Austrian author Peter Handke was handed over the prize for this year.

Handke won the 2019 prize for “for an influential work that with linguistic ingenuity has explored the periphery and the specificity of human experience,” the Academy said in a statement.

The 2018 prize, delayed by one year after a sexual assault scandal rocked the award-giving Academy, went to Tokarczuk for “for a narrative imagination that with encyclopedic passion represents the crossing of boundaries as a form of life.”
