Winners of the
nobel prize for literature

The Nobel Prize for Literature is one of six prizes awarded annually from a fund established under the will of Alfred Bernhard Nobel (1833–1869), a Swedish chemist, engineer, and industrialist who had an abiding interest in literature. In his youth he had written poetry in English, and the beginnings of a novel were found among his papers. The Nobel Prize for literature, generally awarded to a writer for a body of work, has come to be one of the most highly regarded of international awards.
