Nobel Prize Winners

Nobel Prize for Literature

On November 27, 1895 Alfred Nobel gave the largest share of his fortune to establish the Nobel Prizes. As described in his will, one part was dedicated to "the person who shall have produced in the field of literature the most outstanding work in an ideal direction."

The 2017 Nobel Prize for Literature was awarded to Kazuo Ishiguro.

British author Kazuo Ishiguro, behind books including Man Booker winner The Remains of the Day takes the award for his ‘novels of great emotional force’. Ishiguro was praised by the Swedish Academy for novels which “uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world” and were driven by a “great emotional force”.

The 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature was awarded to Bob Dylan.
