Nobel Prize 2022

Nobel Prize logo

Alfred Nobel had broad cultural interests. During his early youth, he developed his literary interests which lasted throughout his life. His library consisted of a rich and broad selection of literature in different languages. During the last years of his life, he tried his hand as an author and began writing fiction. Literature was the fourth prize area Nobel mentioned in his will.

 

Annie Ernaux is recognized for the courage and clinical acuity with which she uncovers the roots, estrangements and collective restraints of personal memory by the Nobel Foundation for the 2022 prize in Literature.
