The Swedish Academy in Stockholm will reveal the literary Nobel Prize winner on Thursday.
Literary heavyweights from all over the world, such as Kenyan author Ngugi Wa Thiong’o, Japanese author Haruki Murakami, Norwegian author Jon Fosse, Jamaica Kincaid, who was born in Antigua, and French author Annie Ernaux, might win.
Abdulrazak Gurnah, a Tanzanian-born author living in the UK whose books examine the effects of migration on people and society, won the award the previous year.
With the awards to Gurnah in 2021 and US poet Louise Glück in 2020, the literature prize was able to move past years of scandal and controversy.
Monday marked the beginning of Nobel Prize announcement week, with Swedish scientist Svante Paabo winning the prize in medicine for revealing Neanderthal DNA’s hidden information that was crucial to understanding our immune system.
The physics award was shared by three experts on Tuesday. The concept of quantum entanglement, which may be used to specialised computing and information encryption, was first shown by the scientists Alain Aspect of France, John F. Clauser of the United States, and Anton Zeilinger of Austria.
