The 2020 Nobel Prize in Literature has been awarded to the American poet Louis Klook, for which the Swedish Academy “makes global presence unique with difficult beauty” is his vague poetic voice.

Glck is the 16th woman to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, and she already holds the Heavyweight Prize worthy of the bookshelf: her collection for the 1992 National Book Award, a National Humanitarian Medal, and the Pulitzer Prize. The Wild Iris.

He published his first collection of poems, The first child In 1968; He is currently a writer at Yale University and is the recipient of the 12th Poet Prize of the United States.

In a statement, Nobel Committee Chairman Anders Olson said that he admired Kluke’s “work for clarity”, but although Kluke would never deny the importance of the autobiographical background, he should not be considered a confessor. Glck seeks universality, in which he draws inspiration from mythology and classical themes, which is present in most of his works. “
