Nobel Prize in Literature

The Nobel Prize in Literature was established in 1901 by the Swedish chemist, Albert Nobel. It is given annually for the most outstanding work in the field of literature. Only works that have appeared in print are considered. Usually an author is selected for his or her complete body of works rather than for one book.
