The Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm will announce on Thursday (1 p.m.) who will receive the Nobel Prize for Literature this year.
In view of the Ukraine war, some observers expect that the literary prize could be linked to a political message.
The Russian Kremlin critic Lyudmila Ulitzkaja had already been traded as a candidate in recent years – according to literary critics, she could actually get the prize this time.
The US novelist Joyce Carol Oates, the Canadian Margaret Atwood and the Japanese Haruki Murakami are also traded as possible winners, as well as the French Michel Houellebecq and Annie Ernaux.
In the past two years, two lesser-known authors in this country, the US poet Louise Glück and the Tanzanian writer Abdulrazak Gurnah, have been put in the limelight. (AFP)
