  • The Academy’s permanent secretary, Mats Malm, said he spoke with Professor Gluck just before making the public announcement.

“The message was a surprise, but a welcome message that I know of,”

Malm told reporters.
  • Professor Gluck was not considered a Nobel laureate before Thursday’s announcement, although the odds of gambling sites plummeted just before Thursday’s announcement.

  • “The voices of Dido, Persephone and Eurydice – the abandoned, the punished, the betrayed – are masks of a transforming self, as personal as it is valid throughout the world.”
  • Her collections “The Triumph of Achilles” (1985) and “Ararat” (1990) address “almost brutally direct images of painful family relationships,” the jury said, noting that his use of a “deceptively natural tone is surprising.” “trace of poetic adornment”.
  • Professor Gluck is also a poet of radical change and rebirth, and describes in her poem “Snowdrops” the miraculous return of life after winter, her work often marked by “humor and scathing wit.”

concluded the Academy.

Ceremony canceled

  • Last year, the Swedish Academy winked at Austrian novelist Peter Handke, prompting a flurry of criticism as many wondered how it could reward a writer known for supporting Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic in the Balkan wars and minimizing the atrocities of her army.
