The Nobel Prize in Literature 2023

Jon Fosse will receive the Nobel from King Carl XVI Gustaf at a formal ceremony in Stockholm on December 10, the anniversary of the 1896 death of scientist Alfred Nobel.

Jon Fosse was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature 2023 for his innovative plays and prose which give voice to the unsayable. He has written a wide range of literary works in Norwegian Nynorsk, including plays, novels, poetry, essays, children’s books, and translations. His creations are celebrated worldwide, especially his plays, and he’s also gaining recognition for his prose.

His major works include “Boathouse” (1989), which was well-received by critics, and “Melancholy” I and II (1995-1996). 64 years Fosse had contained widely in Nobel conjecture for several years. One of his country’s most-performed authors, Fosse, has written some 40 plays, novels, short stories, children’s books, poetry, and essays.

According to Anders Olsson, the chairman of the Nobel Literature Committee, Fosse’s work is deep-rooted in the language and nature of his Norwegian background.

The Nobel Prizes move a cash award of 11 million Swedish kronor ($1 million) from a legacy left by their inventor, Swedish inventor Alfred Nobel. Winners also receive an 18-carat gold medal and diploma at the award ceremonies in December.
