The Nobel Prize in Literature 2019
The Nobel Prize in Literature 2019 was awarded to Peter Handke
"for an influential work that with linguistic ingenuity has explored the periphery
and the specificity of human experience."

The choice of the Austrian playwright and novelist with Slovenian roots has been received with mixed feelings. Media and critics have been discussing the controversy due to the author’s debatable political statements, as for instance on the war in former Yugoslavia.

The committee’s decision in Oslo presents Handke as one of the most important writers of contemporary literature ever since he published his first book in 1966.

Peter Handke’s works have been on the core list of HARRASSOWITZ’ Belles Lettres Program since it was introduced in 1994. Please click here for a full list:
