Karel Čapek (1890-1938), Czech playwright, novelist and short story writer, is recognized for his intelligent humour and exceptional imagination. He’s probably best known for his futuristic play R.U.R (Rossum’s Universal Robots), where he was the first one to use the word ROBOT, invented by his brother Joseph Čapek (poet and cartoonist), as well as for his anti-fascist novel “The War with the Newts”. He was even nominated for the Nobel Prize for the anti-war messages included in his plays. Unfortunately, it was during the Nazi Germany and the Swedish Academy was too afraid to give it to Čapek. The Last Judgment is just one of the brilliant short detective stories from a hilarious work called “Stories from a Pocket and Stories from Another Pocket”. The story only seems to be pretty straightforward, it’s written with a clever humour with a rather sophisticated message. The Last Judgment by Karel Čapek The notorious multiple-killer Kugler, pursued by several warrants and a whole army of pol ...
aka Karen von Blixen-Finecke; aka Isak Dinesen; aka Tania Blixen, aka Osceola; aka Pierre Andrézel Karen von Blixen-Finecke (1885 - 1962), née Karen Christenze Dinesen, was a Danish author also known by her pen name Isak Dinesen. She also wrote under the pen names Tania Blixen, Osceola and Pierre Andrézel. Blixen wrote works in Danish, French and English. Blixen is best known for Out of Africa, her account of living in Kenya, and one of her stories, Babette's Feast, both of which have been adapted into highly acclaimed, Academy Award-winning motion pictures. Prior to the release of the first film, she was noted for her Seven Gothic Tales, for which she is also known in Denmark. Peter Englund, Permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy, described it as "a mistake" that Blixen was not awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature during the 1930s. Although never awarded the prize, she finished in third place behind Graham Greene in 1961, the year Ivo Andrić was awarded the prize. Karen Dinesen was born on 17 Ap ...

OPERA SINGERS FROM THE PAST - JENNY LIND Johanna Maria Lind (6 October 1820 – 2 November 1887), better known as Jenny Lind, was a Swedish opera singer, often known as the "Swedish Nightingale". One of the most highly regarded singers of the 19th century, she performed in soprano roles in opera in Sweden and across Europe, and undertook an extraordinarily popular concert tour of America beginning in 1850. She was a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music from 1840. Lind became famous after her performance in Der Freischütz in Sweden in 1838. Within a few years, she had suffered vocal damage, but the singing teacher Manuel García saved her voice. She was in great demand in opera roles throughout Sweden and northern Europe during the 1840s, becoming the protégée of Felix Mendelssohn. After two acclaimed seasons in London, she announced her retirement from opera at the age of 29. In 1850, Lind went to America at the invitation of the showman P. T. Barnum. She gave 93 large-scale concerts for him an ...

Anders Zorn was still an art student when he painted this watercolor of a veiled acquaintance posed as if in mourning. The work garnered rave reviews when it first appeared in the annual student exhibition at the Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts in 1880. Sweden’s King Oscar II was among its admirers, and he subsequently commissioned a full-length version for his own collection, launching Zorn’s career in earnest.

Hanna Pauli (1864 –1940) was a Swedish painter. She studied at the painting school of August Malmström, and the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts in Stockholm. Hanna studied in Paris from 1885 until 1887. The portrait is realistic and unconventional for its time in portraying a female artist at work (sitting on the floor with clay in her hands) rather than in proper bourgeois attire.
Henrietta Swan Leavitt (186-1921) was employed as a "computer" at the Harvard College Observatory. "Computers" were women brought in to catalogue the brightness of stars recorded on photographic plates; women were not allowed to use the observatory telescopes at the time. Leavitt's discovery of how to determine the distance to faraway stars revolutionized the field. Paperwork was actually underway in the Royal Swedish Academy to nominate Leavitt for a Nobel Prize in 1924 when it was learned that she had died of cancer three years earlier.
Swedish Academy formal gathering at Stock Exchange in Stockholm
In 1983 the U.S. Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences awarded a rare slew of eight Oscars to Sir Richard Attenborough's film Gandhi. Disgruntled supporters of the competition, which included Steven Spielberg's blockbuster E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, sourly remarked that the Academy was supposed to be rewarding cinematic excellence, not handing out the Nobel Peace Prize. But Gandhi, of course, had never won the Nobel Peace Prize (a distinction the Swedish Academy has since conferred on a series of self-proclaimed Gandhians, from Martin Luther King Jr. to Adolfo Perez Esquivel). His prize had been something less tangible. Publicity posters for the film proclaimed that "Gandhi's triumph changed the world forever." I saw the posters, enjoyed the film (despite its many historical inaccuracies), and rooted for it when the Oscars were handed out. But I never stopped wondering whether Gandhi had in fact triumphed at all.

News Updates: Nobel in Literature: Could This Be Haruki Murakami’s Year?: Today the Swedish Academy will announce the recipient of the world’s most prestigious literary award, the coveted Nobel Prize in Literature. Although the winner is notoriously difficult to predict, bookies and bloggers inevitably weigh in with their own odds every year, leading up to the October announcement. But in the end it’s anyone’s guess. Vague trends seem to have emerged over the years, but in the end trying to guess who will be chosen is closer to divination than science. As New Republic notes, even with the use of complex numerical analysis of factors like industry gossip, an author’s nationality, and historical precedent, from 2004 to 2012 bookies’ predictions matched reality only once, when Turkish man of letters Orhan Pamuk was tapped by the Swedish Academy in 2006.

Ernest Hemingway : Overview Author : Stewart F. Sanderson Source : Reference guide to American Literature Literature Resource Center When Ernest Hemingway was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, the Swedish Academy commented on the central themes of his work. Courage and compassion in a world of violence and death were seen as the distinguishing marks of "one of the great writers of our time ... who, honestly and undauntedly, reproduces the genuine features of the hard countenance of the age." These comments sum up perceptively the characteristic preoccupations of Hemingway's fiction and of the heroic code of behavior that it explores. But they do less than justice to another aspect of his writing. Hemingway was also a deliberate and careful artist, for whom every book was, in his own words, "a new beginning" in which the writer "should always try for something that has never been done." Hemingway started his working life as a newspaper reporter, an excellent training in writing graphic declaratory pr ...
Award Ceremony Speech Presentation Speech by Per Hallström, Permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy, on December 10, 1933 Ivan Bunin's literary career has been clear and uncomplicated. He came from a family of country squires and grew up in the literary tradition of the times in which that social class dominated Russian culture, created a literature occupying a place of honour in contemporary Europe, and led to fatal political movements. «The lords of the scrupulous consciences» is what the following generation ironically called these men who, full of indignation and pity, set themselves up against the humiliation of the serfs. They deserved a better name, for they would soon have to pay with their own prosperity for the upheaval that they were going to cause. Only the debris of the family possessions remained about the young Bunin; it was in the world of poetry that he could feel a strong rapport with the past generations. He lived in a world of illusions without any energy, rather than of national ...
From the 17th century Armenians became increasingly involved in the affairs of the Swedish kingdom and international diplomacy as interpreters and diplomats. The minister and diplomat at the Swedish Legation in Constantinople, Baron Ignatius Mouradgea (1740-1807) was especially famous. His son Abraham, academician, had a versatile career, including a position as laboratory assistant to the internationally known scientist Jacob Berzelius. Abraham Mouradgea d'Ohsson became a member of the Swedish Academy in 1823 and of the Science Society in Uppsala from 1828. Equally famous was Jean d’Anastasi, a merchant from Damascus, who later became the General Consul of Sweden and Norway in Alexandria and Cairo.

Collected Fictions [Paperback] by Amazon.com Although Jorge Luis Borges published his first book in 1923--doling out his own money for a limited edition of Fervor de Buenos Aires--he remained in Argentinian obscurity for almost three decades. In 1951, however, Ficciones appeared in French, followed soon after by an English translation. This collection, which included the cream of the author's short fictions, made it clear that Borges was a world-class (if highly unclassifiable) artist--a brilliant, lyrical miniaturist, who could pose the great questions of existence on the head of pin. And by 1961, when he shared the French Prix Formentor with Samuel Beckett, he seemed suddenly to tower over a half-dozen literary cultures, the very exemplar of modernism with a human face. By the time of his death in 1986, Borges had been granted old master status by almost everybody (except, alas, the gentlemen of the Swedish Academy). Yet his work remained dispersed among a half-dozen different collections, some of the . ...

Mushfique Ahmed A prize for literature or political reality? November 15, 2012 This year’s Nobel Award in Literature, no doubt, points to a shift for the Swedish Academy. Was it a change of heart? May be; or perhaps, they decided to go off the script for a realistic change. The Academy, which lunges at any chance to mix literature with politics, could be mischievous at times.

I would like to think it also wants to draw the attention of the world to a tradition that has gone on since the time of Homer, in the embrace of Western civilization." Respect!
