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 ...

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.

Just found out Doris Lessing died today in her sleep. When she received her Nobel Prize (at 88 the oldest recipient and one of very few women) the Swedish Academy called her "that epicist of the female experience, who with scepticism, fire and visionary power has subjected a divided civilisation to scrutiny".

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. Syrian poet, essayist and translator Ali Ahmad Said Esber (who goes by the pen name of Adonis) has been touted as the frontrunner during four o . ...

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 ...

To be a Greek and a part of its twenty-five-century-old literary tradition was to Elytis a matter of great pride. His words, upon acceptance of the Nobel Prize, gave evidence of this deep regard for his people and country: "I would like to believe that with this year's decision, the Swedish Academy wants to honor in me Greek poetry in its entirety. 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!
