In 2021, 329 entities including both individuals and organisations have been announced as candidates for various prize categories.
The Swedish Academy is set to announce the name of the 2021 Nobel Prize Laureate in Literature.
According to the will of Alfred Nobel (1833-1896), the prize in this area should be awarded to the author of "the best literary work of an idealistic orientation". What was really meant by "idealistic work" is still a matter of controversy.
The 2020 prize was awarded to American poet Louise Gluck. The award was presented for "her unmistakably poetic voice, which, with its harsh beauty, turns individual being into universal".
