The Nobel Prize in Literature 2004

Elfriede Jelinek

The Nobel Prize in Literature for 2004 is awarded to the Austrian writer Elfriede Jelinek

"for her musical flow of voices and counter-voices in novels and plays that with extraordinary linguistic zeal reveal the absurdity of society's clichés and their subjugating power".

The Swedish Academy
