The Swedish Academy in Stockholm, Sweden.
9 January, 2018
All information concerning the nominations and selections of the Nobel Laureates is kept secret for 50 years.
The Swedish Academy has recently revealed the nominations for the 1967 Nobel Prize in Literature.
The other new candidates were Jorge Amado, Carlos Drummond de Andrade, Emil Boyson, Arturo Capdevila, Rabbe Enckell, Hans Magnus Enzensberger, Jean Genet, Lawrence Sargent Hall, Friedrich Georg Jünger, Basij Khalkhali, Georg Lukács, Germán Pardo García, André Pézard, Pavlo Tychyna, Ivan Drach and Lina Kostenko.
The members of the Nobel Committee for Literature disagreed - the chairman suggested Graham Greene (never awarded) and the others suggested a shared Prize to Miguel Angel Asturias and Jorge Luis Borges. In the end, the 1967 Nobel Prize was awarded to Asturias "for his vivid literary achievement, deep-rooted in the national traits and traditions of Indian peoples of Latin America".
