Austrian Poet wins Nobel Literature Prize

Published torsdag 7 oktober 2004 kl 13.11

The Austrian novelist and poet Elfriede Jelinek has won the coveted Nobel Prize in Literature.

The Swedish Academy cited the 57 year old’s musical flow of voices and counter-voices in novels and plays.

The decision to award the prize to a woman, and a poet, was the first since 1996, when Polish poet Wislawa Szymborska won.

Since the prize was handed out in 1901, only nine women have won it.
