Interesting facts about the Nobel Prize in Literature (infographic)
In the new infographic, you’ll find facts and figures about the most respected international literary prize.
The Nobel Prize in Literature was established in 1901. Every year the award goes to the author who in the field of literature has produced “the most outstanding work in an ideal direction.”
According to the infographic from Topaussiewriters, throughout over 100 years of the Nobel Prize, only 12% of awarded authors were women.
The infographic includes also other interesting figures, as well as fun facts. For instance, the average age of a Nobel Prize laureate is 65. The youngest winner, Rudyard Kipling, was 42, when he received the prize in 1907.
There is also a split by genre. 77% of awards come to authors who write prose, with only 2% for those who write history books.
And the last thing. Do you know which country the biggest number of Nobel Prize winners come from? It’s France, and there are 15 French writers among all 114 laureates of the Nobel Prize in Literature.
