Nobel Prize in Literature

Christchurch City Libraries lists literary prize winners and links to catalogue searches, but we may not hold copies of titles by all authors.

The Nobel Prize is an international award administered by the Nobel Foundation in Stockholm, Sweden. Every year since 1901 the Nobel Prize has been awarded for achievements in physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature and for peace. This page lists the winners of the literature category. For the other categories and for some history of the Nobel Prize, browse our Nobel Prizes page.
