Scandal over the Nobel Prize on literature — this year rewardings won't be


He was postponed to 2019 because of history with harassments from the director of the Stockholm literary club "Forum" Jean-Claude Arnauld. Moreover, the rights to give the Photo award can deprive the Swedish academy in general: To Say DPA/TASS that the most prestigious literary award of the planet of 2018 has fallen a victim of the movement #MeToo, not absolutely truly. More likely, it is possible to tell that charges to Jean-Claude Arnauld became a last straw. Claims to ten members of the Swedish academy sound for a long time. Sharply this discontent began to increase after in 2016 the award has been awarded to the American singer Bob Dylan who had to be asked nearly that he behind it has arrived — scandal in fact. But, main, it suspicions of corruption and full opacity of selection of finalists. Persistent rumors about corruption went also in 2008, during winning of the award to the French prose writer Jean-Marie Leclezio, and in the 2011th when it was awarded to the Swedish poet Tumas Transtryomer. What happens to the Nobel Prize on literature — the real shock for the Russian intellectuals, the writer Victor Erofeyev considers: Victor Erofeyev is a writer "Damage, of course, huge because what each Russian intellectual trusted in, so it in the Nobel Prize, but after all over the years we have understood that often she is given for some geographical or political motives, that the radical writers unusual or geographically remote. Literature, of course, isn't determined by this principle. The best writers of the XX century after all haven't got an award. Of course, it was also farther doubtful and that happened then to corruption, it is, of course, full scandal and loss for long time of trust". It is worth explaining. As the Nobel Prize is awarded in absolutely different categories — physics, chemistry, physiology and medicine, literature and assistance to peace-making, the different organizations — the Swedish Royal academy of Sciences, the Swedish academy, the Nobel assembly of the Karolinska Institute and the Norwegian Nobel committee are engaged in final selection of candidates. The Swedish academy is engaged in literature. She has been created in the 18th century by the king Gustav III. Her purposes — studying of language, literature and regulation of language and literary norms. That is as though the award was handed in Russia, it would be entrusted to define winners, for example, to Institute of Russian of V.V. Vinogradov. And with the Swedish academy there were also problems. The journalist from Sweden Alexey Sakhnin:aleksey Sakhnin the journalist from Sweden "As any deeply corrupted organization speaks, it is very difficult for it to investigate own flights and to punish himself. It is very narrow circle of people who are connected with each other by mutual responsibility. In recent years the literary award turned into the tactical political tool. The hope is, but so far, unfortunately, all decisions are made as unofficially as they also accepted including decisions on reforming: there are some negotiations in "Royal Court", in the Nobel committee.
