Literary Prizes

6 Contributors

Literary prizes are awards given to authors, or to specific literary pieces or bodies of work, to highlight their literary merit, their high quality of writing, and their cultural importance.

While there are those that see these awards as exclusionary or elitist, they are an invaluable insight into the works that are grabbing cultural and critical attention at any given time. The long history of some of the awards also serves as a record for the literary tastes of a given era, and how they have changed over time.

Among the most famous literary awards are the Nobel Prize for Literature, the Pulitzer Prize, the Man Booker Prize and the Man Booker International Prize. 

On this topic page we explore literary awards, news of their yearly nominations, as well as articles on the winning authors and texts.
