Nobel prize in litterature



Today, the 11th of October, The Swedish Academy will present to the world the laureate in litterature for this year.
If one would take a guess judging from what continents the winners of the last few years have originated from, I would say that this year it's time for an African (I know that sounds very generalizing), South American or Asian author.
Will there be a person who deals with questions concerning race, nationality and religious beliefs?
Will there perhaps be a poet who is regarded being non-political?

Orhan Pamuk was regarded as a political author even though he didn't regard himself as one.
Elfriede Jelinek is also in many ways a political author and that goes for the dramatist (playwright) Harold Pinter.

Will there be a woman or a man? We will see at 1 pm.
