Kjell Espmark, member of the Swedish Academy 1981-2022 and chairman of its Nobel Committee during the years 1987-2004, had an unsurpassed insight into – and knowledge about – the Nobel Prize in Literature. This fact was already established in his book The Nobel Prize in Literature. A study of the Criteria behind the Choices (1991) to which this book is a continuation. In it one may read about the extension of literary coverage during recent decades, the changes in the work forms of the Nobel Committee and the author's own all-time favourite choice off laureate.
