Since 1901, the Nobel Prize in Literature has been awarded annually to an author from any country who has, in the words of the will of Alfred Nobel, produced "in the field of literature the most outstanding work in an ideal direction".  Though individual works are sometimes cited as being particularly noteworthy, here "work" refers to an author's work as a whole.  This display and Research Guide presents the authors who have been awarded this prize.
