Stockholm: Renowned Norwegian writer Jon Fosse has been awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for the year 2023.
The announcement of the 64-year-old author’s name was made by a Swedish company, which praised his contributions to theater dramas and prose.
Jon Fosse began his literary career in 1983 with his novel “Red, Black” and went on to write numerous theater plays that are widely performed across Europe.
The Nobel laureate’s upbringing was in a household that was rebellious against religious education, and Fosse himself initially identified as an “atheist” but in 2013, he converted to Catholicism.
Among Fosse’s famous works are “Aliss at the Fire” and “Melancholia 1, 2” which gained widespread popularity.
However, Jan Fosse’s most renowned work is his epic novel “Septology,” spanning seven volumes and totaling over 1200 pages, a novel in which there is not a single full stop.
