Nobel Prize in Literature

Here are a list of those who have won the Noble Prize in Literature. If you click on their names, you will be taken to Librarything.com’s author page which should list their entire works. The Nobel Prize is very close to my heart because my favorite poet ever won in 1995 (Seamus Heaney).

Hope you get some use out of these lists, and are able to find some amazing reads among them.
