American poet Louise Gluck has won the 2020 Nobel Prize in Literature. The Swedish Academy said they chose the poet for her “unmistakable…voice that with austere beauty makes individual existence universal.”
It comes as the historic literary body seeks to repair its reputation after several years of scandal.
The 77-year-old has also won many major literary awards in the United States, including the National Humanities Medal, Pulitzer Prize, National Book Award, National Book Critics Circle Award, and Bollingen Prize, among others.
From 2003 to 2004, she was the Poet Laureate of the United States.
Glück is often described as an autobiographical poet; her work is known for its emotional intensity and for frequently drawing on myth, history, or nature to meditate on personal experiences and modern life.
