The decisions of the Swedish Academy, which awards the Nobel Prize for Literature, are difficult to calculate and transparent, because its criteria system is unknown. In addition, the organization does not reveal the names of the candidates or the shortlist, and also encrypts the documents for this matter for fifty years.

Accordingly, the time has come to announce the candidates from whom the Nobel Prize in Literature was chosen in 1973. Patrick White – Stabbed by Fidelio. There are a total of one hundred and one names in this list, which is the same number as in the previous year. Among other things:

You can only read the names of Jorge Luis Borges, Simone de Beauvoir, Friedrich Dürrenmatt, or Thornton Wilder.

In addition, we can find many authors who received the Nobel Prize in subsequent years, e.g William Golding (1983), Günter Grass (1999) or Doris Lessing (2007).

Nominations are made each year at the request of leaders of professional organizations, academics and scholars. Writers' unions in individual countries can authorize candidates, but have no influence on who ends up on the list.
