Annie Erno is the 17th woman to receive the high Nobel Prize. She made her debut as a writer in 1974 with Les Armoires vides.
The Nobel Prize in Literature in 2022 was awarded to 82-year-old French writer Annie Ernault. Information about this appeared on the official page of the Nobel Committee on Twitter.
The Nobel Prize was awarded to the writer for “the courage and clinical accuracy with which she reveals the origins of alienation and the collective limitations of personal memory.”
The members of the committee noted that Erno consistently and from different angles explores a life marked by strong differences in terms of gender, language and class. Her path to authorship has been long and difficult.
Annie Ernault is the 17th woman to win the Nobel Prize since 1901. However, she did not become the oldest awarded female writer. In 2017, the committee awarded the prize to writer Doris Lessing, who was 88 years old at the time of receiving the award.
Erno received her award on Thursday, October 6, from the permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy, Mats Malm.
