From the political to the aesthetic, Nobel Lectures collects the words of a quarter century of literature laureates, offering a glimpse into the inspirations, motivations, and passionately held beliefs of some of the greatest minds in the world of literature. Literature laureates from England, China, France, Austria, South Africa, Egypt, Hungary, Trinidad, Germany, Portugal, Italy, Poland, Ireland, Japan, Saint Lucia, Mexico, Spain, Russia, Nigeria, Turkey, and the former Soviet Union offer their meditations on imagination and the process of writing along with keen discussions of global affairs, geography and colonialism, and cultural change in a collection where "the force of their political opinions is what truly distinguishes them" (New York). From Harold Pinter's passionate lecture on the nature of truth in art and politics to J. M. Coetzee's allegorical journey through the mysteries of the creative process, from Toni Morrison's essay on the link between language and oppression to Orhan Pamuk's tender memories of the influence of his father, each of the pieces--whether the laureate writes poetry, drama, or prose--is a testament to the power of literature to touch us and, every so often, to change the world.
