i noticed we have very few works of the laureates of the nobel price for literature, though most of it is in the public domain. i must admit that i also have not heard of many of the ladies and gentlemen, but it would be great to make their works (again) accessible to a greater public.

ill be compiling a list of works over the next few days (starting with 1901-1922) to see what we already have in the catalog and what would be nice to add :)

admins - please feel free to update the list as you see fit.
I have lifted the list of works from wikipedia if there was one (youve got to start somewhere) and added text links.
Neither the list of works nor text links are likely to be complete!

Completed projects are deleted from the list!

David, the two projects in the catalog are dealing with the Nobel prize ceremonies and contain the reasoning why the laurates are awarded the prizes, their biographies, and the Nobel lecture of each of them.

I think Carolin means recording actual writings/books of the nobel laureates in literature.

I want to point out that I read Marie Curie's thesis. She didn't get the prize in literature though (but her thesis is very well and clearly written I have to say...)

We have several books of Anatole France, as far as I know. And Rudyard Kipling, of course. It may be difficult to find works of the other laurates online and/or in translation. 1901 has been a looong time ago... :wink:

Technically, I don't see a problem in including works by people that became laureates after 1923 - but those mostly didn't die early enough, as I found out when I looked at the Nobel prize projects.

i thought id start somewhere, so 1901-1922 looked like a logical first batch.

i am starting with authors whose bibliographies i can find on wikidpedia, and adding links mostly from gutenberg. when this is finished, we will have to get a little more creative.. ;)

Someone might enjoy taking on some short plays by Jacinto Benavente. These are short plays in English; copyright 1919: Translated by John Garret Underhill. The plays are: No smoking -- Princess Bebe -- The governor's wife -- Autumnal roses; and there is an introduction by the translator, titled "Benaventiana." They would be PD in the United States, it seems:

thank you tony and bt!

i was looking at galsworthy (1932) as well and am reading now the dark flower in german translation (1926 edition, unfortunately). you can say what you want about who else should have won a nobel prize in the past hundred years, but the people who did win one wrote some amazing stuff that we should really record more of :D

Good luck with Frederic Mistral ;) He wrote in some kind of local language (Occitan, I should know, that's what the old people speak where my parents live) and I don't think you'll find anyone below 80 who would be able to read it...
That being said, it is a very nice list and a great idea :)

:clap: :clap: :clap:

I've updated Gjellerup (mostly named Karl Gjellerup, without Adolph)

Was about to update Heyse (named without von) but he wrote so much! Just thinking if it would be better not to have a list of individual titles but a list of links to the text and only list the titles that are already done?
Heyse on GutenbergDE
List of scans on Wikisource (Gesammelte Werke in 31(!) Bänden on Archive

Same for Selma Lagelöf and other much translated authors. It's rather complicated to add translated sources to the individual titles when you don't know the original language.
Anyway Lagerlöf in German on GutenbergDE
List of scans on Wikisource

Downside of course is, that we always have to check for pdnes of the translations. Maybe a Wiki page would be better? We could have related pages for different languages. Just thinking aloud.

at the moment, i had only added bibliography under the names of the author if such a list was available from wikipedia. i didnt have time to compile one myself yet, so im glad you already added some for gjellerup. also, i only compared the lists i had with and with our catalog, so there are lots of holes in the data as far as texts are concerned.

all admins are free and welcome to update whatever they think should be added, all users who cannot edit my post just post below.

luckily, we are not in a hurry :)

also, nadine, i would love it if we could get some original mistral in occitane, but as the swedish academy had to award the prize and therefore had to be able to read and understand the poems, i was hoping we could get some translations :)

but really, hearing the original would be priceless. maybe we will have to round up some unsuspecting 80 year old villagers from your parents' hometown and make them read these poems for us...
