Στη Χέρτα Μίλερ το Νόμπελ Λογοτεχνίας 2009


Η γεννημένη στη Ρουμανία Γερμανίδα συγγραφέας Χέρτα Μίλερ κέρδισε το φετινό Βραβείο Νόμπελ Λογοτεχνίας.

Η Ακαδημία της Σουηδίας αναφέρει ότι η Μιλέρ επιλέχθηκε γιατί «με την αφοσίωση στην ποίηση και την ειλικρίνεια της πρόζας, περιγράφει το τοπίο των μη εχόντων».

Η 56χρονη συγγραφέας, που μετανάστευσε στη Γερμανία από την κομμουνιστική Ρουμανία το 1987, έκανε το ντεμπούτο της το 1982 με μια συλλογή μικρών ιστοριών που λογοκρίθηκαν και απαγορεύτηκαν από το ρουμανικό καθεστώς το 1984. Η συλλογή δημοσιεύτηκε τελικά στη Γερμανία, και το έργο της που παρουσίαζε τη ζωή σε ένα μικρό, γερμανόφωνο χωριό στη Ρουμανία ενθουσίασε τους αναγνώστες.

Ακολούθησε το «Τανγκό της Καταπίεσης» στη Ρουμανία. Η ίδια και ο άντρας της αναγκάστηκαν να εγκαταλείψουν τη χώρα εξαιτίας των απόψεων που εξέφραζαν για το καθεστώς στη χώρα και το φόβο σύλληψη από τη μυστική αστυνομία.

Το Βραβείο θα απονεμηθεί στη Μίλερ στις 10 Δεκεμβρίου στη Στοκχόλμη. με πληροφορίες από Associated Press (

STOCKHOLM—Herta Mueller, whose upbringing under Romania's oppressive communist regime inspired poetry and novels, on Thursday won the Nobel Literature Prize.

The 56-year-old Romanian-born German national was hailed by the Swedish prize jury as writer who "with the concentration of poetry and the frankness of prose, depicts the landscape of the dispossessed".

Mueller's family came from a German-speaking minority in Romania and her father was in the German SS during World War II. The Romanian communists deported her mother to a labour camp in the Soviet Union after 1945.

Mueller was sacked from her first job as a translator after refusing to work for dictator Nicolae Ceausescu's hated Securitate secret police.

She decided to devote her life to literature and her first works were smuggled out of the country. Muller defected to West Germany in 1987, two years before the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Mueller has won a host of previous literary plaudits

German author Herta Mueller has been awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize for Literature, the academy in Stockholm has announced.

The Romanian-born writer follows last year's French winner Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clezio, while British writer Doris Lessing won in 2007.

Mueller, born in 1953, is renowned for her depiction of the harsh conditions under Nicolae Ceausescu's regime.

The Swedish academy praised Mueller for both her poetry and prose.

Literary prizes

It said the writer had an ability to "depict the landscape of the dispossessed".

Mueller was born to a family from Romania's German minority and her mother was deported to a labour camp in the Soviet Union after World War II.

She emigrated to Germany in 1987, after being dismissed from her job in Romania during the 1970s due to her refusal to co-operate with the regime's secret police.

Her first collection of German language short stories, published in 1982, were censored in Romania.

Mueller's initial works were smuggled out of the country, while in later years she was awarded several literary prizes, including Dublin's Impac Award in 1998.

One of her later works, 2001's The Appointment, gives great detail about living in a stagnated dictatorship.

The writer is awarded a prize of 10 million Swedish Krone (£892,000) along with the honour, which will be presented at a ceremony in Stockholm later this year.
