Nobel Prize in Literature cancelled and postponed till 2019



The Nobel Prize in Literature will not be awarded this year, revealed the  Swedish Academy on Friday, reports Guardian U.K

The cancellation comes as the organisation responsible for selecting and awarding the prize is dealing with the controversy over its links to a man accused of sexual assault.

For the first time since 1949, the secretive jury that hands out the world’s most prestigious literary award will not unveil a winner this year, instead revealing two winners in 2019. The decision announced at 9 a.m Swedish times following a meeting on Thursday, comes after a string of sexual assault allegations made against the French photographer Jean-Claude Arnault, the husband of academy member and poet Katarina Frostenson.
