Svetlana Alexievich, a Belarussian journalist and prose writer, won the Nobel Prize in Literature on Thursday “for her polyphonic writings, a monument to suffering and courage in our time,” Sara Danius, permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy announced.

She had created “a history of emotions — a history of the soul, if you wish,” in works such as “War’s Unwomanly Face,” a 1988 book based on interviews with hundreds of women who took part in the Second World War. The book work is the first in a grand cycle, “Voices of Utopia,” that depicted life in the Soviet Union “from the perspective of the individual.” “By means of her extraordinary method — a carefully composed collage of human voices — Alexievich deepens our comprehension of an entire era,” the academy said.
