Equally important to our understanding of history and humanity are the great works of literature. The Nobel Prize for Literature recognizes modern classics and the efforts of authors to bridge gaps between different cultures, time-periods and styles; the prizewinners between 1968 and 1980 are from four continents. These volumes are collections of the Nobel lectures delivered by the prizewinners, together with their biographies, portraits and presentation speeches for the period 1968 - 1980. Each Nobel lecture is based on the work that won the laureate his prize. New biographical data on the laureates, since they were awarded the Nobel prize, is also included.
