These volumes are collections of the Nobel lectures delivered by the prizewinners, together with their biographies, portraits and presentation speeches for the period 1981 – 1990. Each Nobel lecture is based on the work that won the laureate his prize. New biographical data of the laureates, since they were awarded the Nobel prize, are also included. These volumes of inspiring lectures by outstanding individuals should be on everyone's bookshelf.Below is a list of the prizewinners during the period 1981 – 1990: (1981) E CANETTI — for writings marked by a broad outlook, a wealth of ideas and artistic power; (1982) G G MÁRQUEZ — for his novels and short stories, in which the fantastic and the realistic are combined in a richly composed world of imagination, reflecting a continent's life and conflicts; (1983) W GOLDING — for his novels which, with the perspicuity of realistic narrative art and the diversity and universality of myth, illuminate the human condition in the world of today; (1984) J SEIFERT — for his poetry which endowed with freshness, sensuality and rich inventiveness provides a liberating image of the indomitable spirit and versatility of man; (1985) C SIMON — who in his novel combines the poet's and the painter's creativeness with a deepened awareness of time in the depiction of the human condition; (1986) W SOYINKA — who in a wide cultural perspective and with poetic overtones fashions the drama of existence; (1987) J BRODSKY — for an all-embracing authorship imbued with clarity of thought and poetic intensity; (1988) N MAHFOUZ — who, through works rich in nuance — now clearsightedly realistic, now evocatively ambiguous — has formed an Arabian narrative art that applies to all mankind; (1989) C J CELA — for a rich and intensive prose, which with restrained compassion forms a challenging vision of man's vulnerability; (1990) O PAZ — for impassioned writing with wide horizons, characterized by sensuous intelligence and humanistic integrity.
