The Nobel Prize in Literature for 2021 has been awarded to educator and author Abdulrazak Gurnah “for his uncompromising and compassionate penetration of the effects of colonialism and the fate of the refugee in the gulf between cultures and continents”. Gurnah was born in Zanzibar, Tanzania, and has lived in England since 1968. He was a professor of English and postcolonial literatures at the University of Kent’s School of English, until his recent retirement.
