Why not? The academician resigned because of the award. Why is the resignation? Because the Swedish Academy responsible for the Nobel prize for literature has been caught in a crisis of continuous sexual harassment. How did the scandal ferment? French photographer Jean Claude Arnaud (Jean-ClaudeArnault) is the husband of frotson, a Swedish academician. According to a daily news survey, in November last year, 18 women accused Arnaud of sexually harassing or sexually harassing them between 1996 and 2017. Swedish media reported that Arnaud had also indecent Swedish Crown Prince Vitoria princess. But Arnaud denied all the charges. According to the New York Times, Mr. and Mrs. Arnaud run a cultural organization in Stockholm, which has received considerable rewards from the Swedish Academy, which has given him the opportunity and influence. Arnaud used his influence in the arts, including his relationship with the Swedish Academy, to put pressure on young women. An artist named Anna Karin Bulend said she had reacted to the college in 1996, and Arnaud had attacked her, but her voice was ignored. Another woman said Arnaud had touched her at a Book Fair in the southern city of Goteborg. I managed to get out of it and yell at him, and he said, in this manner, Im going to keep you alive in this industry. In the past 5 months, the Swedish Academy has cut off its links with the cultural organization as the truth has been exposed, and the police have launched a criminal investigation. But this has already had an irreparable impact on the prestige of the Nobel Prize. Kerr, a historian, said: KjellEspmark: Corruption within the academy has been exposed, and its noble aims have been replaced by nepotism in an attempt to disguise serious violations. In addition to sexual assault scandals, Arnaud was also accused of disclosing information about the winners. He has leaked the Nobel prize for literature seven times since 1996 to make profits for Gambling company. After the scandal, the Swedish Academy chose to give up the charges against Arnaud and Fhloss ten Song, and decided not to expel the woman academician through an internal vote. Three heavyweight academicians of the Swedish Academy and the Nobel literature prize judge resigned. The Swedish Academys eighteen lifetime academicians are responsible for the literature award review, and now only 10. The appointment of academicians is lifelong and is not allowed to resign. According to the existing regulations, unless the person dies, the seats of the members who withdraw will continue to be vacant. This is embarrassing, and how to comment on it later? However, the committee is still in a dead cycle, because even if a new member is elected to replace those who quit, it is still lacking a quorum for approving new members. Now, the king of Sweden has stepped in to promote the reform of the Swedish Academy. In addition to the right to resign, the procedures for the protection of conflicts of interest and secret information will also be strengthened. The Nobel prize in literature is considered to be one of the most important international honors in the literary field, and now it becomes a joke. Now, will the Nobel Prize go down the altar? As a prize awarding body, the Swedish Academy will put all its efforts into restoring public trust. For decades, how to choose a winner of literature award has always been opaque. Founded in 1786, the Swedish Academy was founded by Gustaf III. The King of Sweden is a patron. The Nobel prize for literature was a Swedish chemist, engineer, inventor, Nobel, who wrote a will in November 27, 1895, and donated over 3122 thousand Swedish Kron in all his property to set up a fund. Each year, the interest was given as a bonus to the person who has made the greatest contribution to mankind over a year. Since 1901, the right to arbitrate in the literary awards has been handed over to the Swedish Academy. But the Nobel prize for literature has been criticized for its politicization and narrow or misleading elements since its beginning. According to the New York Times, many writers on the list of winners in history are not well known, but well-known writers like Twain, Tolstoy, Proust and Joyce are ignored. The 1974 award was awarded to two members of the Swedish Academy, EyvindJohnson and HarryMartinson, but left no one of them nominated, such as Vladimir Nabokov, Jorge Luis Borges and Graham Green. Now, shelving this years award is the only way to restore prestige. In fact, 7 Nobel prize for literature had not been awarded before, but mostly during the war. Carle Henrik Henrik, President of the Nobel foundation, said, when the selection of the winners is a problem, it is necessary to postpone the award, or the decision will not be believed to be credible. It takes time to rebuild prestige. Although the Swedish Academy of Arts has said that it will issue two years of Nobel prize for literature in 2019, will it still have its past glory?
