Στη Ρουμανό- Γερμανίδα Χέρτα Μίλερ το βραβείο Νόμπελ Λογοτεχνίας 2009


Η άγνωστη στο ελληνικό κοινό Χέρτα Μίλερ είναι η νικήτρια για το Νόμπελ Λογοτεχνίας 2009.
Η Χέρτα Μίλερ, που γεννήθηκε το 1953 στη Ρουμανία, είναι μυθιστοριογράφος, ποιήτρια και δοκιμιογράφος και στο έργο της περιγράφει τις συνθήκες ζωής κάτω από το καθεστώς του Νικολάε Τσαουσέσκου.
Αιτιολογώντας την απόφασή της η Σουηδιική Ακαδημία αναφέρει ότι η Μίλερ, "με την πυκνότητα της ποίησής της και την ειλικρίνεια της πρόζας της, σκιαγραφεί το σύμπαν των στερημένων".

Μόνο ένα βιβλίο της κυκλοφορεί στα ελληνικά, όπως μπόρεσα να δω:

Herta Müller was born in Niţchidorf, Timiş County, the daughter of Swabian farmers. She studied German studies and Romanian literature at the Timişoara University. She was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2009.

In 1976, Müller began working as a translator for an engineering company, but was dismissed in 1979 for her refusal to cooperate with the Securitate, the Communist regime's secret police. Initially, she made a living by teaching kindergarten and giving private German lessons. Her first book was published in Romania (in German) in 1982, and appeared only in a censored version, as with most publications of the time.

In 1987, Müller left for Germany with her husband. Over the following years she received many lectureships at universities in Germany and abroad. She currently lives in Berlin. Müller received membership of the German Academy for Writing and Poetry in 1995, and other positions followed. In 1997 she withdrew from the PEN centre of Germany in protest of its merge with the former German Democratic Republic branch.

In July 2008, Müller sent a critical open letter to Horia-Roman Patapievici, president of the Romanian Cultural Institute. This was in reaction to the support given by the institute to a Romanian-German Summer School involving two former informants of the Securitate.[1]
