Anne Carson

Princess of Asturias Award for Literature 2020

Statement by Anne Carson, following the conferral of the 2020 Princess of Asturias Award for Literature

"An astounding honour. An absolute surprise. Ever since I walked across Spain in 1983 (from France to Compostela) I have wondered at the culture of this people who do not smile unless there’s a very good reason. How gracious of you to suggest that I may have given you a reason.”

Anne Carson
Ann Arbor (Michigan), 18th June 2020
