‘Did Władysław Reymont receive the Nobel Prize?’

On November 13, 1924, a significant event took place in the history of Polish literature. On that day, Władysław Reymont was announced as the recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature for his outstanding national epic novel, “Chłopi” (The Peasants). Unfortunately, the writer was severely ill at the time (and passed away just a year later) and could not travel to Stockholm in person. On his behalf, the award was accepted by Alfred Wysocki, the Polish diplomatic representative in Sweden.
