Books by the writer of Yamal Anna Nerkagi were translated to English for nomination for the Nobel Prize in literature. This information was given to a correspondent of the news agency “Sever-Press” by the chief researcher of the scientific center for study of the Arctic, doctor of philological sciences Natalia Tsymbalistenko.
As she reminds, Ural Federal University advanced Anna Nerkagi for the nomination for the prize in 2015, but unsuccessfully, because the books were not translated to English.
As Natalia Tsymbalistenko says, some professional translators stated that, for example, the novel “Molchashchiy” (The silent person) was untranslatable.
However, according to her, scientists from Tyumen State University managed to make qualitative translation of the novels “Silent person” and “Aniko of the Nogo family”, what gives the opportunity to nominate Anna Nerkagi for the Nobel Prize.
Also, as Natalia Tsymbalistenko notes, the two-volume collection of the Nenets woman-writer was published in 2017. A part of novels was translated to Russian and English. The edition became a laureate of the regional contest “The book of the year” in the nomination “The best book of prose”, what, in the opinion of doctor of philological sciences, can become a step to receiving of the most prestigious prize of the world.
