Where is Herbert's place in that equation?
Outside it. The thread is about Szymborska.
but he was nominated in 1939
An irrelevance. Any government can nominate anyone they so choose.The laureates however, especially for the Peace Prize, are not necessarily nominated by anyone.
Interesting you think the Nobel prize is somehow compromised, and therefore that the few which have gone to Polish recipients are somehow unimportant. A view we can expect to hear more and more from the trolls here, now that Poland has only one living recipient.
