Toni Morrison, a superb weaver of a web of rich stories, received her highest compliment when she was named winner of the 1993 Nobel Prize for Literature. The Swedish Academy of Letters, in awarding the $825,000 prize, proclaimed her “a literary artist of the first rank” and offered high praise for her masterful style by adding, “She delves into the language itself, a language she wants to liberate from the fetters of race. And she addresses us with the luster of poetry.”

Toni Morrison, the author of "Song of Solomon" "Beloved," "Jazz" and other lyrically narrated novels of black American life, has won the 1993 Nobel Prize in Literature. The announcement was made yesterday in Stockholm by the Nobel Committee of the Swedish Academy, which stated that Ms. Morrison "gives life to an essential aspect of American reality" in novels "characterized by visionary force and poetic import."
