Art, Philosophy, Ontological Exploration


Olga Tokarchuk, one of the most influential contemporary Polish novelists, won the 2018 Nobel Prize in Literature for her novel Airliner. Because of the professional training and practical experience of psychology, his works are full of many descriptions of sensory experiences. Her award has brought great surprises to the writing of novels that are groggy and faint, or that writers are almost unprepared for it. Her works are different in that she has explored the noumenon of the novel, not only incorporating the myth, folklore and epic, but also permeating the philosophy.
