Nobel Prize in Literature winners

Posting the list of Nobel Prize in Literature recipients as part of a years-long project to note which authors I've read or have works to read. Currently, I've read or own works by almost 50 of the 108 recipients during the 104 years the prize has been awarded (there were no winners a few years, mostly during the two World Wars). Bold means I've read the author, italics that I have at least one of their works but have not read anything, and plain text means I have not read anything yet in any language by that author.
