Why Tolstoy protested in the Nobel Prize in Literature?
Nobel Prize winner is the wisest of the wisest or mere mortals?
Every year they get the Nobel Prize. But you can not understand the hype he creates. Was it because the Laureates created a distinctive work that is supposed to give "the greatest benefit of mankind"?
If so, the members of the Nobel Laureate Committee must have divine wisdom to decide what constitutes the "greatest work"
They? May! But here are some of the famous cases that have been robbed of the Nobel Prize laureates and which have a different meaning.

Tolstoy wrote war and peace, as well as Anna Karenina, the greatest works of realistic fiction
Why Tolstoy protested against the Nobel Prize
When Sully Prudhomme (1839-1907) chose a French poet and awarded the Nobel Prize for the Swedish Academy for his literary works, a conflict of emotions and reason, the world view protested. Not because Prudhomme was awarded the prize, but Tolstoy was ignored; and for this purpose, 42 scholars and artists promised to the respectable celebrity (Tolstoy) who protested against the indifference of the Academy to the Tolstoy.
The Swedish Academy did not even consider the 1902 Literary Prize. Thanks to Swede's only literary expert, Carl David af Wirsen (1842-1912), the Permanent Secretariat of the Academy and the Chairman of the Nobel Literary Committee, who in his judgment alluded to the fact that Tolstoy had ever won the Prize.
Card David af Wirsen, the Great Judge of the Nobel Committee
Carl David af Wirsen, "war and peace" and "Annakerenina" deserved the prize … while his religious sociological and political writings are immature and misleading … condemned all forms of civilization and instead urged a primitive way of life that separated from all forms of higher culture … though inexperienced in biblical criticism, it re-interpreted the New Testament as a semi-rationalist, half-mystical spirit, a narrow-minded, they are disillusioned with all forms of civilization, they despair: they do not like recognition … it would be wrong for the great writer to be forced to ard … "After reading the account of President Wirsen, what would he say, but he would not sigh? [Maximilian Gorky] the revolutionary writer  Even Gorky Maxim (1868-1936) has been awarded the prize for "Prize." But the Academy It was close to reach an entirely objective judgment as part played during the Revolution intellectual, and other works of "politically colored."
Literary judgment of political colors. Indeed, this is not one of the main conditions for Nobel's will. This explains why the Russians did not receive a single prize for the first 50 years in the II. Until the end of the Second World War, except Ivan Bunin, a small writer (1870-1953; 1933) and Ivan Petrovic Pavlov (1849-1936; 1904). Likewise, since the opening of the Nobel Laureates in 1901, there have been many cases where many deserved celebrated personalities have become victims and have denied the Nobel Prize.
