All these factors have resulted in very renowned and/or well-known authors [[AwardSnub not getting the prize]], while other, more obscure or less influential writers did get it. A few of the writers that, for one reason or another, did famously ''not'' get it are Leo Tolstoy, Creator/HenrikIbsen, Henry James, Emile Zola, Creator/MarkTwain, Creator/ThomasHardy, Creator/AntonChekhov, Creator/AugustStrindberg, Creator/JorgeLuisBorges, Chinua Achebe, Creator/VladimirNabokov and Creator/JamesJoyce. Two authors, Creator/JeanPaulSartre and Boris Pasternak, were awarded the Prize, but declined it.[[note]]Sartre because he refused to accept prizes categorically, Pasternak due to Soviet government pressure.[[/note]]

The most frequent general criticisms leveled at the Academy's choices are Eurocentrism; a bias in favor of Sweden (Swedes have received more prizes than all of Asia or Latin America); and bias in favor of men: as of 2017, there have been 114 Nobel Prize winners, of whom only 14 were women.
