(Global Times) Chinese people are keeping their eyes on nominee Can Xue for the Nobel Prize in literature this year, which will be awarded on Thursday.  

Can Xue, real name Deng Xiaohua, was born in Central China's Hunan Province in 1953. She ranked number 4 on the guess nominees list on the British website Nicer Odds as of press time.

Chinese internet users discussed actively on social media her chances compared to previous Chinese literature laureate Mo Yan, known for his "hallucinatory realism."

Susan Sontag, US essayist, critic and cultural icon, once said, "If China has one possibility of a Nobel laureate, it is Can Xue."

Can's books have been translated and published outside China.

Frontier, published in the US in 2017, won attention and applause from the West, according to media reports.

Other hot guesses include Canadian essayist Anne Carson, French (Guadeloupean) writer Maryse Conde, Japanese writer Haruki Murakami and Canadian writer Margaret Atwood, author of The Handmaid's Tale, which has been made into a hit TV series. Chinese writer Yu Hua and poet Yang Lian are also on the guess list, according to Nicer Odds.

  I'd say  Margaret Atwood deserves to be the winner of  the Nobel Prize in literature, insomuch as she has the gumption to use her novels to assail some exalted leaders' attempts to glorify  masculine dominance and  nativism.  Beyond that, she also inveighs against some complaisant women's dastardly acts, such as colluding with misogynists to  coerce  women to be the slaves of the powers that be  or   bring women to their knees.

    Susan Sontag could have been the winner of  the Nobel prize for literature. She was a thinker.

Should stop placing too much emphasis on Western accolades. Just focus on delivering global standard work and results.

Please be down to Earth! Chinese will never get Nobel Prize for simple reason that in the eyes of the west, it is not only far backwards but a nation full of copy cats with determination to imitate than anything else!

Problem is a few know what and where China is and about!

US citizens are more concern about their own neighborhood than what is out of state!

So, Chinese literature is never and will never be ever be awarded the Nobel Prize!

Nobel Prize for Literature is nothing more than a political tool tooled to indoctrinate the world and shape it to their school of thought and bend without resistance but just to discover that it hurts after acceptance by giving up their own rights!
