American poet Louise Glück has been awarded this year's Nobel Prize in Literature. She has become the first American woman to win the Nobel prize for literature in 27 years.

She was cited for “her unmistakable poetic voice that with austere beauty makes individual existence universal”. Glück is the 16th woman to win the Nobel.

In her poems, the self listens for what is left of its dreams and delusions, and nobody can be harder than she in confronting the illusions of the self,” said Anders Olsson, the chair of the Nobel prize committee.

As we reported earlier, Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna are the first two women to share the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

They were awarded for their work on the technology of genome editing.

Both women have been previously recognized for their discoveries and in 2015 were among those awarded the Canada Gairdner International prize for the development of the technology, which is widely regarded as having transformed the life sciences.

It is worth noting that this year's prize is worth 10m Swedish kronor (over 1.1 million dollars).
