Handke in 2006 Peter Handke (; born 6 December 1942) is a Nobel laureate novelist, playwright, translator, poet, film director, and screenwriter from Austria. Handke was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2019 "for an influential work that with linguistic ingenuity has explored the periphery and the specificity of human experience."

In the late 1960s, he was recognized for the play ''Publikumsbeschimpfung'' (''Offending the Audience'') and the novel ''Die Angst des Tormanns beim Elfmeter'' (''The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick''). Prompted by his mother's suicide in 1971, he reflected her life in the novel ''Wunschloses Unglück'' (''A Sorrow Beyond Dreams''). Handke was a member of the ''Grazer Gruppe'' (an association of authors) and the Grazer Autorenversammlung, and co-founded the Verlag der Autoren publishing house in Frankfurt. He collaborated with director Wim Wenders, leading to screenplays such as ''Der Himmel über Berlin'' (''Wings of Desire'').

Handke has received other awards, including the 1973 Georg Büchner Prize, the 1987 Vilenica International Literary Prize, and the 2018 Austrian Nestroy Theatre Prize for Lifetime Achievement. Provided by wikipedia
