Thomas Hounds, I think Bloß, was referring to this:

Oe, Simon’s war of words, a public spat, over nuclear, extracted here: http://www.revue-bancal.fr/analyses/litterature-querelle-de-prix-nobel/

Simon loved old Japan but not new from what I understand.

And agree with your points. You would think the decision making would have evolved over time from international submissions to international participation given the status of the award. But no. An international panel would have its own complexities, politics etc, but it is preferable and could work. The Academy has had a long period to prove its un-biased, all-encompassing, objective approach, but the numbers don’t stack up and the difficulties of language etc have proved insurmountable.

(I read “pain” up above, hope all is well or well soon.)
