Some critics are ambiguous as to whether Kadare was a dissident or a conformist during the communist period, even though books such as The Palace of Dreams, are a brilliant denouncement of the tyranny and absurdity of the communist regime.
Power of Reading
"dissidence was a position no one could occupy, even for a few days, without facing the firing squad. On the other hand, my books themselves constitute a very obvious form of resistance."
Kadare's works have been published in over forty countries and translated in over thirty languages. In English, his works have usually appeared as secondary translations from the French.
In 1996 he became a lifetime member of the Academy of Moral and Political Sciences of France, where he replaced the philosopher Karl Popper. In 1992, he was awarded the Prix mondial Cino Del Duca, in 2005 he received the inaugural Man Booker International Prize. In 2009, Kadare was awarded the Prince of Asturias Award for Liturature. He has been a candidate for the Nobel Prize in Literature several times.
