Schlegel-Tieck Prize (German)

The Schlegel-Tieck Prize is an annual award of £3,000 for translations into English of full length German works of literary merit and general interest.

First awarded in 1965 and named for two poets of the Romantic period, August Wilhelm Schlegel (1767-1845) and Ludwig Tieck (1773-1853), the prize is generously sponsored by the Goethe-Institut.

The 2015 Schlegel-Tieck Prize, for translations published in 2014, went to Susan Bernofsky for her translation of The End of Days by Jenny Erpenbeck (Portebello). 

The 2017 Schlegel-Tieck Prize, for books published in 2016, will be awarded in 2018.

Entries to the 2018 Schlegel-Tieck Prize, for books published in 2017, are now open.
