Long time agoAkutagawa PrizeIt is said that it was an award for unknown and new writers as well, but from around the 1970s it shifted to center-field writers, and in recent years it has often been awarded to large veterans of the elder class.[Annotation 1].. (However, it is hard to say that the Naoki Prize was an award for newcomers even at the beginning of the setting.Matsutaro KawaguchiAnd the 3rd awardKaionji ShiogoroTherefore, it was already impossible to say that he was a newcomer, and he won the 21st award, which is the first time after the war.Tsuneo TomitaIsSanshiro』発表後の受賞であり、既に文壇長者番付上位常連の人気作家であった。その他にも、候補者・受賞者の中には新人とは言い難い人物が少なくない[Annotation 2])

History

BungeishunjushaPresident'sHiroshi KikuchiIs a friendXNUMX NaokiTo commemorate1935ToRyunosuke Akutagawa PrizeFounded with (Akutagawa Prize), it will be announced twice a year thereafter.

The work to be awarded will be decided by the consensus of the selection committee.From the 6th foundationSociety for the Promotion of Japanese LiteratureIt is operated by.Second World WarIn1945Suspended from, but1949Resurrected to.

The selection committee as of 2019 isJiro Asada,Ijuin Shizuka,Mitsuyo Tsunoda,Kenzo Kitagata,N. Kirino,Kaoru Takamura,Mariko Hayashi,Miura Shinon,Miyuki Miyabe9 people (from the first half of 2020).The selection meeting is at a restaurantNew pleasureIt will be held on the 2nd floor of Akutagawa Prize (Akutagawa Prize selection is on the 1st floor).Both the Akutagawa Prize and Naoki Prize winners' press conference and the award ceremony the following monthTokyo TateIt was done in, but now with the rebuilding of the buildingImperial HotelIs being done in.

傾向

The initial target is by newcomersPopular novelTherefore, it is closely and inseparably related to the Akutagawa Prize.In addition, the office of the Society for the Promotion of Japanese Literature, which is the operator, is located in the company.文藝 春秋There is a tendency to receive many awards for novels published by the company or published in the company's magazine, and it is virtually inseparable from Bungei Shunju.

At the time of its founding, the selection target was "popular literary arts of unknown or up-and-coming writers" (Naoki Prize rule), but it became more difficult for young newcomers to receive the award compared to the Akutagawa Prize after the war.This is partly because the selection committee emphasized whether or not they have the writing ability to stand alone as a writer after receiving the award due to the nature of the award for popular literature, as is often the case in each review. It is presumed that there was an idea that "popular novels need to make a living as a writer by selling their works."In addition, the Naoki Prize, which was the only newcomer prize in the field of popular literature, which was still an up-and-coming genre at the time of its founding, was being created by many publishers after the war, and the field of popular literature was being established. It may be related to the fact that it has been positioned as an important award that reveals the direction of popular literature, which has the longest history and authority in the world.

Now that this situation has continued for a long time, a new item called mid-career writers has been added to the selection criteria, and in effect it has been set as an award for popular talented writers who already have a certain career, and the Naoki Prize was initially set. The function of "finding promising newcomers in the literary world" that had been possessed was naturally given to other newcomer awards.As a result, there are many cases in which so-called "too late nominations" and "too late awards" are given to people who have already made a name for themselves as mid-career and veteran writers, and there are also those who have already become popular writers. In some cases, the selection (candidate) is declined.[Annotation 3][1]In this respect, it is a fact that many discussions have occurred inside and outside the literary world and various media.

As for the problems related to the "popular novels" to be selected,Detective NovelThere is a long-standing tendency that it is difficult for writers whose main activity field is to receive awards.The award was givenK.

HoweverTsuyoshi OsakaBut"Cadiz's red star』Awarded (96th), and since then it has been recognized,Akira Sasakura(101th),Ryo Hara(102th),Kaoru Takamura(109th),Osawa Osama(110th),Koike Mariko,Iori Fujiwara(114th),Nonami Asa(115th),Miyuki Miyabe(120th) and constant winners1989から1999Is also called "the rise of mystery"[3]..Northern, Takamura, MiyabeN.

Similarly, even in popular novels, the history after the development period is relatively short.SF,FantasyAlthough such items have been raised several times at the selection stage, the actual award cases areTamio Kageyama"COO from the distant sea』(99th) is the only (Ryo HanmuraHas won the award for humanity novels after being nominated twice for science fiction novels).It broke out in the late Showa periodLight novelSome of the works published by the label of Bungei Shunju have elements that can be said to be popular literature for young people in a broad sense, but they are closely related to the Society for the Promotion of Japanese Literature. Maybe because he doesn't have the know-how for this genre, it's almost unfocused (as a light novel award-winning author).Kazuki SakurabaHowever, the award-winning work was a work published in a general literary magazine).It is also a feature of the Naoki Prize selection that the evaluation of genres such as science fiction and fantasy, which are still extremely fantasy, is generally low.Since ancient times, most of the seats of the selection committee have been occupied by past award winners, and the evaluations that are held every time are highly evaluated.Mysterious novel-Historical novel-Historical novel・ For works that belong to traditional popular literature, such as humanity novels, to which many award winners belong, and for newly cultivated latecomer genres and genres that the selection committee members do not have specialized knowledge or are not interested in There is a strong tendency to make poor understanding of the genre itself, in other words, to make defensive selections.For writers who missed the award due to this trendSakyo Komatsu-Shinichi Hoshi-Yasutaka Tsutsui-Tadashi Hirose-Manjo eye studiesTsutsui later said, "I saw the grief of losing the election three times, specializing in SF, which is considered to be disadvantageous.Bungei Bungei], A novel that critically satirized the Naoki Prize selection, saying that all the selection committee members of the "Naoki Prize" who played the Naoki Prize will be killed.Great run-upHas been announced.
