Austrian avantgarde novelist and playwright, gained attention in the spring of 1966 due to an appearance at a meeting of avant-garde artists belonging to the Gruppe 47 in Princeton, New Jersey, USA, where he gave an offensive and provocative public talk. The same year his play Publikumsbeschimpfung (Offending the Audience) appeared and made him a famous enfant terrible.

In 2006 he was involved in a controversy around him taking a pro-Serbian position regarding former president Milosevic and the role of Serbia in the ex-Yugoslav civil wars. That year Handke was nominated for the Heinrich Heine Prize, but the prize money of €50,000 had to be approved by the city council of Düsseldorf. Members of the council's major parties stated they would vote against awarding the prize to Handke, resulting in the prize being withdrawn
