Über den Autor
Selma Ottilia Lovisa Lagerlöf (1858-1940) was a distinguished Swedish author, renowned for her rich storytelling rooted in folklore and her vivid depictions of rural life in Sweden. She was the first woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1909, honored for her lofty idealism, imaginative power, and spiritual insight, as noted in her Nobel citation. Lagerlöf's oeuvre includes novels, short stories, and children's literature, characterized by a narrative style that intertwines myth and reality. Her seminal work, 'Gösta Berling's Saga,' published in 1891, cemented her reputation as a master storyteller. Another notable contribution is 'The Wonderful Adventures of Nils,' which not only serves as children's literature but also as a nuanced exploration of Swedish landscape and culture. Lagerlöf's writings often exhibit a progressive stance on social issues, reflected in her strong-willed characters and advocacy for women's rights. Her literature continues to be celebrated for its evocative prose and enduring themes, such as the triumph of good over evil and the understanding of the human condition. The 'Christmas Collection: 400+ Novels, Stories, Poems, Carols & Legends (Illustrated)' is a testament to Lagerlöf's storytelling prowess, which captures the spirit of Christmas through a rich tapestry of narratives that enchant readers with the magic of the holiday season. Lagerlöf's legacy is preserved in her body of work, which remains an integral part of the literary canon both in Sweden and internationally.
