Über den Autor

Selma Lagerlöf (1858–1940) was a distinguished Swedish author, renowned for her vivid storytelling and rich prose. Born in the province of Värmland, Lagerlöf was the first woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1909, an accolade that acknowledged her 'lofty idealism, vivid imagination, and spiritual perception'. Lagerlöf's oeuvre encompasses novels, short stories, and children's literature, characterized by a blend of realism and folkloric fantasy. Perhaps her most celebrated work is 'Gösta Berling's Saga' (1891), which exhibits her talent for combining regional folklore with social issues. Her book 'The Wonderful Adventures of Nils' (1906-07) remains a beloved children's classic, notable for its educational and moral lessons as well as its appreciation of the Swedish landscape. Although 'The Big Book of Christmas Magic: 400+ Holiday Novels, Tales, Poems, Carols & Legends' is not one of Lagerlöf's own titles, her stories have indeed contributed to the corpus of festive literature, thereby influencing how Christmas is depicted within Swedish lore and beyond. Her literary style often evokes a sense of compassion, with an undercurrent of social commentary, marking her as a significant voice of her time and a stalwart in the canon of Swedish literature.
