Über den Autor

Selma Lagerlöf, a luminary in Swedish literature, was born on November 20, 1858, in Mårbacka, Värmland, Sweden. Her literary pursuits began early, deeply influenced by the rich folk tales and legends native to her home region. Reveling in a narrative style that wove together enchantment with realism, her work was both innovative and captivating, leading her to become the first woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1909. Her storytelling prowess shines through in works such as 'Gösta Berling's Saga,' which brought her initial acclaim, and 'The Wonderful Adventures of Nils,' a beloved children's classic that melds whimsy with cultural edification. While 'Believe in Love & Joy' is not commonly recognized within her oeuvre, it is with her seminal texts like 'Jerusalem' that her literary legacy truly resonates. Lagerlöf's stylistic endeavors were imbued with themes of humanity and compassion, reflecting her deep conviction in humanitarian ideals. Her writing is characterized by an evocative use of the Swedish landscape, strong female characters, and a moral undercurrent that suggests a belief in the transformative power of love and kindness. Lagerlöf's impact extended beyond her literary achievements; she was also a prominent figure in the women's suffrage movement in Sweden. Her death on March 16, 1940, marked the end of a storied career, but her narratives endure as testament to her ingenuity and heart. Her majestic homestead Mårbacka is preserved as a museum, illustrating the enduring reverence for her work and its place in Swedish heritage.
