Über den Autor

Selma Lagerlöf (1858-1940) was a distinguished Swedish author and the first woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature, which she was awarded in 1909. Lagerlöf's work is known for its vivid storytelling and deep-rootedness in Swedish folklore and rural landscapes. She often infused her narratives with mysticism and a profound understanding of human nature, which, along with her humanitarian values, made her a celebrated figure in world literature. Among her most famous works is 'The Wonderful Adventures of Nils,' a beloved children's classic that showcases her inventiveness and compassion. Her literary oeuvre comprises novels, short stories, and plays. While 'Jingle All The Way: 180+ Christmas Classics in One Volume (Illustrated Edition)' is mentioned, it is likely an anthology of various authors' works where Lagerlöf's stories have been included, rather than a book written solely by her. Her stories in such collections stand out for their rich imagination and warmth, qualities that have cemented her legacy as a pioneer of modern Swedish literature. Her style, characterized by lyrical beauty and moral depth, reflects the traditions and changes of her time, providing an invaluable insight into the Swedish national character and countryside.
