About the Author

Selma Lagerlöf (1858-1940) stands as a colossus in Swedish literature and is distinguished as the first female writer to win the Nobel Prize in Literature, awarded to her in 1909. Her literary career was marked by a blend of storytelling genius, deep empathy, and vivid portrayal of rural Swedish life, pioneering the use of local dialects and folklore in a way that breathed life into her characters and settings. With an output that includes novels, short stories, and children's literature, her work broke boundaries and challenged societal norms of her time.

Her most acclaimed novel, 'Gösta Berling's Saga' (1891), captures the essence of Värmland, her native province, and has been a staple in Swedish culture. But Lagerlöf's influence extended beyond conventional literature. Her book 'The Wonderful Adventures of Nils' is not only a celebrated children's classic but also a vehicle to teach Swedish geography and culture to young readers. Her oeuvre is well represented in 'CLASSICS FOR CHRISTMAS: 180+ Novels, Christmas Tales, Poems & Carols in One Volume (Illustrated)', showcasing the variety and depth of her work alongside other timeless pieces. Lagerlöf's dedication to exposing social injustices and her innovative techniques in narrative structure continue to influence authors today and secure her an enduring place in the annals of world literature.
