Selma Lagerlöf (1858-1940) is one of Sweden’s best-loved storytellers. In 1909, she became the first woman – and the first Swede – to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. Her writings are among the treasures of world literature. Her subtle wit and wisdom sparkle with a romantic, legendary cast of characters.
“Why should love only be healed by love?” from “The Ball at Ekeby.”
She neither loved nor hated…she understood them all. He that understands does not hate. Love is strong when it has gone through the fire of pain from “The Auction of Bjorne.”
This new book includes selections from Lagerlöf’s literary works representative of her keen observations, both the profound and the witty.
