A Swedish novelist, eminent in the realistic school; born at Stockholm, Oct. 16, 1849; died at Naples, Oct. 24, 1892. A volume of short tales, "By Chance", and the dramas, "The Actress", "The Curate", etc., were a great success anonymously; and she then put her own name to three successive volumes of short stories called "From Life", followed by "A Summer Story", "Woman and Erotism", and many others. "Ideal Women", "The Struggle for Happiness", and "A Rescuing Angel" (the most successful of her plays) are most notable among her later dramas.
