Sort: Oldest first
A Swedish novelist; born Sept. 29, 1797; died Feb. 13, 1848. Unlike Fredrika Bremer, who described middle-class life, she was the novelist of Swedish society; seeing its follies and frivolities indeed, but lacking that power of satire which makes, for instance, Thackeray's handling of similar material so effective. Vivid and graceful, she wanted simplicity and outspokenness. Her best works were: "Kusinerna"; "Axel"; "Class Parallels"; "A Peasant and his Surroundings", the only novel in which she treats of middle or lower class life.
