This quote from the Novel Prize winner, Nelly Sachs, about Selma Lagerlof (1848-1940) is one that rings ture not only for Germany but for all of Europe at the turn of the century (19th-20th). Lagerlof was the first woman to win the Nobel Prize for Literature (1909), and at the height of her literary career, was an internationally acclaimed author, praised by the public and critics alike. She was particularly heralded in Germany where Scandinavian authors have a strong impact on German literature during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This book examines the literary impact Selma Lagerlof had on German authors of the time. It also clearly sheds new light on Selma Lagerlof, as well as other notable German authors such as Franz Kafka, Bertolt Brecht, Gerhardt Hauptmann, Nelly Sachs, Ina Seidel and Gustav Frenssen. This book will be of great value to those in the fields of Scandinavian, German and Comparative literature.
