Selma Lagerlof

a.k.a. Selma Ottiliana Lovisa Lagerlof

Author Code: NSOL

Born: Nov. 20, 1858 - Ostra Emtervik, Varmland, Sweden

Died: Mar. 16, 1940 - Marbacka, Sweden

Born with a hip injury that left her lame in her legs, Lagerlof spent much of her childhood in isolation. She eventually recovered and began formal studies at the Royal Women's Superior Training Academy in Stockholm. She then took a position as a teacher in Landskrona and began writing her first novel, The Story of Gosta Berling, which was published in 1891 and which many consider her best work. The book became popular throughout Scandinavia and helped to establish her reputation. She received financial support from the Swedish Academy and the Swedish royal family which allowed her to give up teaching in 1895 and concentrate on writing full-time. While travelling in Italy, she wrote The Miracles of Antichrist, which was published in 1897. In 1902, she published Jerusalem which was an instant success. In 1906, she published The Wonderful Adventures of Nils, a children's book which was not only extremely popular, but which would win her the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1909. Her other works include Invisible Links (1894), The Emperor of Portugalia (1914), The Ring of the Lowenskolds (1925-28) and Marbacka (1926).
