Kessinger Publishing, May 1, 2004 - Poetry - 320 pages
1917. The translator's aim was to provide an introductory volume to Swedish lyric poetry. Stork writes that he believes the real genius of Swedish poetry became more marked as the national character began to develop under freer, more modern, conditions the poetry he has selected comes from the later lyrists-1870 to the present time. Poetry from fourteen living poets is included, but the accent in selection was strongly placed upon these nine principal poets; Bellman, Tegner, Runebert, Rydberg, Snoilsky, Froding, Levertin, Heidenstam and Karlfeldt.
