This is the most comprehensive history of modern Swedish Literature to have been published in English and the revised edition brings the narrative up to date with assessments of the poetry and prose of the last decade. The book includes both in depth-studies of major writers like August Strindberg, Hjalmar Soderberg and Par Lagerkvist and survey accounts of the more important periods and movements, from the neo-romantic writers of the 1890s to the uniquely important working-class literature of the 1930s and the modernist lyric poetry of the following decade.
