New PDF release: Nils Holgerssons underbara resa genom Sverige

Childrens Literature

By Selma Lagerlöf

Den 24 november 1906 utkom första delen av Nils Holgerssons underbara resa genom Sverige. Den trycktes först i 10 000 exemplar och below året 1906 i ytterligare 30 000. 1907 kunde förlaget trycka ytterligare a hundred 000 exemplar av skolupplagan. Snart sagt varje folkskola skyndade att anta boken som läsebok.

Framgången var avgjord. Från att från början vara ett beställningsarbete, som skapats för skolan, av en stor författare med lysande pedagogisk instinct, har Nils Holgersson höjt sig från skolbok until eventually en litterär klassiker av världsformat.

Sample text

There is no substitute for thorough-going, ardent, and sincere earnestness” (560). What makes this self-advertisement more than conventional Victorian bombast—Carlyle’s gospel of work—is how precisely and powerfully David distinguishes the intense professional discipline required for literary work, which encompasses both romance and reality, from the brutal Evangelical “realism” and criminal hypocritical “respectability” of Murdstone and Uriah Heep.  . I do my duty” (85). Rather than making the usual opposition between irresponsible, dreamy, romantic literary fancy and hard, realistic, Victorian practical material action, David describes C harles D ickens ’ s H eroic V ictims his literary vocation as the ultimate—and heroic—civilizing force in modern England and its empire.

In this world of Hobbesian self-interest, Wemmick does care for his deaf, aged father, but it is characteristic of Dickens’s dark realism that Wemmick is also seen moving among the wretched prisoners of Newgate “as a gardener might walk among his plants” (199). Thus Wemmick fosters and thrives on punition. His private personal virtue does not erase his professional complicity in a cruel social system. And the secrecy with which he surrounds his private life taints it with something of Jaggers’s paranoia.

He makes dreadful mouths as he rules the cyphering-book; and now he throws his eye sideways down our lane [of small boys], and we all droop over our books and tremble” (91). Throughout the book, adults steal from children. A waiter in a pub ends up eating David’s meal—a scene that is brilliantly doubled when the glamorous, six-years-older schoolboy Steerforth appropriates David’s seven shillings on the first day of school and uses them to throw a night-time “feast” laid “out on my bed in the moonlight,” a “royal spread” for the boys in their dorm room (88).
