About Author

  1. Selma Ottilia Lovisa Lagerl f was a Swedish author In 1909 she became the first woman to ever receive the Nobel Prize in Literature, in appreciation of the lofty idealism, vivid imagination and spiritual perception that characterize her writings She later also became the first female member of the Swedish Academy Born in the forested countryside of Sweden she was told many of the classic Swedish fairytales, which she would later use as inspiration in her magic realist writings Since she for some of her early years had problems with her legs she was born with a faulty hip she would also spend a lot of time reading books such as the Bible.As a young woman she was a teacher in the southern parts of Sweden for ten years before her first novel G sta Berling s Saga was published As her writer career progressed she would keep up a correspondance with some of her former female collegues for almost her entire life Lagerl f never married and was almost certainly a lesbian she never officially stated that she was, but most later researchers believe this to be the case For many years her constant companion was fellow writer Sophie Elkan, with whom she traveled to Italy and the Middle East Her visit to Palestine and a colony of Christians there, would inspire her to write Jerusalem, her story of Swedish farmers converting into a evangelical Christian group and travelling to The American Colony in Jerusalem.Lagerl f was involved in both women issues as well as politics She would among other things help the Jewish writer Nelly Sachs to come to Sweden and donated her Nobel medal to the Finnish war effort against the Soviet union Outside of Sweden she s perhaps most widely known for her children s book Nils Holgerssons underbara resa genom Sverige The Wonderful Adventures of Nils.

One thought on “The Emperor of Portugalia

  1. I bow to Selma Lagerl f It is hard to describe what Selma Lagerl f means to my understanding of literature She has an obvious place on a piedestal since she was the first woman to be accepted into the Swedish Academy, and also the first to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature Her work occasionally shows signs of her early teaching profession, most notably Nils Holgersson, which I still love to consult to teach students from all parts of the world about Swedish geography, so she means a lot f [...]

  2. Tenant farmer Jan loves his daughter Glory Goldie than anything in the world But financial problems cause his daughter to move to Stockholm to find work at 17 She soon stops sending letters home, having fallen into a bad lifestyle To cope, Jan sinks into a world of his own imagination, where Glory Goldie is the Empress and he is the Emperor of Portugallia His life is filled with thoughts of the Empress return.This book is written in a fairy tale like style, and has some elements of magical real [...]

  3. I did not expect to enjoy this book as much as I did It caught me unexpectedly off guard and I liked it immensely What I had heard about it before was that it explored the psychological response of a man letting his daughter go out into the world What I found was a heart wrenching story about love, affection, loneliness and longing It is the story of a man who loves his daughter so much, that when she leaves, the only way for him to deal with the world is to become The Emperor of Portugalia The [...]

  4. Il realismo fiabesco di un romanzo consolatorioAttenzione anticipazioni sulla tramaL imperatore di Portugallia il primo romanzo di Selma Lagerl f che leggo, e non essendo, a detta di molti critici, il suo capolavoro, pu darsi che la sua lettura non sia sufficiente per articolare complessivamente un giudizio sull autrice Tuttavia pare che questo romanzo sia pienamente ascrivibile alla poetica della scrittrice svedese se cos mi sento di affermare sin da subito che Selma Lagerl f rappresenta, nel p [...]

  5. Struggente, letto tutto d un fiato Impossibile staccarsi dai personaggi, dalla storia, dall a estremo di un padre verso la propria figlia, di un uomo che non riesce e non vuole vedere il male che potrebbe vanificare l immagine idealizzata dell unico a della sua vita.Ho adorato poi gli squarci di fantasy che vanno a colorare il remoto e isolato villaggio svedese, ancora basato su un sistema fortemente feudale rappresentante, a seconda della bont dei signori che si succedono, sia l armonia che l i [...]

  8. This book is one of a kind and an instant favorite The story is about love and longing and Selma Lagerl f describes these feelings beautifully.

  9. So this is the first book I read in Swedish A very beautiful story of love and longing, and I m thankful to my Swedish friend who suggested it, because the language is easy and I could understand almost every word and didn t need to use a dictionary, not even once I m not familiar with Selma Lagerl f s work, apart from Nils Holgersson, and I liked it very much, so guess I will try another one soon And, as I expected from what I ve already learned of the language in movies and tv series, Swedish [...]

  14. As I read this book in Swedish, it took me about a month to finish it.I feel bad but sometimes I was bored with the pace of the story and when I got to the last chapter I was surprised by the endingwhen I read the last sentence of the book, the first thing I said was love can hurt you so much, and there is no love like the love of your parents Anyone wants someone who will love forever, through thick and thin, no matter what we do or become, and this is what people calls unconditional love

  17. Happiness Beyond Reality The Emperor of Portugallia by Selma Lagerl fAbridged version of my review posted on Edith s Miscellany on 10 January 2014Life isn t always easy Now and then most of us have to go through a situation when reality is so hard to bear that it almost drives us crazy At such times many people withdraw into themselves and some seek relief in the realm of imagination Usually this escapism is temporary and limited to reading novels or watching films, but others turn their backs o [...]

  18. Forse a ognuno di noi capitato una volta nella vita di diventare Imperatore di Portugallia, per non dover sopportare un distacco, un addio, una separazione Molti reagiscono con cinismo, altri sono pi forti e sanno spiegare e accettare razionalmente ci che sta accadendo, oppure non provano quell a infinito di Jan verso la figlioletta Ma quando la separazione inaccettabile, inaccessibile, inspiegabile, allora al posto del dolore e dalla lacerazione pu arrivare l Imperatore di Portugallia una realt [...]

  22. I m not sure if I should write this review in English or Swedish cause it s a Swedish writer but I ll go with English I don t have much to say anyway.We read this book in my Swedish class for a reflection and an essay about the book So I won t do the whole analyzing thing with this one, because I will include that in my essay It will be a bit much for me writing this here too.Okay, to sum up This book wasn t my cup of tea at all Lagerl f writes in a realistic way and it s easy to see the charact [...]

  23. It s a story about paternal love and possibly God, but let s leave symbolic interpretations out of this madness, and so forth What I personally got the most out of it though was the depiction of 19th century swedish rural life Lagerl f is I guess one of the authors who defined our view of this setting, with it s clear and graduated class structure, it s poor cottagers, etc It s short, so I would recommend it if only for the experience Lagerl f has a very particular style, somewhere between a fol [...]

  24. I knew this was going to my favorites list.I really enjoyed this book I wouldn t have thought that I would like it, and I wouldn t have even known about it if not for literature lessons at school I really enjoyed going through Jan s life, and getting to know his feelings and situation better I felt really sorry for him, that his daughter turned out like that And the end she needed THAT to happen before she found out that her father loved her Really.But overall I really liked this book I liked th [...]

  25. Jag tycker om boken, mycket f r att jag tycker om Lagerl f som f rfattare, men samtidigt st r jag mig lite p just ber ttarstilen Den r kortfattad och gestaltande, precis som jag brukar gilla, men jag k nner inte att jag riktigt l r k nna karakt rerna Man vet inte riktigt n r man f r tolka utifr n Jans perspektiv eller fr n ett ber ttarperspektiv Sedan har man kanske vant sig att l sa mer djuplodande psykologiska romanen Men om man ska tolka det mer som s gen s r det en h rlig bok, om n med m rka [...]

  26. It is filled with familial love and realizations of what happiness is too late There are some bumps Lagerl f writes in this book as if she isn t sure this is a children s book or a novel for adults , but the final quarter of the book ramps up the emotion and ties you into the gifts of love It is a story not unlike Silverstein s The Giving Tree.

  27. First book I ever read in Swedish Classic It was a gift from my Swedish teacher, which makes perfect sense Really has nothing to do with the Swedes today, but a perfect reflector of early rural life when the country was actually starving, believe it or not Masterpiece Also, where my internet name comes from.
