      The moon rose, and the loveliest time of night came.The moon poured down her light from the pure blueHigh arch of heaven over the leaves of the terrace.At our feet a lily shivered in its urn;And gold light rose from its chalice.We had all come to sit on the stairs, Both the old ones and young, silentIn order to let the emotions take upThe old tunes in the loveliest time of night.I do not mourn for the stories told around the fire like those of previous generations do, for I was not the one who k [...]

      I had literally never heard of Selma Lagerlöf, the first female winner of the Nobel Prize for literature (in 1909), before a Swedish friend recently recommended her to me. This may just be evidence of my personal ignorance, but I suspect she doesn’t have that much name recognition in the English-speaking world generally, despite the fact that many of her books have long been available in English translation (in the case of Gösta Berling's Saga, since 1894.)Gösta Berling’s Saga was Lagerl [...]

      It was hard for me to judge the translation without knowing the book in the original. That's why I have to look at it as to any other book. And, what do I find:1. effortlessly gloomy plot (some gothical spices to Scandinavia)2. some black humour (hardly enough to change the situation to better)3. mexican soap opera (Gosta, "the lord of love", the sinful former priest, wanders full of self-pity and gay (yep the biggest part of this book is overflooded with this word so beware, this word is infect [...]

      Are the new caretakers of Ekeby twelve worthless drunks or twelve worthy, heroic figures fallen on hard times? By the novel's end, both possibilities seem true, and their leader is the most complicated of all the men--a young defrocked minister and lady's man named Gosta Berling. The men have made a contract with the devil in human form and have been granted the run of the Ekeby estate for a full year. Over the course of the year, Gosta experiences epic love no less than three times, and every m [...]

      I didn't enjoy that much this book. The beginning was interesting and I thought that the book would have talked about Gösta Berling, a disavowed priest, and his adventures. It talked about him, but the whole story wasn't flowing: every chapter was a kind of short story. I may say that the book is made by many episodes with several characters, all equalliy important though Gösta Berling is the "gravity center". So some chapters are dedicated to Gösta's friends and these chapters didn't add any [...]

      How Strikingly Beautiful He Was: A Review of Gosta Berling's Saga The Varmland of Gosta Berling's Saga made me crave a word that would be in all ways synonymous with the word "exotic" except that the word I want would replace connotations of south tinged with oriental with connotations of north tinged with occidental. I'm not sure what exact location Western Culture can be given but it seems reasonable to posit that if it could be pinpointed Varmland would fall far enough north of there to quali [...]

      Уявіть собі на хвильку, як це — жити в холодній північній країні, серед непроглядних смерекових лісів, ведмедів і снігових заметів, де зима така темна і тягуча, що здається нескінченною, велике озеро крижаніє настільки міцно, що по ньому можна їхати навпростець до сусідньо [...]

      As a young girl growing up in Sweden, I loved to read Nobel laureate Lagerlöf, and I was captivated with her ability to weave mysticism into her stories. She often let the reader determine the driving force behind her story, and this was long before paranormal literature became the huge genre it is today. I remember wishing I could write like that, and I believe she was the one who taught me to trust the reader and to let readers interpret the story in their own way.

      The book, written by Selma Lagerlöf, takes place in her beloved Värmland, in Sweden, in the 1820’s. The main character, Gösta Berling, a deposed priest, is saved from dying from hunger and cold by the Mistress of Ekeby. He then becomes one of the pensioners at the mansion.The book, which is Selma Lagerlöf’s debut novel, was published in 1891. Selma Lagerlöf was a very famous Swedish author and the first woman who received the Nobel Prize in literature.The book contains more romanticism [...]

      3.5 :) d'une écriture somptueuse, lagerlof imagine une légende aux multiples contes et revirements. j'ai beaucoup aimé l'aspect théâtral des descriptions et de l'entrée en matière de chaque chapitre. un gros creux au milieu dans le rythme des histoires m'a fait un peu décrocher, mais l'attachant gosta berling reprend davantage vie dans le dernier tiers du roman. belle découverte!

      These tales gather in sophistication. They seem almost crude at first. My Penguin translation of 2011 seems to struggle to describe this work, and I do too. ‘Sweeping historical epic’, in the book description, won’t do for this interweave of stories, and if, like me, you look askance at the ‘string of women who fall under Gösta's spell’, you may, like me, yet be glad you pursued your curiosity nevertheless. The back of my book even sells it as ‘the Swedish Gone With the Wind’. Plo [...]

    13. Sverre on said:

      This book is a great work of art from many readers’ points of view. Probably it is, but one should probably be somewhat suspicious when a Swedish author received a Nobel Prize, awarded by a Swedish committee consisting of privileged academics. I grew up hearing about this book, and, coincidentally, my grandmother came from Värmland, the setting of the book. For decades I had ignored this work so its time had come—or so I thought. Well, as it turned out, I should have resisted longer.This is [...]

    14. Virtuella on said:

      One of the most charming and intriguing books that I've read in a long time. Not exactly a novel, rather a collection of (sometimes closely, sometimes loosely) linked short stories; I've never seen anything quite like it. I loved the ambivalence of it, floating between folk tale and family anecdote, and how sometimes a later story would throw a different light on something that was said earlier. I enjoyed how various characters took centre stage in turn and appeared later as minor players in som [...]

      An interesting collection of stories of people in a region in Sweden. Mixing the superstitions of folklore with the trials of life makes for an interesting tale.

      OMG JAG HAR LÄST UT DEN!!!!! Ett tag tvivlade jag faktiskt att jag skulle orka läsa klart den år 2015, haha Men det gjorde jag faktiskt, och det känns väldigt skönt och bra :D Så vad tyckte jag egentligen om Gösta Berlings saga? Tja så mycket kan jag säga att det lätt är årets största läsutmaningsprestation! För varje kapitel är det som en ny berättelse, om nya personer och deras liv och öden. Att hålla reda på alla är ganska svårt bara det, och att komma in i den något s [...]

      La Légende de Gösta Berling est le premier livre de Selma Lagerlöf, lauréate du prix Nobel de littérature en 1909.Écrite en 1891, La Légende de Gösta Berling est une épopée fantastique où se retrouve déjà tous les ingrédients qui ont fait le succès du Merveilleux Voyage de Nils Holgersson : mythes, nature, romantisme.« Enfin, voilà le pasteur en chaire… Les paroissiens relevèrent la tête. Ah, ah, le voilà pourtant ! Il y aurait donc un service aujourd’hui : ce ne serait p [...]

      The author won the Nobel Prize for Literature for this novel, so maybe it reads better in the original Swedish, or it might be that I just couldn't get into the cultural mind-set of late nineteenth century Sweden, but I came to greatly dislike this book long before I managed to get to the end of it. The book begins with Gosta Berling being defrocked as a minister due to him being a drunkard. The book continues with a succession of chapters, which constitute more a series of short stories than th [...]

      Книжка для дуууже повільного читання. Я цього відразу не знала, і підганяла себе, хоча все рівно вийшло на два місяці. А ви не підганяйте. Цією скандинавською романтичною естетикою треба насолоджуватись, та якомога довше розтягувати. Можна читати по одній притчі на ніч. І ць [...]

      Larger-than-life Swedish epic, with some great images. Not sure how well her beautiful poetic Swedish translates though - maybe this is why the book is virtually unknown in English.

    21. Svalberd on said:

      An exceptional tale of strife, love, magic, and religion. Very well written, although I am sure the original Swedish edition is much more flowing and wonderful. To the point, the author really pulls me in with her poetic language and then crafts in a rather thoughtful story within that. Lagerlöf has the perfect ratio of dialogue to description, and I can see her bringing these words to life in some quiet study with the light on at midnight. She seems to take pieces from her own life and age and [...]

      Selma Lagerlof was the first woman to win the Nobel Prize for literature so I have always been curious about her work but had never given it the time it deserved. The Saga of Gosta Berling one of her most well known works is an unexpected surprise-a series of morality tales with a heavy dose of magic realism.The reader follows Gosta Berling a defrocked Minister-he leaves due to his requiring alcohol to avoid the poverty and starkness of his position to being saved by the Majoress and becoming on [...]

      At first, I had an impression of a book for children, written in a childish style. My impression was, if I had grandchildren, I could read this book at bedtime.However, as the reading was progressing, maybe I was getting used to the style, maybe the subject of the tales that, put together, make the novel, were growing more "adult", I felt in love whit this book.All the time it is in somewhere between reality, fantasy, magic, fairy tale Some hundred years later, somebody invented the expression [...]

    24. Andrei on said:

      I am new to this author, motivated by her Nobel prize won. I had high expectations on this novel and they were met from the first pages. I admit it was harder to understand that it is a fictional book with a fictional story (what am I talking most books are fictional). This author really has a strong imagination! The novel can be regarded as well as a collection of short stories connected between them. It is also hard to fit this work into a certain genre, it has romance, fantasy, magic even sur [...]

      "Die Saga von Gösta Berling" (1891) ist eine Zusammenstellung vieler kurzer, chronologisch zusammenhängender Geschichten, die in den 1820er Jahren in Värmland spielen. Untypisch für die Erscheinungszeit enthält die "Saga" (Schwedisch für "Märchen") viele eben märchenhafte Elemente; so wird ein Pakt mit dem Teufel geschlossen, oder der Protagonist verliebt sich alle paar Tage unsterblich - natürlich immer auf den ersten Blick. Konträr dazu treten viele starke Frauenfiguren auf, die sich [...]

      I just closed the final page of this book.I began reading Saga of Gösta Berling, because it is one of my mother's most favourite books.I have never read such a story, written so beautifully,every word is blossoming in your mind and you see the landscapes, you feel the the cold harsh winter, the warmth of Midsumer, you hear the roaring waves, the hammering, the sleigh bellsYou suffer along side with the characters on their jounrey.After every chapter, I had to stop for a while and reflect of wha [...]

      Selma Lagerlöf flätar samman en massa gamla sägner och berättelser till en saga utan dess like. Ingen som läser detta kan göra det oberörd.

      The vignettes are interesting, but the book suffers from a dull translation, making it hard to read get into.
