For the first time ever, cutting-edge research about the Swedish Nobel Laureate Selma Lagerlöf and her work is made available to a world-wide audience in one comprehensive volume. Written by an international group of scholars, this book highlights the interdisciplinarity of current Lagerlöf research which frequently cuts across genres, media and disciplines. The perspectives and structure of the book, with sections dedicated to performance, film and intermediality, transnational narratives and European transmissions, are reinforced by the extensive introductory portal. The authors explore themes such as Lagerlöf in cultural and political contexts, her involvement in the women's movement, the construction of her celebrity persona, her role for early Swedish film, the transnationality of her work and its impact in international contexts. The volume includes a number of illustrations that are rarely reproduced, and the detailed bibliographical section will contribute to making this an indispensable platform for Lagerlöf scholarship for years to come. It also offers a model for interdisciplinary research in the arts and humanities.
