About this theme

This theme highlights a few of our articles treating of writers whose work has been translated into English. They range in time from Birgitta of Vadstena (1303-1373) to Suzanne Brøgger (1944-), and all five countries in the Nordic Region are represented.

Here is modernist poetry in the works of Edith Södergran, Karin Boye, and Inger Christensen; groundbreaking narrative works by Sigrid Undset, Selma Lagerlöf, and Karen Blixen; and world-famous children's literature in the works of Astrid Lindgren and Tove Jansson. And a whole lot more. 

We hope you will find inspiration for further reading in the rich and varied tradition of Nordic women's literature.
