    Man tar vanliga ord - Att läsa om Astrid Lindgren

    Author:Lena Törnqvist
    Publisher:Astrid Lindgren Text

    "The quote in the title ("You take ordinary words and say unusual things") comes from the philosopher Schopenhauer, and Astrid Lindgren sometimes used it to describe her work. Not everyone probably agrees that her words were ordinary - there are also words that looking in vain for in the dictionaries But what is certain is that what she said was unusual, and has influenced - and influences - people of all ages both in Sweden and around the world.Astrid Lindgren is never finished, her texts open up new vistas and give new insights with each re-reading. Lena Törnqvist has spent the last thirty years reading and rereading the books. She reports here some of what she found, supplemented with quotes from Astrid Lindgren's own letters and archives left behind. It's about language, politics, gender roles, the love of Stockholm, tyrants, master socialists, motherly Amazons and much, much more."

      Astrid Lindgren in Norway

      The first to bring Astrid Lindgren's books abroad was the publisher Damm & Søn in Oslo, with their Norwegian edition of "Pippi Longstocking" already appearing in 1946. This marked the beginning of a long-standing relationship. Today, most of her books in Norway are published by Cappelen Damm, a publishing house formed through the merger of Cappelen and Damm. Astrid's book adaptations into films also became popular in Norway, as did her famous songs. One of Astrid Lindgren's favorite books was "Hunger" by the Norwegian author Knut Hamsun; she often mentioned it as one of her greatest reading experiences.
