I bow to Selma Lagerlöf! It is hard to describe what Selma Lagerlöf 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 [...]

Tenant farmer Jan loves his daughter Glory Goldie more 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 mag [...]

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. [...]

Il realismo fiabesco di un romanzo consolatorioAttenzione: anticipazioni sulla tramaL'imperatore di Portugallia è il primo romanzo di Selma Lagerlöf che leggo, e non essendo, a detta di molti critici, il suo capolavoro, può 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 così è mi sento di affermare sin da subito che Selma Lagerlöf rap [...]

Struggente, letto tutto d'un fiato. Impossibile staccarsi dai personaggi, dalla storia, dall'amore 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 amore 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 bontà dei signori che si succedono, sia l'armo [...]

"Kejsarn av Portugallien" är en otrolig bok. Skriven för så pass länge sedan och ändå aktuell. Den beskriver människans innersta och den speciella kärleken mellan far och dotter som får oss att bli berörda oavsett tid och rum. Person- och miljöbeskrivningar är fantastiska. Samtidigt är det inte svårläst på något sätt, allt är enkelt och lättfattligt, men ack så vackert.

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 Lagerlöf'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, Swed [...]

A bitersweet epic about a father and his only joy in life; his daugther. For a 200 page story she put in a lot of story,characters,historical realism,important messages,symbolism. Also female characters was more human,well rounded as expected from a female classic writer compared to a male one.Not the best written classic novel but too important story,message to rate 4 stars.

Questa è una favola, una favola amara. La storia dell’amore così sconfinato e sviscerale di un padre per la propria figlia . Jan di Skrolycka scopre l’amore per la sua unica figlia nello stesso istante in cui la prende in braccio per la prima volta. E per un povero contadino delle Askedalar, in cui la terra diventa ghiaccio e attorno ci sono solo montagne, laghi, e venti che li spazzano senza tregua, questa è l’unica felicità che possa riempire il cuore. Vive per Klara Gulla, così bel [...]

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

En ganska sorglig historia om felslagen kärlek och själviskhet. När hans älskade dotter Klara-Gulla flyttar till storstaden blir Jan först besviken och sedan börjar han hitta på allt mer vidlyftiga historier om varför hon aldrig hör av sig. När han till slut får veta vilken bana hon slagit in på, blir han galen och utnämner sig själv til "Kejsaren av Portugallien".

Happiness Beyond Reality: The Emperor of Portugallia by Selma LagerlöfAbridged 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 thei [...]

Forse a ognuno di noi è 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 più forti e sanno spiegare e accettare razionalmente ciò che sta accadendo, oppure non provano quell’amore infinito di Jan verso la figlioletta. Ma quando la separazione è inaccettabile, inaccessibile, inspiegabile, allora al posto del dolore e dalla lacerazione può arrivare l’Imperatore di [...]

Fem hela stjärnor från mig är både ovanligt och lite exhalterande, i alla fall från min egna sida. Selma Lagerlöfs bok Kejsaren av Portugallien är värd båda dessa känslor. Boken handlar om Jan, en man från de småländska bygderna, som måste ta itu sina känslor att lämna över sin dotter Klara till världen - i detta fall till Stockholm. Lagerlöfs språk målar upp en bild av alla Jans känslor, från de minsta till de största, från kärleken till sin dotter till hatet mot rykte [...]

Şi într-o zi, cum stătea el supărat, murat de ploaie şi pătruns de ger, o veste i-a luminat chipul şi viaţa: nevasta lui născuse o fetiţă.

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. Lagerlöf writes in a realistic way and it's easy to see [...]

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. Lagerlöf 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. Lagerlöf has a very particular style, somewhere bet [...]

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 [...]

Jag tycker om boken, mycket för att jag tycker om Lagerlöf som författare, men samtidigt stör jag mig lite på just berättarstilen. Den är kortfattad och gestaltande, precis som jag brukar gilla, men jag känner inte att jag riktigt lär känna karaktärerna. Man vet inte riktigt när man får tolka utifrån Jans perspektiv eller från ett berättarperspektiv. Sedan har man kanske vant sig att läsa mer djuplodande psykologiska romanen. Men om man ska tolka det mer som sägen så är det e [...]

It is filled with familial love and realizations of what happiness is too late. There are some bumps (Lagerlöf 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.

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.
