About this site
This site is dedicated to the study of Viktor Rydberg, his life and works.
The site is my private project. I am responsible for all content, and all errors, therein.
The site uses Style sheets (CSS) and conforms to the XHTML1.0 standard. Frames are used.
The pages have been designed for a screen resolution of at least 800x600. There are no cookies.
Use of version 5 or later of Internet Explorer or Netscape is recommended.
There is an extensive scholarly literature on Rydberg (almost wholly written in Swedish).
I've read it all... Some of the most important titles are listed in the
section of the site. But in the end all views and interpretations are my own.
These pages are the work of an amateur. I am a librarian at the Chalmers university of technology;
my academic background includes Physics and History but not Literature. I have published a paper in
, the journal of studies in Swedish literature, and a number of shorter studies in
, the journal of the Viktor Rydberg Society.
I have also written a book - Den trogne smugglaren
(Atlantis, 2005) - on the use of symbols in Rydberg's prose and poetry.
I appreciate comments and suggestions on this site, as well as all kind of questions on
Rydberg and his works.
