The literary things of Sweden seem well established at the frontier of my "ultraminor" World Literature, even if, as I verify and organise the pieces of information I used to have, I discover that many writer I associated with Sweden are in fact Norwegian. Namely Ibsen and Hamsun, authors that occupied my shelves since time immemorial. Was Swedenborg a Swede? Oh, at least he did. As well as Bridget of Sweden. And Astrid Lindgren Pipi Longstocking. And of course, the Bullerby Children. And Moomins (although they are half-Finnish). I'm surprised how Swedish my Polish childhood in fact was.
