Gustav Fröding
Birth: Aug. 22, 1860
Death: Feb. 8, 1911

Noted Swedish Poet. Born 1860 in Alster, Värmland, and was a pioneer in Swedish poetry, liberating the traditional verse from its common pattern. In many ways an outsider, a fact that often marked his writing. He opposed his public image, and revealed such personal secrets like his abuse of alcohol, or that he used to buy love for money. In ”Splashes of grail” he wrote (Free translation): ”I bought my love for money, for nothing else was to get. Sing beautyfully, grating strings, sing beautifully of love once more yet.” His last collection of poems, ”Reconvalescentia”, was published posthumously in 1913, two years after his death in 1911. In spite of his own will, he was celebrated as a national poet upon his death. ”Roses in a broken jar, is still yet roses” (G.Fröding). (bio by: Peter Robsahm)
