"«Lo que hace tan apasionantes los cuentos de Dagerman es la conceptualización de la ficción corta como un vehículo moral, con una capacidad para generar empatía, identificación y compromiso.» Steven Hartman, New York Review of Books. Este libro reúne los mejores cuentos del escritor sueco Stig Dagerman. Un tema central recorre toda su obra y toda su vida: la solidaridad como idea suprema, principio ético y compromiso responsable. Hijo de la clase obrera, desde niño pudo saborear la dicha de la fraternidad en medio de los estragos de la Gran Depresión; en algún lugar escribe que toda su infancia fue un interminable convoy de pordioseros. En este contexto merece especial mención su solidaridad con la España republicana y con los represaliados de la dictadura franquista. Su casa fue lugar de encuentro de numerosos antifascistas y miembros de las Brigadas Internacionales. Los veinticinco relatos que componen este libro reflejan los conflictos y angustias que definieron a toda una generación: la que fue testigo del último suspiro de una forma de vida eminentemente agrícola y que vivió los desastres de la II Guerra Mundial." -- Cubierta

Island of the doomed by Stig Dagerman( Book )

56 editions published between 1946 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the summer of 1946, while secluded in August Strindberg's small cabin in the Stockholm archipelago, Stig Dagerman wrote Island of the Doomed . This novel was unlike any other yet seen in Sweden and would establish him as the country's brightest literary star. To this day it is a singular work of fiction-a haunting tale that oscillates around seven castaways as they await their inevitable death on a desert island populated by blind gulls and hordes of iguanas. At the center of the island is a poisonous lagoon, where a strange fish swims in circles and devours anything in its path. As we are

Dagsedlar by Stig Dagerman( Book )

43 editions published between 1954 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stig Dagerman publicerade omkring 1350 dagsverser. De första verserna skrev han på hösten 1943 under signaturen Qroll. Den sista lämnade han in på tidningen Arbetarens redaktion dagen före självmordet 1954. Bengt Holmqvist skrev om Dagermans Dagsedlar i Stockholms-Tidningen: "Indignationen var hela tiden lika stark, medkänslan lika levande, ironin lika frän och lika fullständigt fri från cynism. Men först nu när man läser ett representativt urval av dagsedlarna i följd, märker man den stigande linjen i denna produktion: hur kvickheten blir allt rörligare, hur spändheten förvandlas till lätthet, hur skärpan alltmer tvångslöst förenar sig med en briljant fantasilek.

L'ENFANT BRULE by Stig Dagerman( Book )

11 editions published between 1956 and 2011 in French and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On enterre une femme à deux heures ... C'est par ces mots que comme L'Enfant brûlé, le chef-d'oeuvre de Stig Dagerman, qui date de 1948. En effet, la mère est morte, laissant un mari et un fils de vingt ans. Qui était-elle en dehors de cette rumeur quotidienne dont elle remplissait la maison? Trop tard pour le savoir. Désormais, son absence va prendre un poids que n'avait pas sa présence, suscitant entre père et fils d'étranges rapports faits de questions tacites, de suspicion mutuelle, de jalousie et de haine, mais aussi d'amour. Lire Dagerman - ce Rimbaud du Nord qui mit fin à ses jours en 1954, alors qu'il n'avait que trente et un an et que, depuis longtemps, il se taisait - c'est lire un écrivain majeur, l'un de ces auteurs sont la voix a la vertu de raccourcir à la seconde des distances entre lecteur et auteur, instaurant entre eux les liens de complicité les plus étroits, commandant un irrésistible mouvement de sympathie. Ardent et précis à la fois, l'écrivain jette ses filets au plus profond de nous-mêmes, ramenant à la surface nos secrets les plus troubles et les moins avouables. Tandis que, sur fond de rues enneigées, d'archipels lisses et de soleils froids, des personnages ravagés de passion se dressent, à jamais inoubliables, comme dans un film qui serait le plus beau film d'Ingmar Bergman, ce compatriote de Dagerman, " l'Enfant brûlé "
Sleet : selected stories by Stig Dagerman( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a superb collection of stories by Stig Dagerman, one of the most talented writers of Sweden's post-war generation. Stig Dagerman (1923-1954) is regarded as the most talented young writer of the Swedish post-war generation. By the 1940s, his fiction, plays, and journalism had catapulted him to the forefront of Swedish letters, with critics comparing him to William Faulkner, Franz Kafka, and Albert Camus. His suicide at the age of thirty-one was a national tragedy. This selection, containing a number of new translations of Dagerman's stories never before published in English, is unified by the theme of the loss of innocence. Often narrated from a child's perspective, the stories give voice to childhood's tender state of receptiveness and joy tinged with longing and loneliness. The title story, To Kill A Child , is the most famous of Dagerman's short stories and among the most anthologized and oft-read stories in Sweden
