Sister and brother : a family story by Agneta Pleijel( )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using old letters, records, and stories passed down through her family, Pleijel imagines the lives of her great-grandfather, Albert Berg (1832–1916), and his younger sister, Helena Berg Petre (1834–1880), who were born into a prominent musical family. Albert was born deaf, dashing his father’s hopes of a musical career for him. He was sent to Stockholm’s Manilla School for the Deaf, where he learned sign language. He later studied art and became a painter of seascapes. His interest in improving the lives of deaf people led him to become an advocate for the Deaf community and to cofound the Stockholm Deaf Association. Helena showed early musical talent and, trained by her father, was a gifted singer. She lived in Paris for a time and enjoyed popular success. She fell in love with a musician but was plunged into despair when he died from cholera. Her father persuaded her to give up singing and marry a cold industrialist, who was one of the wealthiest men in Sweden, in order to provide financial support for the family. Helena struggled in the loveless marriage and battled depression throughout her life. Despite their disparate lives, Albert and Helena faced similar struggles with communication, autonomy, and self-determination. Albert’s story traces the development of his own sense of identity as well as the development of Swedish Deaf culture, while Helena’s life reflects the silencing and oppression endured by women. In Sister and Brother, Pleijel’s literary treatment of their lives sheds light on the cultural and social norms that shaped the experiences of deaf people and women in the 19th century."--Publisher's description

Litteratur för amatörer by Agneta Pleijel( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in Swedish and Undetermined and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Varför litteratur för amatörer? Jag tror för att amatör är ett så underbart mångtydligt ord, enligt ordboken älskare, icke-professionell, vän, lekman, liebhaber, vurmare. Jo, jag har varit kritiker, är också författare, men när jag läser är det som amatör. Och när jag har skrivit om litteratur har jag velat tala till andras läsare utifrån mig själv. I höstas när jag skulle röja upp hemma fann jag de gulnade klippen. Skulle jag slänga alltsammans? Eller se efter vad där stod? Det var att möta mig själv. Vem var jag? Var jag inte som ung odrägligt brådmogen? Förmodligen. Försökte jag inte framstå som lite klyftigare än jag i själva verket var? Säkert. Jag gjorde ett urval. Ganska strängt, jag har skrivit mycket. Kriteriet var artiklar om författare och författarskap som betytt något viktigt för mig. Litteraturen har varit en vägvisare till konsten att leva. Urvalet bygger på det jag skrivit om litteratur i nästan 40 år, från 60-tal till idag, dagskritik och essäer. I det jag valt ut syns min lidelse och också tidens väderomslag, tidsandans verkningar och ideologins intrång. Jag står rätt främmande för den distanserade, lite svala litteraturkritik som förlorar läsandets verkliga betydelse ur sikte. Och mot den kritik som pådyvlar författaren en påstådd agenda. Jag vill gärna se boken som ett samtal om litteratur. Det är en intim sak, man tvingas vara uppriktig, man avtäcker sig själv. Det mesta i Litteratur för amatörer handlar om svensk litteratur, ofta samtida med min tids- och livshorisont, i den meningen en generationsbok, men också om vissa klassiker och några favoriter bland polska författare. Det finns ett par längre partier om ett par diktare, Tomas Tranströmer och Birgitta Trotzig, vars språk och tankar hjälpt mig mer än andra

Spådomen : en flickas memoarer by Agneta Pleijel( Book )

11 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in Swedish and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Agneta Pleijel skriver om en ung jente som en gang var henne. Boka spenner fra fødselen i 1940 og tjue år frem. Ledemotivet er en kjær tantes spådom som har blitt oppfylt og som jenta følger med spenning. Barndommen er preget av flytting. Jenta er opptatt av lesing; bøker gir ord til eksistensens vaghet, det kvinnelige kjønn, de oppsiktsvekkende forskjellene på folk. Far er matematiker, mor er musiker og de er svært forskjellige. Sakte går det opp for henne at hun har vokst opp med en løgn. Hun må beskytte seg selv og de to yngre søstrene og ikke tråkke feil i den krigssonen som foreldrenes ekteskap representerer. Hun tror på mirakel, magi og transformasjon. Hendelsene utspiller seg i en forstad til Stockholm, i USA og i Lund. En historie om jakten på sannhet, moral, et sted i verden
