Known internationally for her children's story The Wonderful Adventures of Nils (1906-07) she was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1909 "in appreciation of the lofty idealism, vivid imagination and spiritual perception that characterize her writings. " She began her first novel, The Story of Gosta Berling (1891) while working as a teacher in Landskrona.
