Summary
"In 1909, Selma Lagerlof became the first woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. The Saga of Gosta Berling is her first and best-loved novel - and the basis for the 1924 silent film of the same name that launched Greta Garbo into stardom. A defrocked minister, Gosta Berling finds a home at an ironworks estate that also houses an assortment of eccentric veterans of the Napoleonic Wars. His defiant and poetic spirit proves magnetic to a string of women, who fall under his spell in this sweeping historical epic set against the backdrop of the magnificent wintry beauty of rural Sweden."--BOOK JACKET
