Hjalmar Bergman (1883-1931) is one of the classics of Swedish literature, the author of numerous novels and plays. Along with Selma Lagerlöf, he is also one of the first Swedish writers whose works were filmed.
The current collection includes 4 of his plays: "His Grace's Will" (1930), "Swedenhielms" (1924), considered the Swedish national comedy, "Mr Sleeman Is Coming" (1917) - a cruel fairy tale play, "The Tale" (1919) – a half-realistic, half-symbolic drama.
Hjalmar Bergman (1883-1931) is considered Sweden's best playwright since August Strindberg (1849-1912). But even as a comedian he remains unsurpassed to this day and his plays continue to parade on Swedish stages.
Hjalmar Bergman left us forever at the age of 47, bequeathing us 30 theater plays, 10 radio plays, 30 film scripts and 23 novels.
