Barbro Lindgren´s bibliography 2014

Documents   •   Mar 25, 2014 12:30 UTC

Barbro Lindgren är en litterär nydanare. Hon har med språklig djärvhet och psykologisk nyansrikedom förnyat inte bara bilderboken för de allra minsta utan också den absurda prosaberättelsen, den existentiella barndikten och den realistiska ungdomsskildringen. Med absolut gehör gestaltar hon såväl ljusa lyckoögonblick och lekfulla upptåg som livets gåtfullhet och dödens närhet.
