The Bullerby books and tradition

  • Björn Sundmark


The Bullerby series (1947, 1949, 1952) is as a whole one of Lindgren’s most autobiographical narratives, and, among Swedes, one of the best loved. But the attitude towards “Bullerby” has undergone interesting permutations over time. Today, “Bullerby” is frequently seen as a regressive wish-fulfilment fantasy. But this was not how the books were regarded when they were first published.
