4354. 1849–1851. Fredrika Bremer (1801–1865)

Fredricka Bremer was Sweden’s first woman of letters and first prominent novelist, whose tales of domestic life, at once realistic and sentimental, won her an international reputation during the 1830’s. She spent nearly two years in America, and went in the East from Boston to Savannah, and in the West from St. Paul to New Orleans, with long residences in several parts of the Union. Her title is justified: she saw many American homes from the inside, and her leisurely, kindly, and often long-winded book affords an exceptionally intimate and domestic view. Hawthorne thought her "worthy of being the maiden aunt of the whole human race." Benson supplies an informative introduction, but his selections by no means exhaust the interest of the complete book.
