Abstract [en]

The correspondence of the Swedish Romanticists is still largely unpublished. By publishing and discussing one of the many letters, I wish to illustrate some of the benefits of making the Romanticists’ correspondence available in critical editions. In this section, a letter from Lorenzo Hammarsköld to C. F. Dahlgren, written in 1823, is edited and commentated. The edition is preceded by an introduction, where I point to the important role that Hammarsköld played in Romantic literary networks. The letter reveals new information regarding the publication of several Romantic works, including Almqvist’s Amorina (1822). Further, Hammarsköld’s letter is discussed as an example of a particular epistolary style among the Swedish Romanticists, marked by humour and allegories that often imply a close knowledge of the reader.
