She assured her place in Swedish letters with this sweeping historical epic, her first and best-loved novel, and the basis for the 1924 silent film of the same name that launched Greta Garbo to stardom. Set in 1820s Sweden, it tells the story of a defrocked minister named Gsta Berling. After his appetite for alcohol and previous indiscretions end his career, Berling finds a home at Ekeby, an ironworks estate owned by Margareta Celsing, the [Majoress, [ that also houses an assortment of eccentric veterans of the Napoleonic Wars. Berlings defiant and poetic spirit proves magnetic to a string of women, who fall under his spell against the backdrop of political intrigue at Margaretas estate and the magnificent wintry beauty of rural Sweden.
