marbled boards with red cloth spine; brightly coloured frontis, illustration by Einar Nerman with four more through the book (all tipped-in); Dottern Klara Fina Gulleborg är livets ljus för den värmländske torparen Jan i Skrotlycka. När hon ger sig iväg till storstaden och dras till det lättsinniga livet där spränger hans vanmäktiga faderskärlek allt förstånd, och han vandrar in i vansinnets rike: han blir ?Kejsarn av Portugallien?. Selma Lagerlöfs geniala förening av berättarbegåvning och psykologisk insikt når en höjdpunkt i denna roman från 1914. The novel takes place in 1860 or 1870 in Lagerlöf's native Värmland and is about the tenant farmer Jan in Skrolycka and his daughter Glory Goldie Sunnycastle. He loves his daughter more than anything else, but after she moves to Stockholm at age 17, she stops sending letters home. The father sinks into a dream world where he imagines she has become a noble empress of "Portugallia", and he thus also a great Emperor himself. His whole life is dominated by thoughts of her return, and what then will happen. In his role as Emperor residing in the poor countryside, he can challenge the area's social hierarchies: wearing his imperial regalia, he sits at the front of the church, takes place at the head table at parties and tries to socialize with local landlords. contents list to the rear.
