The German Literary Achievements of Ola Hansson 1888-1893


David R. Hume

As a member of the Berlin-Friedrichshagen writers' colony, the Swede Ola Hansson both stimulated and guided creative literary thought among the German authors of the 1890's. Hansson's role as an essayist, short story writer, and as a mediator of Scandinavian and wider European influences upon German literature of the times, particularly in its struggle with Naturalism, is documented and assessed.
