NICE'S JOURNEY

nisses_resa.webp

Do you love being in nature? Do you think you are in nature too rarely? Does it feel like something is "off" with humans and our civilization? Like we've lost touch with something "original"? Do you yearn for more fresh air, the presence of animals, forests, lakes, rivers, mountains? Same!

 

Perhaps Selma Lagerlöf's "Nils Holgersson's wonderful journey through Sweden" can help us understand and explain that feeling. She investigates man's relationship with animals and nature with the help of a narrative based on equal parts facts, mythology and fantasy. It feels alive and true. She gives everyone a self. Trees, animals, people, the sun, the moon and watercourses.

 

We feel like Nils Holgersson, the mean, lazy and greedy little boy from Västra Vemmenhög. We want to be transformed into tinkerers, to be picked up on the back of a goose and get a glimpse of today's Sweden and thus perhaps also ourselves.
