Dagerman, Stig


Born Oct. 5, 1923, in Elvkarleby; died Nov. 4. 1954, in Enebyberg. near Stockholm. Swedish author. Son of a miner.

Dagerman’s first novel. The Snake (1945), reflected the mood of fear and despair produced by World War II. In his novel The Isle of the Damned (1946),Dagerman symbolically portrayed a humanity that had survived the war but expected an even more terrible catastrophe. His novellas (the collection Night Games, 1947)and his novel Woes of a Wedding (1949), which were less pessimistic in spite of the author’s predilection for symbolism, displayed realistic tendencies, humor, and the satirical side of Dagerman’s talents.
