Anderson, Dan


(Daniel). Born Apr. 6, 1888, in Gran-gärde; died Sept. 16, 1920, in Stockholm. Swedish writer. One of the early representatives of proletarian literature in Sweden. He was a woodcutter, sailor, and coal miner.

In his collections of stories A Collier’s Tales (1914) and It Is Called Superstition (1916), his two-volume autobiographical work Three Homeless Ones (1918) and David Ramm’s Heritage (1919), and his collections of poems Song of a Coal Watchman (1915) and Black Ballads (1917), he portrays the life of the proletariat and denounces the world of moneygrubbers. Religious and philosophical themes permeate many of his works.
