Atterbom, Per Daniel Amadeus


Born Jan. 19, 1790, in Åsbo; died July 21,1855, in Uppsala. Swedish poet.

Atterbom was one of the representatives of the so-called phosphorists (from the name of the journal Phosphoros, in the publication of which Atterbom participated). They represented the reactionary trend in Swedish romanticism. In his dramatized fairy tale The Blue Bird (1814), in the romantic drama The Isle of Bliss (1824–27), and in his narrative poems and romances Atterbom used plots and characters drawn from folklore. He also wrote the book Swedish Seers and Skalds (1841–55).

Atterbom's Astolf, to whom his lover Felicia appears in innumerable personifications:
Female subjects have been studied on very few occasions so far (Bishop and Claudius, 2005; Kozak-Collins et al., 1994; McNaughton et al., 1997; Tiryaki and Atterbom, 1995) and the data concerning the effect of ingestion of alkalinizers on performance in female athletes are inconsistent.
This finding is in agreement with the results of the study conducted by Tiryaki and Atterbom (1995) who reported no effect of sodium citrate or sodium bicarbonate ingestion in comparison with placebo administration on performance in 600-m run in young female track athletes.

According to Runyan and Atterbom (1990), "Exercise training can reduce the prevalence of many of the conditions that promote cardiovascular disease and that limit functional capacity in dialysis patients" (p.
Increased exercise has additional physical benefits particularly relevant to hemodialysis patients including improved lipid metabolism, glucose tolerance, and insulin sensitivity (Runyan & Atterbom, 1990).
Although Muller befriended August Sigismund Ruhl (Deutsche Romantik, II, 1476), one of the few Nazarenes who actually broke his bond with the brotherhood, he seems to have found the company of Per Daniel Amadeus Atterbom, the Swedish Romantic, more congenial.
Other works are Blommorna (1812; "The Flowers"), a cycle of poems envisioning eternal life beyond death; the unfinished Fagel bla (1814; "The Blue Bird"); and the six-volume Svenska siare och skalder (1841-55; "Swedish Prophets and Poets"), a six-volume work distinguished for its style and erudition that earned Atterbom the rank of Sweden's first great literary historian.
