Contemporary Nordic Authors

This page is a list of the major contemporary literary authors from the five Nordic countries. Genres include novelists, essayists, poets, dramatists, and film writers. These authors and their works form the basis of the University of Minnesota Libraries' contemporary Scandinavian/Nordic literature collection.

Technical notes:

In the Libraries' catalogs and bibliographies, the special characters and modified letters in the Scandinavian languages interfile according to English alphabetical order:
å and ä with a; æ with ae; ø and ö with o, ð with d, and þ with th .

Following the indexes of authors, you will find links for

Identifying new critical literary works in MNCat;
Information on the Libraries' special collections in Scandinavian literatures;
Scandinavian web sites with literary information and writings; and
Links to other Libraries subject pages of interest.

PLEASE NOTE:

The owner of this page has been slow to update the links. However, work has resumed the summer of 2015.
