Per Daniel Amadeus Atterbom

Per Daniel Amadeus Atterbom (January 19 1790July 21 1855) was a Swedish romantic poet, and a member of the Swedish Academy.

Professor of Aesthetics and Philosophy at the University of Uppsala, he represents one of the most subversive tendencies of Swedish Romanticism, reflecting the aesthetic-religious revolution and the conservative-nationalistic devolution up to the medieval utopias.

He was extremely influenced by German Romanticism, especially Schelling, whom he met during his trip to German and Italy in 1817-1819.

Poetry:

  • Blommorna (The Flowers)
  • Fågel Blå (Blue Bird) 1813
  • Lycksalighetens Ö (The Island of Happiness) 1824-27
