Sofia Margareta von Knorring (1797–1848)

Knorring, Sofia Margareta von (knor’ing). A Swedish novelist; born Sept. 29, 1797; died on Feb. 13, 1848. Unlike Fredrika Bremer, who described middle-class life, she was the novelist of Swedish society. Her best works were: ‘Kusinerna’; ‘Axel’; ‘Class Parallels’; ‘A Peasant and his Surroundings,’ the only novel in which she treats of middle or lower class life.
