Care and exploitation- about animals, nature, language and narrative in Selma Lagerlöf’s Nils Holgerssons underbara resa genom Sverige

Starting points for my research project is an interest in how the migratory bird motif is processed and treated in literature (especially in poetry) and other forms of artistic expression. Currently I am studying how Selma Lagerlof exploited the subject in the novel Nils Holgersson's Wonderful Adventures in Sweden (1906-1907).
