The Victoria Lives! website was created in 2000 by the Swedish Program at Colombia University to celebrate the life and work of one of Sweden's most significant 19th-century women writers, Victoria Benedictsson (1850-1888). Publishing as Ernst Ahlgren, Benedictsson wrote short stories, novels and plays, often in a Naturalist style, as well as substantial diaries, and her work typically engages with proto-feminist themes in a fresh and unconventional way. In her lifetime she was a controversial figure because of her relationship with the leading Danish literary critic Georg Brandes and her suicide following the end of their affair. However, this website aims to widen knowledge of Benedictsson's literary achievement and to establish her importance as an exemplar of the Modern Breakthrough in Scandinavian literature. The material here includes a brief biography, a chronology of dates relating to Benedictsson and to significant events in Scandinavian women's history, and a scholarly bibliography of works by and about Benedictsson. There are links to electronic editions of Benedictsson's fiction and drama in English translation, including extracts from the novel Money; the novella Spellbound; several short stories; two plays; and diary extracts. There is also a link to Project Runeberg's online editions of Benedictsson's works in the original Swedish. Excerpts of novels by Swedish women contemporary with Benedictsson are also provided, in English translation, as well as a gallery of photos portraying Benedictsson, her family and friends. Victoria Lives! provides Anglophone readers with unique resources with which to explore Victoria Benedictsson's work and its cultural context.
