5.0 out of 5 stars Lowenskold Ring - the start and the end of a family's life, 30 Oct 2001
This review is from: The Lowenskold Ring (Series B: English Translations of Works of Scandinavian Literature) (Paperback)
Lowenskold was a well known general and received a ring from the king. His last wish was that the ring would go with him to his grave, and it was granted. But before the soil of his grave dried, there was another burial, and the grave had to be opened. A thief came and stole the ring. The young Lowenskold did not care too much about the lost of the ring at first, but after he heard that the thief had confessed, he got angry. In his anguish, he murdered 3 innocent men.
The story afterwards, had nothing to do with the ring, except that there was a dark cloud raising in the family, haunting the members of the family to their marriages and children.
This story was about love and how to win love, and whether love chose us, or we have to choose love. Charlotte Lowenskold was falling in love with her cousin, a priest. However, after a few misunderstanding, her cousin got so angry with her, telling her as a liar, an unfaithful woman and he married to another girl. Charlotte was married to another man that she did not love before, but after her marriage, she was heavily falling in love with her husband.
Selma Lagerlof would like us to open our heart to forgiveness as shown by Charlotte. Opening our heart to someone that had disappointed us greatly, accusing us, and torturing us does not have anything to do with the status as a religious person, but it is in each of our heart.
