Herbert Tingsten in Sweden and Sonja Hagemann in Norway have written about the tremendous influence of schools on the cultural and social landscape of Scandinavia. This study focuses on the forest and the way it was portrayed in words and pictures in Norwegian and Swedish elementary school readers from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century. What emerges is a coherent image of the forest as a prevalent element of the Scandinavian landscape, which has provided shelter and sustinence for Norwegians and Swedes since time immemorial. The attitude promoted in both Norwegian and Swedish readers is one of, what Naess refers to as, ecospheric democracy, recognizing the interconnectedness of life and landscape. The stories and pictures in the readers show several important things: 1) that knowledge about the forest and its ways was considered an essential prerequisite to sensible stewardship, which in turn would lead to a healthy, happy way of life, 2) the forest was used to model an ideal [social democratic/bourgeois] society beginning in the 1890s, and 3) adult editors of the readers evidenced through their selections a markedly nostalgic attitude toward earlier times, beginning with readers from the 1890s. The material in this study is drawn most heavily from two sources: Nordahl Rolfsen's Reader for the Folk Schools (Lasebog for Folkeskolen) published in Norway, and Reading Book for the Folk School (Lasebok for Folkskolan) published in Sweden. Rolfsen's Reader was the most widely used reader in Norway, from its initial publication in 1894 until the last revised edition of 1939, and was in use through the 1940s. Nordahl Rolfsens «Lasebok for folkeskolen»? Lesebok over alle leseboker - fra den gangen der bare var en, felles for flere generasjoner nordmenn. Nest etter Bibelen, har vel ingen annen bok i Norge vunnet sa stor lesekrets. Fra 1892, da den forste kom ut og fram til midten av 1950-tallet, ble den trykt i mer enn 8 mill enheter. Bokene ble lest i stumper og filler og tilslutt umulig a oppdrive. Etter nar 60 ar var det slutt. Vemodig, men sikkert nodvendig. Visste du at Nordahl Rolfsen (1849-1928) ogsa i hoy grad var et levende menneske? Som dromte om a bli dikter, men som fikk sitt livsverk knyttet til det a demme opp for latinskolens blinde pugg... Hans trylleformular ble fortellinger «til a holde av», fri for moralisering og skjematisk larebokstoff. Kan man huskes for noe bedre enn dette? Navn: Nordahl Rolfsen (1848-1928) Yrke: Forfatter og pedagog Bosted: Bergen og Oslo Bakgrunn: Nordahl Rolfsen har forst og fremst satt spor etter seg med "Lesebok for Folkeskolen", som i sin tid var det mest brukte skoleverket i Norge, og har kommet ut i flere utgaver. Rolfsen var opptatt av at barne- og ungdomslitteraturen matte bli mer synlig, og satte derfor sammen et bredt utvalg tekster av flere ulike forfattere. Han ga ogsa ut sine egne fortellinger og sanger for barn. Mange av dem er velkjente, som for eksempel "Fola fola blakken". Knowledge is power! My value in life is knowledge and information and I love books! I am a very rural home-based business in THE LAND OF 10,000 LAKES. All my books are acquired through diligent searches of book sales, library sales, garage sales, thrift stores in small towns and magical appearances. I tend to look for books that personally interest me and instill a sense of wonder. Books, for me, have become a never ending source of wonder. My imagination becomes fully engaged and time seems to disappear. I hope that some of the books you may find in my store will do the same for you. Thank you so much for allowing me to share my journey with you.
