a Swedish romantic poet, and a member of the Swedish Academy.

Professor of Aesthetics and Philosophy at the University of Uppsala, he represents one of the most subversive tendencies of Swedish Romanticism, reflecting the aesthetic-religious revolution and the conservative-nationalistic devolution up to the medieval utopias.

He was extremely influenced by German Romanticism, especially Schelling, whom he met during his trip to Germany and Italy in 1817-1819. ..
