Short biography
Hedvig Charlotta Nordenflycht was born in Stockhom, the daughter of a civil servant who was raised to the nobility in 1727. She received a high level of education during which she read philosophy, theology, Latin and German. In 1741, she married Jacob Fabricius, a military vicar, who died a few months afterwards. She established the first Swedish literary salon in Stockholm and helped introduce the ideas of the Enlightenment to Swedish society. Hedvig experimented with the ode and the epic forms before returning to lyric poetry in the last years of her life; she is best remembered for her love poetry. In 1752 she was awarded a government pension in recognition of her literary contributions.
