a child that book that couldn t be replaced that one, special book that has a warm place in your heart till this day well, that s what The Brothers Lionheart by Astrid Lindgren is to me There are times when reality is hard to bear There are times when you wish you would not have to face what is actually happening For all those times, Astrid Lindgren wrote The Brothers Lionheart I must have read it about ten times by now, several times as a child, and several times with my own children, and students I have watched the film, listened to the magical audiobook in which Astrid Lindgren herself reads the story, in that slow, humoristic voice of hers, indicating her Sm land dialect There are times when reality is hard to bear There are times when you wish you would not have to face what is actually happening For all those times, Astrid Lindgren wrote The Brothers Lionheart I must have read it about ten times by now, several times as a child, and several times with my own children, and students I have watched the film, listened to the magical audiobook in which Astrid Lindgren herself reads the story, in that slow, humoristic voice of hers, indicating her Sm land dialect ever so little And I have read quite a few reflections on the book, as well mostly discussions about whether or not she was right to break the taboo of death in a children s adventure book.What remains with me are two things the power of storytelling to make life bearable, and the recurring pattern of human society, regardless of plot, setting, characters and purpose of the story.The first chapter is of the kind that makes you cry helplessly a poor boy with a deadly illness, probably tuberculosis, overhears his mother talking about his expected death Devastated, he confides in his older brother Jonathan, who reassures him that there is a wonderful adventurous life after death, in Nangijala, and that he will just be waiting there until Jonathan joins him Things develop differently, however, and Jonathan dies himself, trying to save his brother from a fire And shortly afterwards, the boys reunite in the wonderful fairytale world of Nangijala So far, so kitsch.But of course Nangijala is a dark place as well, with a village behind a wall, reigned by the evil Tengil and his soldiers, supported by a superpower weapon, a dragon called Katla Nobody will be surprised to hear that the novel was published at the height of the Cold War.I still feel a shiver down my spine when I think of the boys sneaking in behind enemy lines, using the password All makt t Tengil, v r befriare All power to Tengil, our liberator Is it not a universal habit of tyrants that they proclaim themselves liberators From what, I would like to ask from freedom of movement Freedom of choice Peace In the black and white world of Astrid Lindgren s fairytale, the brothers set out to save their world out of the glorious conviction that there are things you have to do, regardless of the danger you encounter Men d sa Jonatan att det fanns saker som man m ste g ra, ven om det var farligt Varf r d , undrade jag Annars r man ingen m nniska utan bara en liten lort , sa Jonatan I don t know if it was such a good thing to do, said Jonathan But there are things you have to do, otherwise you re not a human being, just a piece of dirt They win in the end, and the evil powers of Nangijala are defeated, but at a cost Jonathan was hurt by Katla And this is where the story loses its magical power and credibility for me, and where I feel Astrid Lindgren does not face up to reality, even if it is just the reality you find in a story universe The boys decide to commit suicide to move on to the next world, Nangilima, where the stories are better and life is easier In a chain of eternal worlds, there can be multiple happy or sad endings But I don t particularly like that message, and have always found it hard to convey to my children Not because of the theme of death, but because of the careless attitude towards the reality we currently live in and can t stomach.If we just move on whenever life does not turn out the way we expect it, and move from adventure to adventure, ignoring the fallout of the reality we dodge by seeking an easy way out, there is no real incentive to change the premises of the world we live in for the better, or to try to figure out the reasons for the problems we have, in order to prevent them from getting worse Close your eyes and jump I always thought that was contradictory to the message that you are a piece of dirt if you do not do what you think is right But then again, Astrid Lindgren might have seen clearly what humanity does all the time building walls, fighting over ideology, ignoring bad signs, denying reality and jumping blindly into the future, hoping for the best without ever turning around to learn from history, believing in an afterlife that will be different and better, despite being populated by the same set of characters that populate earth.There is one beautiful idea expressed in the story, that I love reading over and over again Men jag kan inte d da n gon , sa Jonatan, det vet du, Orvar Om alla vore som du , sa Orvar, d skulle ju ondskan f regera i all evinnerlighet Men d sa jag att om alla vore som Jonatan, s skulle det inte finnas n gon ondska But I can t kill anyone, said Jonathan, you know that Orvar If everyone were like you, said Orvar, then evil would rule for all eternity But then I said that if everyone were like Jonathan, then there would be no evil Br derna Lejonhj rta The

greater than myself when I was about ten years old It is, to me, one of the most wonderful stories for children and young teenagers By the time I was 18, I had read it three or four times, later I read it to my oldest daughter and now to my youngest And I still struggled to hold back the tears.It is about the love between two brothers, about life after death, about believing in goodness and fighting evil though that is what I see as an adult now When I was a child and to my own children , it was is simply a magnificent and magical story which had me reading into the small hours of the night, but above all it is about hope With this book alone Astrid Lindgren made an indelible imprint on my childhood Years ago, I taught a course on fantasy fiction during which I had long discussions with my students about the genre My students were educating themselves to become future English teachers, and the fantasy genre is a must in that connection, at least here in Denmark where it has been popular for a long time A school teacher I knew at the time had read this story aloud to her pupils in school and had made sure to tell the children not to throw themselves from tall buildings because there was no such thing as Nangijala the magical place that Karl and Jonatan go to after they die early on in the book, so no spoiler I made it my mission to tell my students never to do any such thing children aren t stupid They know how to distinguish between what s real and what isn t Butimportantly how did she know there is no Nangijala To take away the hope and the magic that such a story offers is to misunderstand what the genre offers, not least this book.Shortly afterwards, my mother died quite unexpectedly Among the many cards I received was one from those same students, in which they sent me their heartfelt condolences and which ended by their assuring me that we believe in Nangijala So even as an adult, this book is among those I will defend with my life and recommend to anyone who ll listen I know I m not the only person to feel this way about The Brothers Lionheart, indeed I believe it s part of the landscape of childhood for many Scandinavians, which just underlines how wondrous and magical Astrid Lindgren was The book that made me who I am today.The one that taught me to stand up for my friends The book that showed me that Somethings you just HAVE to do, or else you are not a real human being, just a little speck of dirt Of course, I read it in the original Swedish, but anyone who has half a mind of reading something truly healing should give this a go in English It is well translated, and she IS, after all, the mother of Pippi Longstockings I rest my case.Jonatan, jag ser ljuset. Well and truly, the first time I read Astrid Lindgren s 1973 fantasy novel The Brothers Lionheart in 1977 titled Br derna Lejonh rta in the Swedish original, although yes, I was reading the novel in German translation I not only found The Brothers Lionheart Die Br der L wenherz a diverting and entertaining reading experience, I in fact and indeed just loved loved loved absolutely everything about the author s, about Astrid Lindgren s narrative and in particular I was also completely in awe Well and truly, the first time I read Astrid Lindgren s 1973 fantasy novel The Brothers Lionheart in 1977 titled Br derna Lejonh rta in the Swedish original, although yes, I was reading the novel in German translation I not only found The Brothers Lionheart Die Br der L wenherz a diverting and entertaining reading experience, I in fact and indeed just loved loved loved absolutely everything about the author s, about Astrid Lindgren s narrative and in particular I was also completely in awe at Lindgren s bravery approaching in a children s novel subjects and topics like death, grief, loss and the concept that even in the so called afterlife, danger and evil can reign supreme and hold sway And indeed, first and foremost, what I have always most appreciated in The Brothers Lionheart is not only the incredibly close and loving personal relationship between strong and healthy older brother Jonathan and his sickly and dying of tuberculosis younger brother Karl since due to major differences of temperament and likes dislikes, my own relationship with my two siblings has sadly never been all that close but also that this absolute love and affection extends even to the afterlife, even to Nangijala and that therefore, when Jonathan and Karl once they are both residing in Nangijala realise that their at first glance idyllic seeming existence there is in fact gravely threatened, they as a brave two person team decide to actively fight against the tyranny and evil of Tengil and his weapon of mass destruction, the dragon Katla Now if I were to rank The Brothers Lionheart only and solely from the perspective of my eleven year old self from when I read the novel in 1977 , I would most definitely and without any doubt whatsoever be choosing a solid five star ranking However, I do have to admit that rereading The Brothers Lionheart as an older and muchcritical adult, albeit that I do still very much enjoy Astrid Lindgren s presented text with Jonathan and Karl s sweet sibling devotion with their bravery and fortitude combatting Tengil and Katla , I am sorry to say that I also tend to consider it somewhat uncomfortable and problematic that Astrid Lindgren seems to at least to older adult I be depicting death and the afterlife as almost something preferable to life in so far that everything about Nangijala, even when it is threatened by evil and with possible destruction is still in my opinion depicted by Astrid Lindgren as somehow being better in every way than life on earth And that after Jonathan is severely injured by in the battle with Katla, that the two brothers actually choose to commit suicide, and thereby to move from Nanjigala to Nangilama, where there supposedly is an easier existence with better stories, well, I just do not particularly appreciate as an adult reader the potential message this might give to children that suicide is both acceptable and a not even all that traumatic escape, for while it might well be important to show children that death is not some monster to always and continuously fear, I do think that the way death is actively embraced and seen as a positive escape into an evenidyllic existence by Astrid Lindgren at the end of The Brothers Lionheart, this does go just a wee bit too far for my level of comfort If you don t like this book, you just don t understand anything If you still haven t read it, please do Simply one of the best children s books ever written It deals with some very serious issues in a truly admirable way and gives hope at the same time Pure, honest, brave and magical. Reading childhood favourites again as an adult is risky business, and with Astrid Lindgren it can be devastating Not because her books disappoint they don t She has the gift of writing books that are read one way by children and another by adults For a child, The Brothers Lionheart is an empowering adventure about brotherly love, courage, and doing the right thing even if you are scared Children take the story at face value It s the story of a sick child who gets to go on adventures and be Reading childhood favourites again as an adult is risky business, and with Astrid Lindgren it can be devastating Not because her books disappoint they don t She has the gift of writing books that are read one way by children and another by adults For a child, The Brothers Lionheart is an empowering adventure about brotherly love, courage, and doing the right thing even if you are scared Children take the story at face value It s the story of a sick child who gets to go on adventures and be healthy, and be a hero in his own little way It s a story about not needing to fear death I have heard of this book being used in therapy sessions with terminally ill children It was a strange experience to read the book to my daughter and watch her react to it in the same way I had as a child, while I was now experiencing a different book Yes, I found the plot transparent, and there were some convenient but unrealistic plot devices But that s fair enough It works for kids, and doesn t underestimate them I also realised that it wasn t just a story of good versus evil, it was obviously a story of fascism, occupation and resistance Older brother Jonathan keeps getting compared to a fairytale prince, but he islike a young Christ figure This realisation didn t detract from the story at all, it just made it a different experience.What simportant is that I had trouble keeping my voice steady during the opening chapters, and had to take a break to wipe my tears before I could read on Being a mother now, I identified not with the dying child, but with the mother First her husband is lost at sea, then she loses both her children My daughter looked at me and said, But mummy, she will see them again in Nangijala The story felt, in part, like the hope and innocence of my childhood being stripped away Maybe it wouldn t have affected me so much if I hadn t experienced it as a child first As an adult you realise immediately that Nangijala isn t real, it is an invention to soothe a dying child And that changes the whole book Especially, it changes the ending Once again I had trouble keeping my voice steady, but to my daughter it was a happy ending Astrid Lindgren wrote for children, and she was always on their side Champion of children, devastator of the grown up heart What an amazing literary gift
