Getting Started
Finding biographical information on authors can be either very easy or frustratingly difficult. While much is written about the very famous, locating a biography on a less famous author can be challenging. Finding anything on the obscure or new writer can be as difficult as solving a murder mystery. Unless you absolutely know otherwise, the best initial strategy to take is to assume your author is famous enough to be found without too much difficulty.

    Dag Hammarskjöld
    Hammarskjöld, Dag (1905 - 1961) statesman, Sweden. Dag Hammarskjöld Dag Hammarskjöld is no ordinary writer. Except for scholarly works and published speeches he has written only one book, the posthumously published Vägmärken (Markings, 1964). Markings has the form of a spiritual diary, with traces and milestones of the author's negotiations with himself and with God. But the value of the book reaches far beyond its autobiographic interest. If the book is unique, the author was not. The family Hammarskjöld belonged to a class of noble civil servants, serving the Swedish Crown since the 17th century. . As a representative for this class of civil service officers in the Lutheran Europe, with a strong tradition of dutifulness, righteousness and self-discipline, Hammarskjöld illustrates the effects of Democracy's break-through on the mentality of a highly gifted individual. Central themes in the book includes the feeling of distance to other people, superiority and loneliness, and the duty to overcome these feelings.
