 Carl Jonas Love Almqvist (Wikipedia). "Carl Jonas Love Ludvig Almqvist (28 November 1793 in Stockholm, Sweden – 26 September 1866 in Bremen, Germany), was a romantic poet, early feminist, realist, composer, social critic, and traveller....He wrote many books and poems. Some dealt with his radical views on society and politics; in his novel Drottningens juvelsmycke, his main character, Tintomara, is neither male nor female, and arouses both men and women to fall in love, and in his novel Det går an (It is acceptable), a woman lives with a man without being married to him. These books caused the church and state to condemn him and call him a dangerous revolutionary. However, he still maintained influence with his writings, and he is counted as one of the foremost Swedish social reformers of the 19th century." (Submitted on July 16, 2017.)
