Kittelsen’s Soria Moria Castle

In 1900, Theodor Kittelsen produced a series of 12 paintings that illustrated the folktale, “Soria Moria Castle.” In 1911, he wrote the text that goes with the pictures. In my opinion, Kittelsen’s tale is quite weak, textually. I think it comes of the text having to fit the series of pictures that had already been produced. The weakness of the narrative is the reason I have decided to post everything on the web, rather than publishing it in a book.

You’ll find the tale here, complete with all the illustrations.
