What does it take for a community to realize that the living are more important than the dead?
As Swedish author Lars Ahlin wrote: ” Banished has an imperative epic thrust and a subtle treatment of love and its unexpected translformations.” As powerful an anti-war novel as any ever written.

Selma Lagerlöf’s powerful anti-war novel, written during World War I, grapples with issues any society at war must struggle with. As relevant today as it was when it was written. A true classic.

Swedish title: Bannlyst.
