Krusenstjerna, Agnes von

Agnes von Krusenstjerna (äng´nās vôn krōōsĕnshĕr´nä), 1894–1940, Swedish novelist. Krusenstjerna's works reflect the aristocratic and emotionally disturbed background from which she came. She frequently portrayed the degeneracy of the society from which she separated herself. Her works include the controversial novel cycles Tonyböckerna [the Tony books] (1922–26) and Fröknarna von Pahlen [the Misses von Pahlen] (1930–35). In these novels she presented for the first time in Swedish literature a candid picture of sexual problems. Her works are outstanding for the skill and psychological acuity of her writing.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
