Gustaf Fröding was a Swedish writer, journalist and poet. One of his best-known collections of poems is Splashes and Tabs from 1896, which includes the poem A Morning Dream, which got him prosecuted but acquitted.
The poems that are best known and read are all written in the national Swedish language, albeit with the occasional Värmland expression. Fröding often describes the beautiful nature of Värmland in his poems, an environment he knew well from his childhood.
He spent long periods of time in various care institutions because of his mental illness, but what his actual diagnosis was is much debated. He died as a result of his alcoholism and diabetes.
