Esaias Tegnér
A Swedish poet and intellectual leader. Bishop in Växjö.

He was born in the curate´s residence in Kyrkerud in the Säffle district. His breakthrough to an independent poet was during the liberation from the eudemonistic philosophy of Enlightenment. His diction after all remained characterized by the Gustavian poetry, long after he changed his opinion.
