After Dag Hammarskjöld’s death in September of 1961, a manuscript was found at his residence in New York. It was entitled Markings. In an enclosed letter he called the notes for "a kind of 'white paper’ concerning my negotiations with myself - and with God."
Today, Dag Hammarskjöld’s book is a classic. After its publication in 1963, Markings has been translated into a number of languages - and new readers continue to find their way to one of Swedish literature’s most original thinkers.
