About the author (2012)

Bj°rnstjerne Bj°rnson was the consummate idealist, crusading for noble causes all over Europe, but maintaining his sympathy for human failings. Bj°rnson's tales of country life were a romantic attempt to capture the Norwegian national character in literature. They were vastly popular in the United States among homesick Norwegian immigrants. When the Modern Breakthrough arrived, Bj°rnson began energetically composing plays of social relevance. Although less widely read today, Bj°rnson remains a significant figure in Norwegian literary history. Bj°rnson was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1903. Bj°rnson died in 1910.
