Über den Autor

Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson (1832–1910) was a towering figure in Norwegian literature and a central member of the Scandinavian cultural renaissance of the late 19th century. A novelist, playwright, poet, and journalist, Bjørnson is best remembered for his spirited storytelling, nationalist themes, and commitment to social reform. His varied literary style embraced both realism and naturalism, and his works often explored the struggles of ordinary people, the tensions between individual desires and societal expectations, and the love of his native country, Norway. Beyond literature, Bjørnson was also a prominent public figure who received the 1903 Nobel Prize in Literature for his 'distinguished lyrical writing, which has inspired his countrymen.' Though Harvard Classics does not entirely encapsulate Bjørnson's oeuvre, it is indicative of his influence on European literature. One of his key contributions, 'Synnøve Solbakken,' is a seminal piece that introduced the peasant novel genre, characteristically blending romantic nationalism with pastoral themes. Bjørnson's work in 'Harvard Classics' stands alongside other literary stalwarts, ensuring his legacy remains influential in the cannon of Western literature.
