About the Author
Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson (1832–1910) was a Norwegian writer, poet, playwright, and a 1903 Nobel Laureate in Literature. A foremost figure of the Norwegian literary scene, he is one of the four 'Greats' who brought about the Norwegian Romantic Movement's golden age. Bjørnson's influence extended beyond literature; he was a compelling orator and a strong proponent for the Norwegian language and identity during the union with Sweden. His commitment to cultural nationalism paralleled his literary endeavors to instil pride and unity among Norwegians. Bjørnson's literary oeuvre spans a variety of genres including poetry, drama, and novels. Notable works include the well-loved 'Synnøve Solbakken', a pioneer in the genre of peasant novels, and the epic poem 'Arnljot Gelline'. He also made significant contributions to theatrical literature and is renowned for the play 'Peer Gynt', after Henrik Ibsen, with whom he had a congenial rivalry. Bjørnson's literary style combines realism and naturalism, but he also infused his works with idealism, emphasizing the innate goodness of man and the belief in progress and enlightenment. Bjørnson's participation in creating 'Santa's Library: 400+ Christmas Novels, Stories, Poems, Carols & Legends' is a testament to his diverse literary capacity, appealing to the warmth and unity emblematic of the Christmas spirit. Through his writings, Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson remains a seminal figure who left an indelible imprint on Norwegian literature and culture. His legacy endures in the spirit of nationalism, the celebration of the peasant class, and his profound humanism, which echoed throughout his diverse literary contributions.
