About the Author

Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson (1832–1910) was a Norwegian writer who towered as one of the great literary figures of the nineteenth century. Nobel Laureate in Literature (1903), Bjørnson was an influential poet, dramatist, and novelist, whose works have left a lasting imprint on Norwegian culture. He is considered as one of the 'Great Four' Norwegian writers, alongside Henrik Ibsen, Alexander Kielland, and Jonas Lie. His literary style was rooted in the National Romantic movement, which sought to develop a distinctive Norwegian literary voice as part of the country's move towards independence from Sweden. Bjørnson's most famous works include the epic poem 'Arnljot Gelline', the historical play 'Sigurd Slembe', and the novel 'The Fisher Maiden' (translated as 'The Bridal March & One Day'). His penchant for weaving social issues, national identity, and moral dilemmas into his works made his literature resonate with both the personal and the political spheres of life. He was not just an author but also an influential public figure, advocating for political reforms and the rights of the Norwegian language. Although 'Santa's Christmas Library' is mentioned, it is likely this title does not align with Bjørnson's well-documented body of work, and it may be a misattribution or a lesser-known piece not referenced typically in scholarly discussions of his literary contributions.
