About the Author

Bjørnstjerne Martinsen Bjørnson (1832–1910) was a towering figure in Norwegian literature and a national luminary, whose literary contributions extend from poetry and plays to novels and political essays. Born on December 8, 1832, at Kvikne in Norway, Bjørnson is renowned for his instrumental role in the Norwegian literary movement of the late 19th century, and his works are regarded as essential in the national romanticism era. A versatile writer, his output ranges from the rural novel 'Synnøve Solbakken' to the historical play 'Sigurd Jorsalfar,' reflecting Norway's culture and social issues. With his seminal work earning him the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1903, Bjørnson's legacy is enshrined in the canon of Scandinavian literature. His profound impact on Norwegian identity and literature is encapsulated in his authorship of the lyrics for the national anthem 'Ja, vi elsker dette landet.' Notably, Bjørnson was also a fervent advocate for cultural and political independence and actively participated in public debates. 'The Big Christmas Basket: 200+ Christmas Novels, Stories, Poems & Carols (Illustrated)' is a collection that incorporates his festive literary contributions, offering a glimpse into his rich and varied style that combines patriotism with a broader humane and progressive outlook. As a key national icon, Bjørnson's literary style is characterized by its lyrical naturalism, romantic idealism, and an abiding love for his homeland, which has left an indelible mark on Norwegian literature.
