A HAPPY BOY (Annotated)

release date: Apr 12, 2021
A HAPPY BOY (Annotated)
His name was Oyvind, and he cried when he was born. But no sooner did he sit up on his mother's lap than he laughed, and when the candle was lit in the evening the room rang with his laughter, but he cried when he was not allowed to reach it."Something remarkable will come of that boy!" said the mother.A barren cliff, not a very high one, though, overhung the house where he was born; fir and birch looked down upon the roof, the bird-cherry strewed flowers over it. And on the roof was a little goat belonging to Oyvind; it was kept there that it might not wander away, and Oyvind bore leaves and grass up to it. One fine day the goat leaped down and was off to the cliff; it went straight up and soon stood where it had never been before

Synnövé Solbakken

Synnövé Solbakken
Professor Anderson has made himself the interpreter of the Norse genius to the nation which promised to become in some of its sections a western Norway. He has eminent qualifications for this great work in his vital as well as scholarly comprehension of a world of thought and feeling to which we are in a measure alien, and in his ready command of our own tongue. A genuine enthusiasm impels him to the discharge of a task among the most important that ever devolves upon the man of letters. Carlyle was the first to excite a popular interest in the great history of thought and action which have been the fertile soil of Norse legend and literature. Odin and Thor are familiar figures since his strong hand drew their massive features with a few bold, inspiring strokes. Professor Anderson laid the foundation of what, we hope, will be a comprehensive rendering of the Norse masterpieces into English by reducing the vast, chaotic Norse mythology into order, translating its noble conceptions, gods and men, into myths of such beauty that every English mind must recognize their natural majesty. A rich view of native poetry runs through Norse life, and makes even its severe simplicity fit material for the finest literary art. Björnson is the greatest mind which Norway has produced for centuries. He is a man of intense activity, the creative impulse impelling him to many forms of literary expression, and to the more aggressive work of religious and political reform. "Synnöve Solbakken" was his first novel; the work of his early manhood. It appeared in 1857, and was immediately recognized as the work of a master.It is a simple story of Norse life told with directness and simplicity which seems born of the very nature of the quiet, secluded existence which it portrays. Its almost meager outlines betray the touch of a bold, sure hand. and spring from no poverty of imaginative power or lack of descriptive faculty. Out of a few common elements the old story of human weakness built up into strength by the power of human love is told again, with a freshness that will be a new revolution to the novel reader weary of intense situations and exaggerated sentiment. As a picture of life in Norway it is eminently worthy of careful study. Prof. Anderson has apparently done his work as a translator with commendable repression of himself. The other stories in the series will be awaited with great interest.-New Outlook, Volume 24 [1881]

The Fisher Maiden

release date: May 28, 2019
The Fisher Maiden
"The Fisher Maiden" was written in 1867 and 1868, and was published simultaneously in Norway and Germany. The popularity of the story is sufficiently demonstrated by the fact that it has appeared in four German and in two English translations, the present being the third. The characters are, perhaps, less ideal than those of his peasant stories, and the style throughout indicates that the author has entered upon a new era in his literary development. His aim here is to show how irresistible is the power of innate vocation and natural talent, and to vindicate the theatre as a place not only of amusement, but also of instruction, against the unjust criticisms of the clergy. In the weird poem, in the eleventh chapter, on the young viking, Mr. Björnson depicts, in strangely profound sentences, his own career, his early struggles, and the victory he so quickly gained. Indeed, as Björnson said to me in 1872, "The Fisher Maiden" is Björnson himself, and in the young viking he has given, in a few enigmatic strokes, a picture of both the heroine and the author. Nowhere does Mr. Björnson's patriotism burst forth in purer and nobler strains than in the short poem that follows soon after that on the young viking. It is all aglow with love and pride and confidence and hope, and is a perfect mirror of the poet's feelings and aspirations in the midst of his great success. The poems in this volume are translated by Augusta Plesner and Frederika Richardson, with the exception of the one at the end of chapter iv., beginning, "Ah, sweet is Love's first meeting!" and the one in chapter ix., beginning "Joy now is kindled," both of which are by Auber Forestier.

Arnljot Gelline

release date: May 25, 2019
Arnljot Gelline
In the lyric-epic poem "Arnljot Gelline," we have Björnson in his first, purely Norse, period. The hero is an outlaw who joins the forces of King Olaf Trygvason and falls with him in the Battle of Stiklestad for the cause of Christ against the older gods. The story is told in a series of vivid episodes, each with a mood and metre of its own. To a reader unable to appreciate the stern reserve power of Norse poetry, such a piece will seem bare in subject and abstruse in style, but to him who catches the tone it will be rich in inspiration. The alternations of gloom and radiant vision are like the changing lights of a broken storm on the North Sea.Dr. Payne has followed the original in rhythm and rhyme, with the result that he conveys to the reader much of its atmosphere. He is most happy where the verse is freest and least rhyme is required. Here his phrasing has great directness and dignity, together with a sweep that carries one along breathlessly. In the more set passages, the inversions of the English are at times disturbing. Fortunately the great moments come where the translator is most completely submerged in the scenes and emotions of the poem. A compact introduction and notes with full quotations from the "Heimskringla" and Björnson's other sources make the volume attractive alike to the general reader and the scholar.-"Scandinavian Review," Volume 6

The Bridal March
Astrid was determined, and she was twenty-three, and her parents came to see that either the farm must go out of the family or Knut must come into it; through their own marriage they had lost the moral authority that might have stood them in good stead now. So Astrid had her way. One fine day the handsome, merry Knut drove with her to church. The strains of the family bridal march, her grandfather's masterpiece, were wafted back over the great procession, and the two seemed to be sitting humming it quietly, and very happy they looked. And every one wondered how the parents looked so happy too, for they had opposed the marriage long and obstinately.
