The Father. Peder Bjørnson Defends Himself.

Hoem, Edvard: Faderen. Peder Bjørnson forsvarer seg.

Edvard Hoem was going to write about the Norwegian author Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson (1832-1910), but discovered that the prevailing opinion on Bjørnstjerne’s father, Peder Bjørnson, was both incomplete and misleading. Based on Peder Bjørnson’s letters and texts, which have been collecting dust in archives for one hundred and fifty years, Hoem has written the story of an unusual priest in the 19th century.
