Synnöve Solbakken is a rural love story from Norwegian writer Björnstjerne Björnson. The story is written in novelistic prose despite Björnson’s greater reputation as a poet. This translation of his work to England was done in collaboration with his usual English translator Rasmus B. Anderson.
Björnson notably won the 1903 Nobel Prize in Literature for his poetry and is credited as the author of Norway’s national anthem “Ja, vi elsker dette landet".
