Norwegian women's writing, 1850-1990 by Janet Garton( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume One in a new series, this book covers Norwegian women's writing over the last 150 years, setting literary developments against the background of the emergence and growth of the women's movement in Norway. The work is divided chronologically into three sections: the period up to 1913, when the universal suffrage was granted; the period from 1913 to 1960, a time of stagnation in the women's movement, with little involvement in contemporary political, social and economic debates; and the period from 1960 to the present day, which has seen an increasing participation of women in public life

Caught in the enchanter's net : Amalie and Erik Skram's letters by Amalie Skram( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Amalie Skram is a major nineteenth-century Norwegian novelist, whose novels vividly evoke both the atmosphere of her native town, Bergen, with its bustling life and its grinding poverty, and the battle of the sexes at a time when sexual morality was the subject of a great Nordic debate. Erik Skram is a Danish writer and journalist at the centre of the literary life of Copenhagen, embroiled in the political and cultural upheavals of his day. The letters they exchanged during the last two decades of the nineteenth-century present a lively picture of a decisive time in the development of both their countries into modern states. The letters provide a wealth of information about contemporary issues, from parliamentary procedure to the price of hatpins, and frank, at time scurrilous, gossip about the private lives of famous people. They also tell a love story, of a passionate attachment between two very different but equally headstrong people, from the first jolt of attraction through resistance, seduction, marriage, literary partnership and childbirth, to the final despairing separation."--Jacket
A madman's manifesto. Le plaidoyer d'un fou by August Strindberg( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This autobiographical novel is based on Strindberg's life in the 1870s and 1880s, and focuses on his marriage to Siri von Essen. It purports to be a vehicle for explaining to himself his role in the relationship from its ecstatic beginnings to its catastrophic conclusion. Strindberg was writing at the time of the modern women's movement and the intense Nordic debate on sexual morality, and the novel echoes on an anguished personal level the theme of the battle of the sexes. It is one of his many and varied attempts to write his own life, to use himself as raw material." --Back cover

Focuses on the relationship between Ana, a high-flying Danish career woman whose work is her life, and the young teenager Mariama. Ana first meets Mariama selling snacks on a beach in Gambia, and the girl gradually becomes a substitute for the family she never had. Ana brings Mariama to Europe to be educated; the girl finds the cultural shock and living with Ana intensely difficult, whilst Ana's obsession with her leads to her own carefully controlled life descending into chaos. The scene moves from colorful depictions of life in a luxury hotel in Africa, cheek by jowl with desperate poverty, to elite designer flats in Copenhagen, and finally the bustling multicultural community on the streets of London

Amalie : et forfatterliv by Janet Garton( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in Norwegian and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Et moderne forfatterliv Amalie Müller var 37 år gammel da hun i mars 1884 brøt opp fra livet som skribent og fraskilt tobarnsmor i Kristiania for å gifte seg med forfatter og journalist Erik Skram, som bodde i København. De to skulle leve av å skrive, og året etter romandebuterte Amalie Skram med Constance Ring, romanen som var så provoserende at Ibsens og Bjørnsons forlag Gyldendal i København refuserte boka etter at de hadde fått den fra trykkeriet. Amalie måtte selv bekoste utgivelsen. Slik ble et forfatterliv på 20 år innledet. Janet Garton skriver levende om et forfatterliv ? og et ekteskap ? som selv i dag fortoner seg som moderne. Amalie og Erik var hverandres store kjærlighet. Likevel endte samlivet med et ulykkelig brudd i 1899. Amalie brukte sine erfaringer og sin skarpe observasjonsevne i sin diktning, men også sin fantasi, sin forestillingsevne og skapte diktverk som gjorde henne til en av de ledende skikkelsene i det moderne gjennombruddet på slutten av 1800-tallet
