NOTES

PREFATORY

BJÖRNSTJERNE BJÖRNSON was born in 1832 and died in 1909. The last edition of his Poems and Songs published in his lifetime is the fourth, dated 1903. It is a volume of two hundred pages, containing one hundred and forty-one pieces, arranged in nearly chronological order from 1857, or just before, to 1900. Of these almost two-thirds appeared in the first edition (1870), ending with Good Cheer and including ten pieces omitted in the other editions, eight poems and two lyrical passages from the drama King Sverre; the second edition (1880) added the contents in order through Question and Answer and inserted earlier The Angels of Sleep; the third (1900) extended the additions to include Frederik Hegel.

This translation presents in the same order the contents of the fourth edition, with the exception of the following ten pieces :

Bryllupsvise Nr. I.

Bryllupsvise Nr. II.

Bryllupsvise Nr. III.

Bryllupsvise Nr. IP.

Bryllupsvise Nr. V.

De norske studenter til fru Louise Heiberg.

De norske studenters hilsen med fakkeltog til deres kgl. höiheder kronprins Frederik og kronprinsesse Louise.

Til sorenskriver Mejdells sölobryllup.

Nytaarsrim til rektor Steen.

Til maleren Hans Gudes og frues guldbryllup.

Nine of these are occasional songs in the narrowest sense, with little or no general interest, and showing hardly any of the author’s better qualities : five Wedding Songs, a Betrothal Song, a SilverWedding Song, a Golden-Wedding Song, and a Students’ Song of
