Jaeger, Hans Henrik

 

Born Sept. 2, 1854, in Drammen; died Feb. 8, 1910, in Oslo. Norwegian writer.

Jaeger was trained in philosophy. His best-known dramatic work is the didactic play Olga (1883). In his naturalistic novel From the Christiania Bohème (1885), he contrasted anarchic personal freedom with bourgeois morality. The later novels Diseased Love (1893) and Prison and Despair (1895) reveal the decline of his creative powers.
