Lie, Jonas

 

Born Nov. 6, 1833, in Eiker, near Modum; died July 5, 1908, in Stavern. Norwegian writer.

Lie was a lawyer by education. In 1866 he published a collection entitled Poems, which reflected the influence of H. Wergeland. He achieved success with his novel The Visionary, or Pictures From Nordland (1870), in which elements of reality are interwoven with folk fantasies. The central theme of the novel The Pilot and His Wife (1874) is marriage in a bourgeois society. Social conflicts are at the heart of the realistic novels One of Life’s Slaves (1883, translated into Russian in 1894), The Family at Gilje (1883), and The Commander’s Daughters (1886, translated into Russian in 1895). He was the author of the plays Thomas Ross (1878), Adam Schrader (1879), and Lindelin (1897), as well as fairy tales (the Trold collections, 1891–92) and the novel East of the Sun (1905).
