3.5 stars.

The Father is a touching and sad tale of a man's life with his son through the eyes of the priest as they pass each milestone in the son's life.

This is a lovely short story. About a father and how he raised his son seen through the eyes of another. I liked reading it. There's something incredibly lonely about this tale. 3 stars.

Denoted by what he gives

Novellen "Fadern" är skriven av Björnstjerne Björnson som med några sidor lyckades väcka nyfikenhet hos mig för att tolka det som står mellan raderna. Författaren tar oss på en resa i en fars live från det ögonblicket han fått ett barn tills barnet dör och hur olika omständigheter kan påverka oss.

It is a rather tragic tale of a father who thinks that he has completely his responsibilities to his son, and is quite mistaken in the end.

I really hate this "there's freedom in suffering" bs, ESPECIALLY when it involves the church, the least suffering of all.

synes det er en fin novelle fra den poetisk realisme. jeg tror fortsatt at jeg foretrekker Camilla Collett, men ikke si det til noen. (Amtmandens døtre ❤)
men godt jobba Bjørnson. ikke det at det betyr noe nå, men jeg liker skrivestilen din. tenkte å prøve meg på En Hanske neste gang.
