Excerpt from Captain Mansana Mother's Hands The two somewhat anomalous stories which are here published together have little in common except the difficulty of finding a place for them in the category of Bjornson's works. "Captain Mansana" under the title of "Kaptejn Mansana, en Fort lling fra Italien," was originally printed, in 1875, in the Norwegian periodical "Fra Fjeld og Dal." It did not appear in book form until August 1879, when it was published, in a paper cover with a startling illustration, in Copenhagen. "Captain Mansana" was written at Aulestad. It was almost immediately published in a Swedish, and later in a German, translation. A Norwegian magazine, entitled "Nyt Tidsskrift" was started in Christiania in 1882, and continued to represent extreme liberal views in Norway until 1887, when it ceased to appear. In 1892 an attempt was made to resuscitate this periodical, under the general editorship of J. E. Sars. The first number of this new series appeared in November of that year, the opening article being the story of "Mors h nder" ("Mother's Hands"). It was reprinted in August 1894, in the collection called "Nye Fort l linger." It is now for the first time translated into English.
