The two great Norwegian novelists of today, Knut Hamsun and Johann Bojer, were both of lowly origin.
Strindberg and such moderns as Bojer and Nexö and Lagerlöf found their way into world literature first through German translations.
She quoted a sentence from a Norwegian novelist, Johan Bojer, written during the First World War: “I went and sowed corn in my enemy’s field that God might exist.”
j = the English y; thus Bojer = Boyer, Jens = Yens.
