Visit us online at www. 1stWorldLibrary. ORG - - In a review which appeared in the Athenum, of a translation of one of Jonas Lies earlier works - Den Fremsynte (The Visionary) - the reviewer expressed a hope that I would follow up that translation with an English version of Lies Livsslaven, that intensely tragic and pathetic story of suffering and wrong. It is in accordance with this suggestion that the present volume makes its appearance. In taking Christiania life for the subject of Livsslaven, Jonas Lie attempted for the second time to break down the preconceived opinion of critics, that such a subject did not come within his province. They were accustomed to have tales of sea-life from his pen, and could not readily be persuaded that another sphere of life might afford equal scope for his talent. Thomas Ross, published in 1878, had treated of Christiania life, and had attracted but little attention; and now, in the spring of 1883, appeared this story of a smiths apprentice, with his struggles for existence and his ultimate final failure owing to the irresistible indulgence of a passionate physical instinct.
