Adolphine Marie Colban (1814–1884)

Colban, Adolphine Marie (kol’bän). A Norwegian novelist (1814–84). Her ‘Letters to a Barbarian,’ published by a friend, captivated Parisian society, and the author decided to exercise her newly discovered talent by writing stories in her own language. Between 1869 and 1881 she published seven volumes of tales. Among them ‘Jeg Lever’ is perhaps the most noteworthy.
