This selection of letters exchanged between two Scandinavian authors, the Norwegian Amalie Skram and the Danish Erik Skram, during the last two decades of the 19th century, presents a lively picture of cultural and political ferment during a decisive time in the development of the two states. Both had access to the leading figures of the time, from radical writers and critics to politicians.
