Author Biography
Skram, Amalie (Author)
Amalie Skram was a scandalous figure at the time of the Modern Breakthrough: not only a divorced woman, but a writer on topics not deemed suitable for a lady. Her hard-hitting naturalism and exposes of social injustice and sexist sexual mores shocked many people. In Constance Ring (1885), for example, Skram explores the trauma caused by the societal expectation that women, raised in ignorance and married to men they do not love, should nevertheless become warm sexual partners. 020
