The Religious Views of Bjornson and Ibsen : Address (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Religious Views of Björnson and Ibsen: Address This view comes out very strongly in his social drama Above Human Power, where he lets the two children Credo and Spera, who represent the hopes Of the future, express the Opinion, that the inventions, which better the conditions of mankind, will solve the labour question. Credo says What inventions there will be! What wealth! But father said that that is nothing, compared to what will come, when all human beings some day move home again to earth. And Spera continues: Heaven is here. In our hearts, you know, there is heaven. Credo replies: In the future and in everything we do for it, is heaven. Still the poet's aspiration sometimes breaks through the steel armour in which he has cramped his thought and his heart; as for instance, when with joy he pays homage to God, as not only. The order and harmony of all forces but as a creative, life-givin g and guiding personality. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
