Jonas Lauritz Idemil Lie

Lie, Jonas Lauritz Idemil (yōˈnäs louˈrĭts ēˈdəmēl lē) [key], 1833–1908, Norwegian novelist, poet, and playwright. His writing deals with family life in diverse settings. The Pilot and His Wife (1874, tr. 1876), the first of his several sea tales, was the first Norwegian novel to treat marriage realistically. The Family at Gilje (1883, tr. 1894) and The Commodore's Daughters (1886, tr. 1892) portray the social and intellectual restrictions on women of the educated classes.
