Hans Aanrud

(Vestre Gausdal, 1863 - Oslo, 1953) Norwegian writer. Born into a rural family, in his most important novel, En Vinternat ( A Winter's Night and Other Stories, 1896), as well as in Seminaristen ( The Seminarian, 1901), he portrays with poignant realism and measured doses of tenderness and humor peasant life in eastern Norway.

In the dramatic genre, in works such as Storken ( The Stork , 1895) and Hanen ( The Rooster , 1906), he reflected the customs and ways of life of the urban classes of Oslo. Hans Aanrud also cultivated literary and theater criticism and served as advisor to the Oslo National Theater.
