Summary
"Sophus Lie was not only an intellectual force, but also garnered renown for his physical strength and endurance. He was among the early pioneers of hiking in Norway and he participated with vigour in peasant weddings and other celebrations that he encountered on his foot tours. While he was walking across France during the Franco-Prussian War, he found himself arrested on suspicion of being a German spy. This event made him "famous across the land" at home in Norway. Sophus Lie was a man of abundant complexity such that he also harboured heavy black thoughts - Arild Stubhaug gives us insights into all sides of his nature. What is of considerable interest in relation to cultural history is the description of Sophus Lie's courting of the woman who, after considering the matter during a lengthy engagement, would become his life's companion. Lie's letters from this period give a unique glimpse both of the customs of the day and of a multi-faceted personality."--Jacket
