Statue of the week no. 4

September 26, 2010

This weeks statue is of Sigrid Undset (1882 – 1949) and is in Stensparken which I walk past on my way to and from work.  Sigrid Undset won the Nobel prize for literature for her most famous work Kristin Lavransdatter.  This is a trio of novels set in Scandanavia in the Middle Ages.  It is available in English in Penguin.  Why is there a statue of her in Stensparken?  She lived for many years in various streets around the park.
