I just though ( this ) might be of interest.

It's a site with information on Bjørneboe in english. Voila.

I have been doing some travelling these last months, so unfortunately I have not noticed the activity here.. anyways, these are two of my questions about bjorneboe I think it's more likely norwegian-reading people are able to answer than anyone else because of the lack of translated information about him.

I'd like to know is what kind of connection Bjorneboe had to the Baader-Meinhof group, the German terroristcrew also known as Rote Armee Fraktion.

was he really attacking the idea of an independant palestinian state? because I can't really see how he could be pro-israel, like some sources claim. if it's true, I want to know what bits of information I've been missing out on between him supporting RAF and at the same time defending israeli injustice towards the palestinian people.

some of this might be all wrong for all I know, but as I've been saying, it's hard for me to find information about these subjects elsewhere.

I'll see if I have any further relevant information, or the enthusiasm to try and translate further passages:)

I recently read the first to parts of the History of Bestiality, and made quite a few notes of interesting observations (merely bjørneboe-quotations, though, not interpretations) and thought they may be of interest to this community, but in that case they'd have to be translated.

Might be that I'll post some purely norwegian posts, but I'll lj-cut them for your convenience.

Frihetens Øyeblikk, s 137.

"Gamle hus er vakre. Slumgater, horehus, fengsler og havnekvarterer er vakre. Havet
er vakkert, fjellene, slettene, skogene er vakre. Det er en merkelig jord man våkner opp
til; man gnir seg i øynene og ser: alt er meget vakkert - skyene, ilden, en tomflaske mot
lyset eller ved siden av en sitron, alt dette er vakkert.

Regnværet er vakkert. Mosen. Gammel gatesten. Brukte ting. Et gammelt gulv, en
blankslitt stol. Solskinnet er meget vakkert. En ensom øygruppe av gråsvart sten i
Nordatlanteren. Det er mulig at det vakreste av alt er gamle mennesker.

Også et appelsintre og unge mennesker kan være meget vakre.

En gammel tomkasse med slitte varemerker og utvaskede, farvede merkelapper på er en
meget vakker ting. En lirekasse. En velbrukt brødfjel. Og stenene på en strand. Havet."

You guys should really try reading Jens Bjørneboe in Norwegian, if you ever have the opportunity to. All books are so much better in the original language. :-) And Bjørneboe is truly amazing!

I figured this could be a community where anyone interested could discuss the life and works of Jens Bjorneboe.
Unfortunately, I have not gotten hold of more than four of his books (the history of bestiality trilogy and the sharks), so I'm hoping for some experts to join later on. Because I don't think I'm able to answer that many question about his life and other works.
On the other hand, I've got lots of questions, because most of the information on the web is in Norwegian. So I hope some Norwegians are to join as well to help us with some translating :)
