Skram, Amalie, 1846-1905
Marriage - Fiction.
"Initially rejected by the author's scandalized publisher, Constance Ring is now considered a classic of Scandinavian - and world - literature, a passionate condemnation of marriage and moral hypocrisy that has drawn comparisons to Madame Bovary and The Awakening. This novel tells the story of a naive young woman who sets out to divorce her loving but adulterous husband. She finds little support for her decision but refuses to yield to the forces of a society that offers women few choices other than marriage."--Back cover.
