The paper describes Bjornson's "The Brothers", the touching story of Baard and Anders, two brothers who fight and are reconciled eventually after much suffering and distress. The paper shows how Bjornson drafts a remarkable analysis of the subtleties of the human heart and the fragility of human bonds.

From the Paper:

"Bjornson's choice of two brothers as his main characters in this story is significant because it is an example of one the most profound relationships between two people. Baard and Anders were very close all their lives, and loved each other deeply as two brothers should. Nevertheless, when, after their father's death, they intend to sell his goods at an auction, they find that they both want the same thing: a golden watch. The bidding is an important moment because it shows how this small event divides the two for a very long time. Their beautiful relationship is destroyed during the bidding, when each of them considers that the other should give the watch up in favor of the other."
