Omtale The origins of the "regime of goodness"
The author takes issue with the stock interpretation of Norwegian (and indeed Scandinavian) cultural history, according to which the foundations of modern Nordic identity are to be found in the Romantic breakthrough. She argues that, while Norway was indeed perceived as the cradle of European Romanticism, its romantic credentials are at best suspect and were largely invented by the outside world.
