On this day in ...

1881: Ibsen wrote an application on behalf of Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson and himself to Hagbard Emanuel Berner, Member of Parliament (Stortinget) about an increase in the Poet’s Pension. Berner brought the case to Stortinget 1st February 1882, but asked on 1st March the same year for the case to be postponed, until the losses which Bjørnson and Ibsen suffered had been more closely documented. The Poet’s Pension and the problems concerning the privileges of authors were debated both in 1882 and later, but Stortinget never passed any increase of Ibsen’s Poet’s Pension. His annual salary remained 400 dollars (‘spesidaler’, equal to 1600 kroner). Read Ibsen’s letter to Berner in its entirety.
