ABSALOM'S HAIR 

BJORNSTJERNE BJORNSON 

CHAPTER 1 

Harald Kaas was sixty. 

He had given up his free, uncriticised bachelor life; his yacht
was no longer seen off the coast in summer; his tours to England
and the south had ceased; nay, he was rarely to be found even at
his club in Christiania.  His gigantic figure was never seen in the
doorways; he was failing. 

Bandy-legged he had always been, but this defect had increased;
his herculean back was rounded, and he stooped a little.  His
forehead, always of the broadest--no one else's hat would fit him-
-was now one of the highest, that is to say, he had lost all his
hair, except a ragged lock over each ear and a thin fringe behind.
