The National Library of Norway (NB) has digitized its entire collection of books. This article examines how to make use of this collection in literary studies. The article focuses on the literature of the late 1800s and asks in particular how the modern press made an impact on Norwegian literature in the late 1800s. Based on a series of close readings of canonical texts, we hypothesise that the rise of the commercial newspaper in Norway initiated a new and ambivalent notion of subjectivity that surfaced in literary texts throughout the second half of the nineteenth century. By way of keyword searches, and digital N-gram and collocation analyses in the NB’s digitized archive, we find new empirical material that supports this hypothesis and invites further studies.
