This second part of the anthology?see Middle Ages to Romanticism?contains selections of Danish literature from the mid-19th century to the present.


Included are selections from the inter­nationally-known critic, Georg Brandes; the original impressionist stylist, Herman Bang; two Danish Nobel Prize winners, Henrik Pontoppidan and Johannes V. Jensen; the martyred clergyman-drama­tist, Kaj Munk; the literary champion of the proletariat, Martin Andersen Nexø; and the distinguished modern storyteller, Karen Blixen (Isak Dinesen). Included also are numerous other Danish writers less well known, whose presence here will bring to English-speaking readers, per­haps for the first time, a realization of the depth of Danish literature.
