Book description
This selection of the best post-war Danish writing ranges from the literary veteran Albert Dam to the most talented young writers. The themes of the stories-with their parallel elements of fantasy and realism-are diverse. Among them are modern fairy tales and those that explore erotic and psychological obsessions and conflicts, providing a broad picture of an interesting and little-known literature, For this volume the editor, Sven Holm, himself a young Danish writer, has chosen twenty-one stories which he thinks will give a representative impression of some of the important trends in Danish literature today. Contributors to this volume: Benny Andersen, Anders Bodelsen, Cecil Bodker, Jorgen Gustava Brandt, Leif E. Christensen, Albert Dam, Tove Ditlevsen, Sven Holm, Knud Holst, Frank Jaeger, Hans Lyngby Jepsen, Christian Kampmann, Sven Aage Madsen, Paul Orum, Leif Panduro, Klaus Rifberg, Peter Ronild, Ulla Ryum, Peter Seeberg, Villy Sorensen, Dorritt Willumsen.
