The Nobel Prize in Literature 1944 was awarded to Johannes V. Jensen "for the rare strength and fertility of his poetic imagination with which is combined an intellectual curiosity of wide scope and a bold, freshly creative style".
The language is beautiful, quite unlike anything else I have read. It has a very Danish quality to it, which is maybe why it is not available in English translation. This is a shame, as a book this marvellous should be made available to readers all over the world. /Anna, United States
