Diary of a Parish Clerk and Other Stories by Steen Steensen Blicher
Book DescriptionThe nineteenth-century Danish writer, Steen Steensen Blicher deserves to stand alongside the great writers of world literature, from Boccaccio to Maupassant, and this selection of his work will make a group of his most important stories available in the English-speaking world. These reveal not only the writer himself but the country and culture which formed him in the early years of the nineteenth century. Although his subject matter is deeply and truly that of Denmark, his account of human relationships is timeless and he deploys the true storytellers art.
