Synopsis

Isak Dinesen and Narrativity Reassessments for the 1990s by Gurli A. Woods

The work of Isak Dinesen, nom de plume for Danish writer Karen Blixen, has become an important part of Western literature since her death in 1962. The fourteen original essays collected here respond to recent Dinesen scholarship and criticism in terms of current theoretical orientations: feminism and gender studies, poststructuralism, postmodernism, and narratology. Scholars from Canada, Denmark, and the United States offer a cross-section of commentary on Dinesen's work, from the early, autobiographical Out of Africa, on which an Oscar-winning Hollywood film was based, to mature fictions such as Babette's Feast , which was also made into a celebrated movie.
