B C D ... Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback Karen Blixen (1885-1962) Danish writer, who mixed in her work supernatural elements, aestheticism, and erotic undertones with an aristocratic view of life. Blixen always emphasized that she was a storyteller (fortaellerske) in the traditional, oral sense of the word. She drew her inspiration from the Bible, the Arabian Nights, the works of Homer, the Icelandic sagas, and the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen, her great countryman. Blixen's stories have inspired such film makers as Orson Welles and Sydney Pollack. She wrote in English and in Danish. 'Are you sure,' she asked, 'that it is God whom you serve?'
The Cardinal looked up, met her eyes and smiled very gently.
'That,' he said, 'that, Madame, is a risk which the artists and the priests of this world have to run!'

(from 'The Cardinal's Fist Tale') Baroness Karen Blixen was born in Rungsted, Denmark, into a well-to-do patrician family. She was the daughter of Ingeborg Westenholz Dinesen, and the writer and army officer Wilhelm Dinesen, whose adventuresome spirit and storytelling talents influenced deeply Blixen's imagination. She spent her childhood on the family estate in Rungsted. Throughout her life Blixen's outlook and manner were unabashedly aristocratic. At early age, Blixen showed an artistic inclination. She attended the Royal Academy of Art in Copenhagen, and also studied in England, Switzerland, Italy, and France. In 1907 Blixen made her debut as a writer with several short stories. In 1914 she married her cousin Baron Bror Blixen-Finecke, and went with him to Kenya, where they directed coffee plantation. They were divorced in 1921. Blixen ran the plantation by herself but in 1931 she returned to Denmark, after fruitless struggles with mismanagement, drought, and the falling price of coffee. Blixen's years in Kenya are depicted in OUT OF AFRICA (1937) - "I had a farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills." This opening also sets the tone of the autobiobragphy - nostalgic, calm, and stoic. The book ends with a view to the same hills: "The outline of the mountain was slowly smoothed and levelled out by the hand of distance." On the coffee-farm Blixen started to write her first book

Syv fantastiske fortællinger og Den afrikanske farm.
Karen Blixens Babettes gæstebud er, som de fleste af hendes fortællinger, henlagt til en fortidig sfære, som i dette tilfælde kan fastsættes til begyndelsen af 1870´erne. Den nordnorske landsby Berlevåg udgør den geografiske scene, hvori en spartansk religiøs menighed lever sit afholdende og strenge liv. To gammeljomfruelige søstre lever under samme tag og opretholder denne religiøse menighed, som deres afdøde fader, en provst og profet, var ophavsmand til. Søstrene har endvidere en eksileret fransk kokkepige boende, som de godhjertet har taget til sig efter hendes flugt fra den franske opstand, Pariserkommunen.
Hendes navn er Babette, og det bliver denne kvindes skæbne og indtrædelse i det puritanske miljø, fortællingen drejer sig om.

Karen Blixen
Karen Blixen was born on her family's rural estate, Rungstedlund, 15 miles north of Copenhagen. The timber and stucco manor house faces the Oresund, the channel dividing Denmark and Sweden. At the age of 28, Karen Blixen left for East Africa to start a pioneer coffee farm with her husband (and second cousin), Baron Bror von Blixen-Finecke. This effort lasted seventeen years, until she returned to Denmark to pursue a literary career in 1931.

Karen Blixen.Karen Blixen is the internationally best known, and possibly the greatest, Danish writer of the twentieth century. Her reputation as an author rests mainly on three novels written in English under the pseudonym Isak Dinesen: Seven Gothic Tales Winter's Tales (1942), and Out of Africa (1938). Several of her novels have been turned into movies, and particularly welknown is Out of Africa (1985), starring among others Meryl Streep and Robert Redford, and celebrating her life as a pioneer coffee farmer in Kenya from 1914 to 1931.

She lived and worked there until her death in 1962, producing her masterpiece Seven Gothic Tales as well as other works including Winter's Tales The Angelic Avengers and Anecdotes of Destiny

Karen Blixen
Karen Blixen er i udlandet bedst kendt som forfatter til den bog, der i 1985 sikrede filmen Mit Afrika en Oscar.
Baronesse Blixen, som hun foretrak at blive kaldt, kom ud af en velhavende københavnsk familie og blev født i 1885. Hun studerede malerkunst på det Danske Kunstakademi og senere i Paris og Rom.
I 1913 giftede hun sig med sin grandfætter, Baron Bror Blixen Finecke. Hjemmet blev herefter Britisk Østafrika, det nuværende Kenya, hvor de drev en kaffeplantage. Selvom opholdet i Afrika ikke var nogen let oplevelse for Karen Blixen, gav det hende materiale til at skrive sine erindringer. Den Afrikanske Farm, som erindringerne kom til at hedde, er kendt verden over i dag.
Hun skrev Den afrikanske Farm efter sin hjemkomst til Rungsted, nord for København, hvor hun blev boende indtil sin død i 1962. På Rungstedlund fortsatte forfatterskabet blandt andet med mesterværket Syv fantastiske Fortællinger sammen med værker som Vinter-Eventyr, Skæbneanekdoter og Gengældelsens Veje. tilbage print siden til toppen

Karen Blixen/Isak Dinesen Biography K aren Blixen remains a complex figure in the writing and history of colonial Africa. Author, storyteller, and early colonizer, she helped to define Africa and its people for the many Europeans who read her novels, chiefly Out of Africa and Shadows on the Grass . Criticism of her work frequently shifts from admiration of her form to outrage at her portrayal of Africans. Karen Blixen's complicated life and work continue to be studied, debated, and questioned in light of both the colonial society she inhabited and the modern reality of a postcolonial world. Karen Blixen in Africa B lixen's marriage proved an unhappy one and resulted in divorce in 1921 as well as a battle with syphilis a few years earlier. Despite this, Blixen found her years in Africa to be her most liberating and challenging. After her divorce, she ran the coffee farm by herself and lived alone, a practice fairly uncommon at the time. She speaks of her years in Africa as a relief from her former life: "Here at long last one was in a position not to give a damn for all conventions, here was a new kind of freedom which until then one had only found in dreams" (29). Blixen found herself outside the Victorian world of Denmark and immersed in the aristocracy of colonial Africa. She earned the coveted status of an early settler-a position that gave her freedom and standing in society life. Her writing of Africa filters through this position of social privilege that enabled her to watch and comment on the natives and the land from a position of authority in the eyes of her time.

Karen Blixen
I had a farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills.
This is how Karen Blixen starts her probably most famous novel Out of Africa, which has been hailed as the greatest pastoral elegy of modernism. She lived in Africa for 17 years of her life and this inspired her to write Out of Africa and Shadows on the Grass. She wrote them, and many of her other novels, under the well-known pen name Isak Dinesen.
Karen Blixen's compelling prose has captured an international audience, a phenomenon facilitated by her ability to write in English, as well as her native tounge, Danish.
Her fantastic plot structures and spectacular life have attracted numerous filmmakers, from Orson Welles to Sydney Pollak.
Karen Blixen wrote in English and made her debut in 1934 in USA with Seven Gothic Tales under the pseudonym "Isak Dinesen". When the book was published in Denmark the year after the reviews span from "ingenious" to "perverse". She also wrote the novel "Ways of Vengeance" under the alias Pierre Andrezel. All her life Karen Blixen was both as a person and author a provocative, controversial figure in Danish culture.

Introduktion til Karen Blixen
Karen Blixen (1885-1962) skabte sit forfatterskab, der mest består af noveller og små romaner, i de sidste 30 år af sit liv, i moderne tid. Men det foregår i en anden tid. Med det samme bliver man klar over, at virkemidlerne er hentet fra en klassisk, formbunden fortællekunst, der var væk på Blixens egen tid, i og med, at denne fortællekunsts åbenlyst konventionssikrede stiltræk ikke har nogen plads i modernismens krav om overensstemmelse mellem formen og indholdets originalitet. Karen Blixens tekster bruger også den klassiske fortællings motiver: Fødsel, død, kærlighed. Fortællingerne handler om skæbnesvanger erotik, længsel og afmagt, forholdet mellem livet og kunsten. Hendes første bog er Seven Gothic Tales (1934), oprindelig skrevet på engelsk og under pseudonyumet Isak Dinesen, (dansk udgave, Syv fantastiske Fortællinger , året efter). Åbningsnovellen Vejene omkring Pisa foregår "i maj 1821". I Vejene omkring Pisa oplever Grev August von Schimmelmann, "en tungsindigt anlagt dansk adelsmand" en række begivenheder, der får ham til at sætte sin egen historie i relief. De små fortællinger, inde i fortællingen, som efterhånden danner et ofte svært gennemskueligt mønster af skæbnetildragelser.

A nonprofit organization whose goal is to perpetuate the memory of the life and times of a Danish author from an African perspective. Includes contact information, reading list and details about the museums.
Karen Blixen Cultural Trust Unmasking her Africa The Karen Blixen Cultural Trust was founded in Nairobi, Kenya in 2001, with the aim of informing the world about the life of Karen Blixen (aka Isak Dinesen), the renowned Danish writer who lived in Africa from 1914 to 1931.
Karen Blixen Cultural Trust is a non-profit organization funded through private donations, as well as grants from institutions, foundations, and other well-wishers. In addition to implementing new projects, programs and informative services related to Karen Blixen`s life in Africa, it also seeks to complement the excellent work done by the Karen Blixen Museum in Nairobi.
So much has been written, recorded and reported about Karen Blixen's life in general, however, this is th first time that specific focus has been placed on her African experiences in detail. The driving force behind the formation of the Karen Blixen Cultural Trust is Ms. Tove Hussein, Danish born author of the much-acclaimed illustrated print documentary, Africa's Song of Karen Blixen (1998), covering the lives of many Africans who knew Karen Blixen during her life in Kenya, and her tremendous impact on them. Ms. Hussein connects researchers and admirers of Karen Blixen to the part of her life that took place in Africa, where Tove lives daily in the very environments which Karen Blixen immortalized in her works. As a founder member of the Karen Blixen Museum in Nairobi, Ms. Hussein has witnessed the great interest, both locally and abroad, expressed by thousands of visitors who come each year to see the people and country which inspired the great writer.

  • Introduction Mercury vs arsenic poisoning Karen Blixen's medicines
  • Introduction
    The high-profile tour did not conceal that the author was ill. She spent part of her three months in the United States on intravenous infusions. At this time of her life, three years before her death, she weighed less than eighty pounds and ate almost nothing. Her hosts offered oysters, grapes, and champagnefoods she could keep downbut even these she ignored in favor of entertaining the assembled guests. Through a variety of hints, confidences, and declarations, she told intimates that she suffered from syphilis. Karen Blixen does not mention her illness in her lyrical memoir Out of Africa . Her book offers her impressions of Africa and the friends she made therenot insights into her private life. Denys Finch Hatton is a friend, not her lover, in her story. Karen Blixen went to Africa to marry her second cousin Bror Blixen and gain the title of Baroness. Her husband was generous with his affections, and his infidelities resulted in her syphilis in their first year of marriage. Bror Blixen recovered without medications, but Karen Blixen's more serious symptoms required that she take mercury and arsenicthe only medicines used to treat the disease at that time. Despite complications, she persevered with her life in Kenya. Years later she developed unusual abdominal pain, which she feared was caused by tabes dorsalis, late syphilis of the spine.
