The Diary Of A Parish Clerk And Other Stories by Steen Steensen Blicher

The 19th Century Danish writer, Steen Steensen Blicher deserves to stand alonngside the great writers of world literature, from Boccaccio to Manupassant, 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 19th Century. Although the subject matter is deeply and truely that of Denmark, his account of human relationships is timeless and he deploys the true storyteller's art.
