Marie Grubbe: A Lady of the Seventeenth Century
By Jens Peter Jacobsen
The historical novel Fru Marie Grubbe (first published in English in 1917) is the first Danish treatment of a woman as a sexual creature. It is based on the life of an authentic 17th century Danish noblewoman, and charts her downfall from a member of the royal family to the wife of a ferryman, as a result of her desire for an independent and satisfying erotic life. In many ways the books anticipates the themes of D. H. Lawrence.
