Karl Gjellerup (1857 - 1919), a Danish Nobel laureate in literature, is renowned for his novels including "The Learner of German", "The Mill" and "The Pilgrim Kamanita", the latter still being on the school programme in some Buddhist countries. He published his acclaimed novel "Minna" in 1889. It is a love story set in Dresden (Germany). Partly autobiographical, the book recreates some events of Gjellerup's own youth. The Nobel Prize website describes it as "a delicate study of feminine psychology which must be classed in the highest rank of Scandinavian novels."
