Notă biografică

ISAK DINESEN was the pen-name of Karen Blixen, who was born in Rungsted, Denmark in 1885. After studying art at Copenhagen, Paris and Rome, she married her cousin, Baron Bror Blixen-Finecke, in 1914. Together they went to Kenya to manage a coffee plantation. After their divorce in 1921, she continued to run the plantation until a collapse in the coffee market forced her back to Denmark in 1931.

Although she had written occasional contributions to Danish periodicals since 1905 (under thenom de plumeof Osceola), her real début took place in 1934 with the publication ofSeven Gothic Tales, written in English under her pen-name.Out of Africa(1937) is an autobiographical account of the years she spent in Kenya. Most of her subsequent books were published in English and Danish simultaneously, includingWinter’s Tales(1942) andThe Angelic Avengers(1946), under the name of Pierre Andrézol. Among her other collections of stories areLast Tales(1957),Anecdotes of Destiny(1958),Shadows on the Grass(1960) andEhrengard(1963). All of these books are published by Penguin.

Baroness Blixen died in Rungsted in 1962.
