Andersen, although best known for his masterly fairy tales, was also a travel writer of renown. In 1840 he began a journey that was to take him to Italy, Malta, Greece and the Ottoman Empire. From Constantinople, he went daringly north along the shores of the Black Sea and made his way back to Vienna by sailing up the Danube. Quite a fear. In 1842 he published this book, the best of his travel chrononicles. It is a vivid, colorful and highly personal account that easily carries the readers along to then exotic ports of call in another age of travel. Those who only know Andersen as the author of The Ugly Duckling and The Red Shoes may also find him to be the ideal travel writer.

This book is an all-round presentation of Karen Blixens works. Karen Blixen`s works are explored in the light of a passionate insistence on living out this double nature of the divine and the demonic. The aristocratic viewpoint is in tune with eternity and places no obstructive morality between self and life. The aesthetic guidelines for literary form as advovated by Karen Blixen are discussed, and her view of art is similarly defined and explained as aristocratic. Her private correspondence is drawn upon to shed new light on her life and work. Photographs and color pictures of Karen Blixens art work are also included.
