Henrik Pontoppidan

Author Code: NHPX

Born: Jul. 24, 1857 - Fredericia, Denmark

Died: Aug. 21, 1943 - Charlottenlund, Denmark

One of 16 children of a Lutheran minister, Pontoppidan studied engineering at the Copenhagen Polytechnic Institute and received his degree in 1877. He then taught at a high school for some years before turning to a literary career. In 1881, he published Clipped Wings, a collection of short stories which became very popular. A realist whose works describe the everyday life of ordinary people in Denmark, Pontoppidan shared the 1917 Nobel Prize in Literature with Karl Gjellerup. His most famous novel is undoubtedly Lykke Per (Lucky Peter), a partly autobiographical work that won rave reviews. Pontoppidan is still an important influence in Danish literature today and is required reading in schools. His other works include Village Pictures (1883), Young Love (1885), Ghosts (1888), The Apothecary's Daughter (1890), The Old Adam (1894), Emanuel, or, The Children of the Soil (1896), The Royal Guest (1908), The Kingdom of the Dead (1916), Man's Heaven (1927), Boyhood Years (1933), Family Life (1940) and On the Way to Myself (1943).
