Karl Gjellerup

a.k.a. Karl Adolph Gjellerup

Author Code: NKAG

Born: Jun. 2, 1857 - Praestoe, Denmark

Died: Oct. 11, 1919 - Klotzsche, Germany

Educated at Haerslev Grammar School, where he graduated summa cum laude in 1874, Gjellerup continued his studies and earned a BD in 1878. That year he published his first work, An Idealist and became acquainted with many of Denmark's literati. In 1881, he won the University Gold Medal for his Heredity and Morals, and later that year published Hawthorne a book of poetry that was highly regarded. In 1883, he traveled in Europe, spending three months in Rome where he studied water colour. In 1885, he settled in Dresden until 1887 when he married and returned to Denmark. Over the next five years he produced some of his best work. He returned to Dresden in 1892 and began to write primarily in German and produced a number of plays and novels over the next twenty years. In 1917, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature together with his countryman Henrik Pontoppidan. During the latter years of his life, he was greatly influenced by Buddhism and this was evident in a number of his works. His works include The Learner of German (1882), Saint Just (1885), Thamyris (1887), Minna (1889), The Mill (1896), The Sacrificial Fires (1903), The Pilgrim Kaminita (1906), The Wife of the Prefect (1907), The World Travellers (1910), The Country Practice of Rudolph Sten (1913), The Friends of God (1916) and The Holiest Animal (1919).
