Gustav Wied

Author Code: NGWD

Born: Mar. 6, 1858 - Holmegaard, Naskov, Denmark

Died: Oct. 24, 1914 - Roskilde, Denmark

The son of a successful farmer, Wied first worked as an apprentice to a bookseller. He then spent several years as a private tutor and some time as an actor before turning to writing. His experiences in the provinces provided a sound backdrop to many of his works. Wied was a natural cynic and social critic, such criticism once landing him in jail. His first play was produced in 1889 and he would go on to have great success in the theater for many years. He began, however, to lose popularity in the latter part of the first decade of the 1900's. He committed suicide in 1914 by consuming potassium cyanide. Wied's satirical humour has unfortunately not been translated into English apart from Autumn Fires in 1920. His works are still extremely popular in Denmark, and include Et Bryllupsnat (1892), Slaegten (1898), Livsens Ondskab (1899), Thummelumsen (1901), Den Gamle Pavillion (1902), Circus Mundi (1909), Imellem Slagene (1914) and Digt og Virklighed (1914).
