Jens Baggesen

a.k.a. Jens Immanuel Baggesen

Author Code: NJIB

Born: Feb. 15, 1764 - Korsor, Denmark

Died: Oct. 3, 1826 - Hamburg, Germany

From an extremely poor background, Baggesen managed to enter the University of Copenhagen in 1782, where he met and became friends with Prince Frederik Christian. This friendship allowed Baggesen to write without economic constraints and in 1785, he published his first success in Comical Tales (Komiske Fortaellinger) a work in verse. The work was extremely popular and made him a national favourite. In 1789, he wrote Holger Danske, an opera which met with outrage because of the feelings between Denmark and Germany at the time. He left Denmark to travel around Europe, spending time in France, Switzerland and Germany, where he spent many years, before settling in Paris. He published many works in German and also translated Holberg's Nils Klim's Rejse from Latin into Danish. In 1790, he published Labyrinth in Danish and returned to Denmark to popular acclaim. For the next 16 years, he traveled around Europe until returning to Denmark in 1806 when he settled in Copenhagen. He returned to Paris in 1820. After the loss of his wife and child in 1822, he went into a state of depression, landed for a time in debtor's prison and his health deteriorated. In 1826, he decided to return to Denmark, but died en route. Baggesen is a very important part of Scandinavian literature. Hie other works include Landforvandlingen (1787), Parthenais (1803), Heideblumen (1808), Poetic Epistles (1814), Rosenblade Med et par Torne (1819) and Adam og Eva (1826).
