Winner of the National Book Award A brilliant literary portrait, Isak Dinesen remains the only comprehensive biography of one of the greatest storytellers of our time. Her magnificent memoir, Out of Africa, established Isak Dinesen as a major twentieth-century author, who was twice nominated for the Nobel Prize. With exceptional grace, Judith Thurman's classic work explores Dinesen's life. Until the appearance of this book, the life and art of Isak Dinesen have been--as Dinesen herself wrote of two lovers in a tale-- "a pair of locked caskets, each containing the key to the other." Judith Thurman has provided the master key to them both.

Although Isak Dinesen has been widely acclaimed as a popular writer, her work has received little sustained critical attention. In this revisionist study, Susan Hardy Aiken takes up the complex relations of gender, sexuality, and representation in Dinesen's narratives. Drawing on feminist, psychoanalytic, and post-structuralist theories, Aiken shows how the form and meaning of Dinesen's texts are affected by her doubled situations as a Dane who wrote in English, a European who lived for many years in Africa, and a woman who wrote under a male pseudonym within a male-centered literary tradition. In a series of readings that range across Dinesen's career, Aiken demonstrates that Dinesen persistently asserted the inseparability of gender and the engendering of narrative. She argues that Dinesen's texts anticipate in remarkable ways some of the most radical insights of contemporary literary theories, particularly those of French feminist criticism. Aiken also offers a major rereading of Out of Africa that both addresses its distinctiveness as a colonialist text and places it within Dinesen's larger oeuvre. In Aiken's account, Dinesen's work emerges as a compelling inquiry into sexual difference and the ways it informs culture, subjectivity, and the language that is their medium. This important book will at last give Isak Dinesen's work the prominence it deserves in literary studies.

Die Frau, die den Himmel bezwang. Aufgewachsen als Tochter eines Lords im afrikanischen Busch, interessiert sich die junge Beryl nicht für Seidenkleider und Etikette. Dafür ist sie stark und mutig wie ein Kipsigis-Junge und hat von ihrem Vater alles über Rassepferde gelernt. Doch im britischen Protektorat – dem späteren Kenia – der vorigen Jahrhundertwende ist kein Platz für solch ein ungezähmtes Mädchen. Bis sie in Karen Blixen eine Seelenverwandte findet – und in deren Geliebtem, dem Flieger und Großwildjäger Denys Finch Hutton, das Abenteuer ihres Lebens. Die Autorin des internationalen Bestsellers „Madame Hemingway“ erzählt in diesem großen Afrika-Epos die wahre Geschichte der Flugpionierin Beryl Markham, die als erste Frau den Atlantik überquerte.

Die perfekte Lektüre für lange Herbst- und Winterabende Von der Gluthitze Afrikas in die Wintersonne des Nordens. Wie in ihren Erinnerungen »Jenseits von Afrika«, die durch die legendäre Verfilmung zum Bestseller wurden, erweist sich Tania Blixen auch in »Wintergeschichten« als Erzählerin von Weltrang. Ernest Hemingway sagte von ihr, dass sie an seiner Stelle den Literaturnobelpreis hätte erhalten sollen. Diese Ehre blieb ihr versagt. Doch ihr Werk hat sich einen festen Platz im Herzen der Leser erobert, ihre großartigen Geschichten haben bis heute nichts von ihrer Strahlkraft eingebüßt.

This is an introduction to the writings of the Scandinavian writer Isak Dinesen, whose works have attracted a passionate following throughout the world, and especially in the United States. Highly regarded by a generation that followed her televised trip to America in the 1950s and by a later generation who watched the Oscar-winning 1985 film Out of Africa, Dinesen gained her initial literary success in the United States. In this guide Susan Brantly illumines the complexities that enrich not only Dinesen's fictional works but also the memoir she wrote of her time in Kenya.
