MicroReview 2: Niels Lyhne

Jacobsen, Jens Peter. Niels Lyhne. Trans Tiina Nunnally. Penguin Classics. London: Penguin, 2007 (Copenhagen, 1880). ISBN 978-0143039815.

(Original Danish edition: ISBN 978-8721029005.)

Classic novel on the challenge for a still constrained Nordic culture in absorbing Europe’s expansive ideals. Even better in the original. My rating: *****/5.
