Read full description of the books Skæbne-Anekdoter:
This is the first time I have read this collection, but I have read the single story Babette's Feast in the past, after seeing the movie of the same name. The story of the mysterious servant and what she does to repay her benefactors for their thoughtfulness toward her is beautifully told. Very few authors are able to create the moods that Dinesen manages with her words.
The 'Other Anecdotes of Destiny' in this volume include The Diver, with its main character who yearns to talk with angels so much that he builds himself a pair of wings.
There is also Tempests, dealing with a young actress and the way her life is affected by a shipwreck in Norway.
The Immortal Story talks of two men, a merchant in Canton China and his clerk, and how their lives become woven together.
And finally, The Ring, relating what happens to a young Danish couple one July.
I know I am not giving much detail, but I am still lost in Dinesen's world. I feel as if I have just eaten a lovely, flaky pastry; something full of layers, flavors and textures that need time to settle before I understand it all. I want to savor just now, not analyze. But I found passion, hope, despair, joy, love, philosophy, terror, poetry, images that change subtly into unexpected reflections of the world, stories within stories within stories.
I felt very much as if I were sitting by a fire listening to an expert storyteller. Aren't we lucky when we find books that make us feel that way?!
