The mysterious winged horse flies them to the Lake of the Coheeries, but Pearly, now mortal, can pursue Peter beyond the Five Boroughs. After Horse dispatches Pearly's men by crashing the ice so that they all drown, Peter and Pearly engage in a fistfight. Peter is losing until a light shines from the heavens and allows Peter to stab Pearly in the neck with the name plate from the boat, "City of Justice. After visiting Beverly's grave one last time, Peter mounts the horse to be carried away to the stars, while the elderly Willa witnesses his ascension. Initially Warner Bros.

Dinesen's nostalgia for her country and its people can be felt strongly, which is part In a word - magic! Dinesen's nostalgia for her country and its people can be felt strongly, which is part of the spell of these tales. More charm lies in the folk-tale quality of many tales, both in the events recounted and in their unfolding. Each of the tales reads well in isolation but there is a unity of theme in the collection - one biographer sums up the whole in the notion of 'longing' and I would add that the various protagonists' reaction to longing particularly wrestling with forces which oppress is a much explored element throughout.
My favourite rite story? A must-read set of stories for Dinesen enthusiasts - both for their own sake, but also for their status as the author's own favourite. View all 3 comments.

This is just not as good as her earlier collection "Seven Gothic Tales," which has some of the best short stories ever written. That book had a youthful excitement and vigor, full of surprising stories that delighted in the art of keeping the reader on his toes. Much of it seems cold and dead.

It feels as if Dinesen has decided not to be childish any more and instead feels obliged to share great "mature" wisdom with everyone without bothering to tell a ripping good story. But as far as posterity is concerned, that doesn't cut the mustard. Jan 03, L. I picked up this book in the past summer when I was thinking about the "snow queen" H.
Andersen and was just curious to read some more danish fairy tales. But these stories were not what I expected, i. They are 11 stories, mostly romantic except 3 of them. I liked very much the narrative style with colorful descriptions, fjord-ish construction and sometimes unexpected situations.
I also enjoyed some of the fantastic elements.

Really something special. May 11, C B rated it it was amazing. I love to read but I don't understand loving words, the sound of them, the interplay of them. The value of words and reading to me is to share information and ideas. Isak Dinesen makes me start to understand people who love words.

I actually never saw it until an adult, but my mother bought the film tie-in copy of Out of Africa and Shadows On the Grass which I read cover to cover two or three times in high school -- and my Dinesen obsession was born. This collection of eleven short stories has the feel of a 19th-century fairy tale collection; while reading, I found myself musing if these stories were the ones Kare Like many Americans I suspect , my introduction to Isak Dinesen was via the film version of Out of Africa.
This collection of eleven short stories has the feel of a 19th-century fairy tale collection; while reading, I found myself musing if these stories were the ones Karen recounted to Denys while they were in Kenya. Some were pure magic while others were meditations on religion, family, or obligation. There were delightful passages in every story, wryly funny and very true, such as: "Jensine would never have married a man whom she did not love; she held the god of love in great respect, and had already for some years sent a little daily prayer to him: "Why doest thou tarry?

Sorrow Acre was my favorite of the short stories. For example, this is the first paragraph -- "The low, undulating Danish landscape was silent and serene, mysteriously wide-awake in the hour before sunrise.
There was not a cloud in the pale sky, not a shadow alone the dim, pearly fields, hills and woods. The Mist was lilting from the valleys and hollows, the air was cool, the grass and the foliage dripping wet with morning-dew. Unwatched by the eyes of man, and She was an excellent story writer. Unwatched by the eyes of man, and undisturbed by his activity, the country breathed a timeless life, to which language was inadequate.
In , Karen Blixen began to write under the nom de plume Isak Dinesen. Her book, Seven Gothic Tales was her first book and was a literary success. Feb 15, Katharine rated it it was amazing Shelves: In fact, I'm planning on buying everything by this author and I rarely am that passionate. Blixen reminds me a lot of Flannery O'connor in the religious imagery, the intensity of the characterization and the perplexing endings. Pity the poor author who I read next. Jan 13, Cole R rated it liked it. This was a great book. I loved all the different stories this book had to tell!
SOOOO much detail! Jul 02, Hilda rated it it was amazing. Love her. DNF at 82 pages. The first four stories didn't work for me. Not sure what was missing, but I just don't want to continue. Mar 19, Kathie added it Shelves: short-stories. Short story collections are difficult to rate. Liked some, hated some. Most of these stories don't feel fairy tale like to me as the description suggests, partly because of the plethora of religious references drinking game suggestion: take a shot any time she mentions daily bread.
Would've liked translations included for the French and Latin phrases peppered throughout.
Aug 24, George Witte rated it it was amazing. I spent a week in thrall to these tales, each one a world that opens immediately--as if evoked, fully-fledged and fleshed, by "once upon a time"--and closes completely, like a stone tossed into a vast, calm, black lake.

No-one writes like this anymore; so many writers feel the need to research their fiction and then over-play that research, letting knowledge overwhelm the story rather than inform it. These stories are wholly engrossing and just plain entertaining, the way fables are to children, especially when read aloud.

Short story collections are always inconsistent: some stories you want to read again and again, and some leave you cold. This collection happened to lean toward the first. Dinesen writes beautifully, absolutely beautifully. From "The Sailor-Boy's Tale": "It was April, the sky and sea were so clear that it was difficult to hold one's eyes up against them - salt, infinitely wide, and filled with bird-shrieks - as if someone were incessantly whetting invisible knives, on all sides, high up in Heaven Short story collections are always inconsistent: some stories you want to read again and again, and some leave you cold.

Another reason these stories struck me: I believe I have finally found an author whose love for the ocean can be quantified only with infinity.
It's like being an alien and finally finding another of your species.
Every time she writes of the sea with a reverence that reverberates all throughout me, it's a light calling me to the hearth. Oct 04, Wendy Feltham rated it really liked it. Reading the short stories in Winter's Tales, many set in Denmark and often a century before she wrote them, I became immersed in the characters and surprising twists in her tales, making my visit to her home so special! I walked through the forest around her house, appreciating that she had left instructions for it to be a bird sanctuary, and stood under a huge beech tree where she is buried.
Karen Blixen was a multitalented and thoughtful woman who created stunning homes filled with art, including her own paintings, interesting furniture, and vases filled with flowers cut from her own gardens. Dec 24, Amber Ridenour rated it really liked it. There are some fairy-tale elements to this book; mostly it's the tone. Each tale might as well begin with, "once upon a time. But only the sailor boy's story has elements of magical realism. The transforming power of the stories comes from their acknowledgement of the intricacies of human nature.
In mos There are some fairy-tale elements to this book; mostly it's the tone. In most of the stories, nothing "magical" happens; it is the characters' recognition of foreign feelings and flashes of insight that provide the "fairy-tale" endings; the conclusions are surprising, yet inevitable. Mar 27, Bryant rated it really liked it. The heavenly scent goes to the head and to the heart; it seems to unite the fields of Denmark with those of Elysium; it contains both hay, honey, and holy incense, and is half fairy-land and half apothecary's locker.
The avenue was changed into a mystic edifice, a dryad's cathedral, outward from summit to base lavishly adorned, set with multitudinous ornaments, and "In all the short lifetime of Danish summer there is no richer or more luscious moment than that week wherein the lime trees flower. The avenue was changed into a mystic edifice, a dryad's cathedral, outward from summit to base lavishly adorned, set with multitudinous ornaments, and golden in the sun. But behind the walls the vaults were benignly cool and sombre, like ambrosial sanctuaries in a dazzling and burning world, and in here the ground was still moist.
May 30, Jessica Fitting rated it really liked it. It felt like an accomplishment finishing this short story collection, and I really did enjoy it despite how long it took to finish!! Each story was richly told, allegory heavy, and often had a story within a story so it wasn't light reading. I loved that some of these would ever so slightly bend towards fantasy supernatural in the tiniest ways, and almost all of them were based around Danish history and values.

I can't actually pick a favorite now, and I think I'll have to sit a little longer with these stories to know how I feel about all of them. This was definitely outside my comfort zone, but absolutely worth diving into the completely foreign scenes that Dinesen creates.

Nov 17, Ruth rated it it was ok. Dinesen's Out of Africa is one of my all time favorites. But with the exception of Babette's Feast, I find her fiction hard going. It seems to operate at a remove for me. Maybe it's the fable-like quality, but I'm seeing through a glass darkly.

The one that will always stay with me is about a young man of age who was to have come into his uncle's wealth until the uncle remarries the young fiance of his deceased son. Our young man is okay with this and has long yearned to go off on his own to seek his fortune anyway. Before he goes, he makes the trip to visit the uncle.
While there his uncle tells him the story of a young man put in the frame for setting fire to the uncle's barn and fields on some further property. There is no proof of this but his two men of the property say the lad must have done it while the lad claims his innocence. The boy's old mother has come to the uncle to beg leniency on behalf of her boy. The uncle allows that it shall be so if the old mother can harvest his large field of grain ready for the harvest. If she is successful, her lad will go free. But if she if not, the lad will be imprisoned.
The following day is the day of the harvest and before sunup the old woman is in the field cutting the yield of the harvest. The uncle sits and watches her and waits and finds himself mentally urging her on and hoping that she is successful. He orders her son brought out to walk along with her and encourage her. By late afternoon she is still working hard but the work is beginning to tell on her.
The nephew tells her uncle: Doesn't he see that this hard work is killing the old mother? But the uncle, while he is sympathetic with the woman, feels that it would make him look weak in the eyes of his workers to give in and make her work easier. And so she works and sweats under the hot sun. Just at sundown she cuts the last of the grain and slumps forward.

This one's difficult for me, as I enjoyed it immensely but felt it was hiding itself from me for most of my reading - or I wasn't looking hard enough.
A series of short stories centered around Denmark, ships and young girls, and at a crossroads between fairy-tales and a bleaker realism. None of them end in nihilism, but few have traditionally have happy endings - for example, in Sorrow-Acre it ends with death, and in lingering philosophical uncertainty, but I still held the feeling that something This one's difficult for me, as I enjoyed it immensely but felt it was hiding itself from me for most of my reading - or I wasn't looking hard enough.
