Karen Blixen's Babettes Gæstebud by Gabriel Axel( Visual )

25 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Siglo XIX. En una remota aldea de Dinamarca viven dos hermanas, ancianas ya, envueltas en la nostalgia de una lejana juventud, en la que su educación, profundamente puritana, las obligó a renunciar a toda posibilidad de ser felices. Solteras pues, viven en una digna austeridad, hasta que aparece entre ellas Babette, quien llega huyendo del terror de su natal París. Al poco tiempo tendrá oportunidad de corresponder a la bondad y al calor con que fue acogida. Un buen premio de lotería le permite organizar una opulenta cena con los platillos y vinos de la mejor gastronomía francesa. A esta cena son invitados los vecinos, todos fanáticamente puritanos. Aceptan ir, pero entre sí pactan no dar ninguna muestra de gozo o disfrute de lo que comen y beben, porque sería pecaminoso. Sin embargo, es tal la fuerza seductora de las viandas que, poco a poco, en un ceremonial intenso y emotivo, van cediendo a la sensualidad que implica gozar de los prodigios de la cocina francesa

The author of Seven Gothic Tales gives a true account of her life on her plantation in Kenya. She tells with classic simplicity of the ways of the country and the natives: of the beauty of the Ngong Hills and coffee trees in blossom: of her guests, from the Prince of Wales to Knudsen, the old charcoal burner, who visited her: of primitive festivals: of big game that were her near neighbors -- lions, rhinos, elephants, zebras, buffaloes -- and of Lulu, the little gazelle who came to live with her, unbelievably ladylike and beautiful

Isak Dinesen, pseudónimo de la escritora de lenguas danesa e inglesa Karen Blixen, cuya obra está marcada indeleblemente por sus experiencias de casi veinte años en Kenia (1913-1931), donde radicó con su esposo y primo, el barón sueco Bror Von Flixen-Finecke, y sostuvo una relación amorosa con el cazador inglés Denys Finch Hatton. Aunque desde 1907 ya había publicado algunas obras, como La familia Cats (1909) o La venganza de la verdad (1926), el inicio formal de su trayectoria literaria se produjo al volver a su natal Dinamarca, con Siete cuentos góticos (1934), por los que alcanzó un gran reconocimiento, pero el parteaguas lo demarcó su siguiente obra: Memorias de Africa (1937, también traducida como Africa mía y Lejos de Africa), galardonadas con el Premio Viaje en 1939. La autora, quien durante toda su vida adulta sufrió problemas permanentes de salud, mantuvo su actividad durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial con Cuentos de invierno (1942) y la novela The Angelic Avengers (1944), aunque hubo de aguardar más de una década para publicar su siguiente libro, Last Tales (1957), al tiempo que era postulada en dos ocasiones para el Premio Nobel (1954 y 1957). Anécdotas del destino (1958) y la autobiográfica Shadows of the Grass (1963) conforman la última etapa de la obra aparecida en vida de Blixen, de quien han sido editados en forma póstuma Ehrengard (1963), Carnaval: recreaciones y cuentos póstumos (1977) y Cartas de Africa (1981), entre otros títulos. Admirada por sus contemporáneos Ernest Hemingway o Truman Capote, la carismática figura de la escritora, baronesa y viajejera danesa se ha mantenido también en el imaginario a través de adaptaciones fílmicas, como las de las novelas An Inmortal Story (1968), por Orson Welles, y El festín de Babette (1987), por Gabriel Axel, o Africa mía (1985), película de Sydney Pollack, basada en las memorias y correspondencia de Dinesen
