With the mysterious arrival of Babette, a refugee from France's civil war, life for two pious sisters and their tiny hamlet begins to change.

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
