"En un aislado pueblo de pescadores en la costa danesa, la comunidad practica, los principios religiosos que el pastor ha predicado durante años.

Sept contes gothiques by Karen Blixen( Book )
140 editions published between 1934 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 298 libraries worldwide
Empruntant un masque masculin, la baronne Blixen avait d'abord publié les Sept Contes gothiques sous le nom d'Isak Dinesen en 1935. Le sortilège ici est d'une nature singulière, animé de personna-ges réalistes sur fond d'aventures vécues, mais où le naturel confine au délire, où le fantastique chevauche le réel, franchissant avec désinvolture des limites qui ne sont pas aussi nettes qu'on voudrait nous le faire croire. Après un raz de marée sur la côte danoise, une vieille demoiselle noble qui s'invente un passé de courtisane, un valet de chambre assassin déguisé en cardinal capable de faire des miracles, une jeune femme fugueuse et un garçon mélancolique se réfugient dans un grenier en attendant la mort ou une barque libératrice. Dans une autre histoire, deux sœurs restées vierges par amour pour leur bandit de frère dînent avec le fantôme de celui-ci. Contes gothiques, contes romantiques venus du pays d'Hamlet... Avec Karen Blixen, dame errante d'un univers disparu, les vieilles lunes rajeunissent et sont contemplées dans un éternel présent. [payot.ch]

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
