- Publisher A collection of writings by Denmark's most influential 19th-century educationalists, philosophers and theologians, who left an indelible mark on the cultural and public life of his country.

- Publisher Thought the people's high school movement has made Grundtvig's name internationally known - W.B. Yeats recalls in his autobiography that he often heard A.E. tell how Grundtvig educated Denmark - few outside Scandinavia will know of his ideas and personality from his own words. To remedy this situation, this anthology offers selections from his major works in English translation. There is a general introduction to his life and writings, and the individual chapters have explanatory prefaces by leading authorities on Grundtvig's monumental body of work. In the extracts included here, Grundtvig discusses Norse mythology, education, freedom and religion; he comments acutely on the national characteristics of the great nations of Europe; and his sermons and poetry are also represented. This is an excellent introduction to the writings of one of Denmark's greatest thinkers.
