Isak Dinesen

  • The Wine of the Tetrarch

    This story by ISAK DINESEN, Denmark’s leading writer and in private life the Baronesse Karen Blixen, is a revision and elaboration of an episode which originally appeared in her famous book, SEVEN GOTHIC TALES. Readers who were fortunate will remember how effectively she read this aloud on her visit to this country earlier this year.
