Pelle the Conqueror

by Martin Anderson Nexo

Has little story interest but is a minute and faithful picture of the life of a Danish peasant as lived by Pelle, a Swedish lad, who was taken to Denmark by his father. This work has been called the Jean Christophe of poverty. It spares the reader none of the hardness, coarseness and crudeness, but the spirit in the boy rises above all and redeems the book. Translated from the Danish by Jesse Muir and Bernard Miall
