Evald Tang Kristensen. A lifelong adventure in folklore


DKK 125,00

Evald Tang Kristensen was one of the great collectors of first-hand accounts of peasant life and culture, perhaps the greatest , not only in Denmark but in the World. For sixty years and more (1867 – 1929) he worked incessantly at finding, recording, collating and getting into print the largest body of this material ever assembled by one person. His published Work is more intensive ( more than 30.000 pages) tahn any other Danish writer, including NFS Grundtvig and Georg Brandes. ETK left Dansk Folkemindesamling a collection, said to be three times as mucha Again, of material in ordered form which has never been published. The book gives an idea of the life and character of this extraordinary man, WHO took up an impossible task and because of thes gave us the greatest body of cultural material on peasantry ever assembled in western Europe.
