Description:

Madison. 1966. University Of Wisconsin Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. 24. 724 pages. hardcover. keywords:. inventory # 27648. FROM THE PUBLISHER - ĎIíll soon be thirty years old, but I donít think Iíve ever held the present moment in my hand, like a smooth, warm stone, and not wanted something else.í As he reflected on the past fifteen years, Jorgen Stein saw an endless struggle to formulate a philosophy of life which could sustain him as he grew older. Misled by the false optimism of a materialistic society, young Jorgen abandoned his conservative values and stable family heritage, stumbled through a series of unsatisfying jobs and disillusioning personal experiences, and finally turned to simple farm life in the desperate hope of finding some meaning for his restless life. Like all of Danish society-particularly Ďthe generation that stumbled at the startí so strikingly interpreted in this novel-Jorgen Stein was unable to adjust to the changes resulting from the outbreak of World War I, and through a series of faulty decisions, he continued to flounder at every turn. A reader of this novel need not look to the critic for explanation and guidance, for the story Jacob Paludan tells is lucid, the problems real, and the characters so convincing that its impact has been felt for three decades since it first appeared in two parts in 1932 and 1933. Jacob Paludan, born in 1896 and trained as a pharmacist in Denmark, spent two years abroad in Ecuador and New York where he began to write. Having had two manuscripts rejected by Danish publishers, Paludan returned to Copenhagen in 1922 with a third manuscript which became his first published novel, De vestlige Veje (The Western Roads). A volume of poems followed rapidly along with other books including Sogelys (Searchlight), a sequel to the first novel, and by 1924 Paludan was able to support himself by his writing. With the completion of JORGEN STEIN, he attained full stature as a novelist and turned to other genres. As a newspaper critic, editor, and essayist, Paludan currently finds a wide and steady audience, but his magnum opus, Jorgen Stein, remains the most noted of his contributions and has tended to diminish the significance of his later books and volumes of essays. .
