FROM THE PUBLISHER - In Isak Dinesenís universe, the magical enchantment of the fairy tale and the moral resonance of myth coexist with an unflinching grasp of the most obscure human strengths and weaknesses. A despairing author abandons his wife, but in the course of a long nightís wandering, he learns loveís true value and returns to her, only to find her a different woman than the one he left. A landowner, seeking to prove a principle, inadvertently exposes the ferocity of mother love. A wealthy young traveler melts the hauteur of a lovely woman by masquerading as her aged and loyal servant. Shimmering and haunting, Dinesenís WINTERíS TALES transport us, through their authorís deft guidance of our desire to imagine, to the mysterious place where all stories are born.
