About Author

Martin Andersen Nexö

Martin Andersen Nexø (1869-1954) was a Danish author best known for his novel "Pelle the Conqueror," which is considered a masterpiece of Scandinavian literature. Nexø was born on the Danish island of Bornholm and grew up in poverty. His father was a shoemaker, and Nexø left school at an early age to work as a carpenter's apprentice. Nexø's early life experiences deeply influenced his writing. He became involved in left-wing political movements and was active in the labor movement, which informed his later writing. In 1893, he moved to Copenhagen to pursue a career as a writer. Nexø went on to write several other novels and plays, including "Ditte Menneskebarn" (1921-22) and "Midt i en Jærntid" (1935-37). He was also a prominent figure in the Danish Communist Party and was twice elected to the Danish parliament. Nexø spent much of his later life in the Soviet Union, where he was awarded the Stalin Peace Prize in 1951. He died in Dresden, Germany in 1954. Today, Nexø is remembered as one of the most important Danish writers of the 20th century, and his work continues to be celebrated for its powerful portrayal of the struggles of the working-class and the fight for social justice.
