great accessible translations!
I have no special background in Danish verse or even poetry, but wanted to express my admiration for this collection of 19th century Danish poetry, which was expertly translated by Robert Hillyer, who later won the Pulitzer Prize in poetry. Also translating was S. Foster Damon, a famous Blake scholar (both were at Harvard). Includes a more modern translation of an early HC Andersen poem, The Dying Child.
