About the author (1979)

As a critic of the form and content of civilization since the Middle Ages, Martin A. Hansen believed that humanity and morality deteriorated as rationalism and scientism became the guiding lights of European culture. In his childhood, Hansen personally observed the disintegration of rural folk culture when economic and agricultural requirements modernized country life. His participation in the Danish Underground during World War II also greatly increased his sense of the failure of modern times to provide ethical stability. His modernistic prose is highly symbolic and, at times, eludes logical interpretation, but nonetheless his writing delineates its message clearly.
