Best known for her award winning memoir Out of Africa, Karen Blixen also wrote several other works In addition to being a farmer rancher adventurer, she was, in fact, a very good writer, and that is evident in this short work, Babette s Feast It s the story of a French woman, exiled during the political upheaval in her country, who seeks asylum in a small Norwegian village with two pious sisters But Babette has a secret, and when good fortune smiles upon her, she uses her secret to repay the sis [...]
This is an astonishingly good story, there is an awful lot packed into a small space What I enjoyed most about this story is the sustained irony, the way that familiar things are stood on their heads, and how well the writer plays variations on a theme.A great deal of this story s effect depends on familiarity with some once well known Christian themes and images, which may make it less accessible for some.
This was a short novella about a young woman Babette who finds shelter from the civil war in France with two sisters She stays for many years, cooking the bland food the expect but than asks a favor She wants to prepare a French feast for the women and their guests on their Father s birthday.Enjoyed this very much There is some subtle humor and even a bit of a mystery Who really is this mysterious Babette Why at her dinner do the guests find themselves changing Quite a good story from an author [...]
This is absolutely wonderful This novella is only 52 pages long There is no possible excuse for not being able to find time to read this book I remember the wonderful movie, but this is even better The characterizations of the people are funny and moving Great prose I adore it Add it to the top of your reading lists I have read about half, 25 pages I read Out of Africa ages ago Was it this good Should I reread it On completion Oh, it was too short I got interested and then a door was slammed in [...]

You may read online here.From In 19th century Denmark, two adult sisters live in an isolated village with their father, who is the honored pastor of a small Protestant church that is almost a sect unto itself Although they each are presented with a real opportunity to leave the village, the sisters choose to stay with their father, to serve to him and their church After some years, a French woman refugee, Babette, arrives at their door, begs them to take her in, and commits herself to work for t [...]
The story and the language translation are so quaint As it such a short story, it would be difficult to summarise and add detail to the publisher s blurb, without spoilers, so I won t What I would say, though, is that this is a book that I could read several times, and learn something new each time You know how it is when you view a detailed oil painting for the tenth time, and notice something that you ve never seen before Well, this is the equivalent in book form.Watch out for a lesson in grac [...]

Saw this in the library and assuming it was translated from Danish, took it out Found that she wrote in English, though, which strikes me as a bit odd.It read nicely, but was a collection of individual moments than an actual story Also, as is usual for tales like this, there seemed to be a message which I didn t get I ended the book thinking right er , which is never a good sign as a response to art There was an afterword about Blixen s life and work which said she had a troubled life and wrote [...]
This is a lovely little tale about two elderly sisters living in Norway in the late 19th century, entrenched in their religious, spinsterly lives, and their exiled French cook, who spends her lottery winnings on one fine feast, the likes of which no one in the small town has ever seen before It is about the meeting of opposites lives, values, people, and about the potential bridging of gaps, about sensuousness and duty, about the choices we make in life and those that are made for us I read list [...]

Babette s FeastBy Isak DinesenThe basic plot Two aging Norwegian maiden sisters, the daughters of the leader of a puritanical religious sect, take in a French woman who has fallen upon hard times and who turns out to be a marvelous cook After many years, she discovers she has won a lottery and spends her entire winnings on a fabulous dinner she creates for the sisters and their fellow congregants in gratitude She gives everything of herself and, in doing so, transforms the Norwegians, who learn [...]
I used to love Isak Dineson but haven t read anything of hers in something like fifteen years or , and obviously my reading tastes have changed during that time because I was left underwhelmed by this one I definitely remember liking the movie version better.
Pu il risultato di tanti lunghi anni di vittorie risolversi in una sconfitta Ne avrei fatto volentieri a meno.

I m not an enormous fan of short stories, but I quite liked this one The writing was lovely and engaging, and I ll certainly be looking to read by this author.
The story is wonderfully written Sparse, almost spartan, yet deep The simplicity of the writing highlights the extravagance of the feast Philip Yancey was so right to use it to explain God s grace Through all the world there goes one long cry from the heart of the artist Give me leave to do my utmost would that all Christians made this their life s cry QUOTES May my food my body maintain, may my body my soul sustain, may my soul in deed and word Give thanks for all things to the Lord God s paths [...]

The film of this story is one of my very favourites It s the film I watch when I m tired out, sad, or just want a mental vacation First saw it on Dec 31, 1991, and don t know how many times I ve seen it since then I knew Karen Blixen wrote short stories, but having read Out of Africa and been seriously unimpressed what kind of person describes shooting a lion as an act of love I was wary of reading any of her output For this, however, I made an exception The film literally brings the story to l [...]
