Abstract

A Stranger in His Own House: Nothingness and Alienation in Henrik Pontoppidan’s Lucky Per Claus Elholm Andersen University of Wisconsin–Madison A Great Author Has Been R eported Dead Six years before his death, in 1937, the Czech newspaper Prager Welt- bühne printed an obituar y about the Danish Nobel Prize- winning author Henrik Pontoppidan. The reason behind the premature obituary was that celebratory writings in Danish newspapers, due to Pontoppidan’s recent eightieth birthday, had led to a rumor in the Ger speaking man- world that the Danish author had died. The obituary in Prager Weltbühne was written by Ernst Bloch, the German philosopher. It starts with Bloch dramatically proclaiming that “a great author has been reported dead Ein großer Dichter ist ” ( tot gemeldt). In most obituaries, this would probably be followed by a short biographical sketch, but not in Bloch’s piece on Pontoppidan. The only biographical information offered in the obituary is a short mentioning of the fact that Pontoppidan was a Nobel laureate, though Bloch does not mention that it was in 1917 that Pontoppidan won the Nobel Prize, which he shared with the now known lesser-author Karl 1. http://www.henrikpontoppidan.dk/text/seclit/secartikler/bloch.html.
