    "Holger Danske," or "Ogier the Dane"

  1. Author: Andersen, Hans Christian
    Title: "Holger Danske," or "Ogier the Dane"
    Date: 1845
    Genre: fiction
    Note Relating to Cather: Holger Danske is a mythical protector of Denmark who lives in a castle called Kronborg (the surname of Cather's protagonist in Song of the Lark); the story is about a wood-carver and his family, and celebrates the history and strength of Denmark. Cather's reference to "Swedes liking to buy Danish bread and the Danes liking to buy Swedish bread" in O Pioneers! is an allusion to this story.
