Poet, novelist, playwright. After working as a teacher at private and public schools he travelled round Denmark as a reciter, temperance agitator and lecturer. In 1913 he published his first collection of poems, and his first novel was published in 1918. Whereas his novels and plays are now mostly forgotten, his works of poetry are still widely read, particularly his children's songs, set to music by Carl Nielsen (q.v.). Every child, and adult, in Denmark knows these songs which are heard daily performed by soloists, choirs, and even rock-bands.
