This work contains some of the results of the growing collaboration between scholars in Denmark, Britain and beyond, in the study of a man whose life and work are still very little known outside his own country, but which within that country continue after more than a century to have a remarkable influence on many aspects of life.;The book centres on the theme of the relations between Grundtvig, England and the English-speaking world. It begins with a brief presentation of the visits Grundtvig made to England in the summer of 1829, 1830, 1831 and 1843. It then looks at his lifelong interest in the literature and history of Anglo-Saxon England, the primary cause of his journeys. This topic proves to have wider ramifications than one might have expected. Grundtvig, both as poet and scholar, discovered a special attraction in the early Middle Ages, and he acquired a masterly knowledge of the sources.;But Grundtvig was not only a man of the past. His life was marked by the dominant currents of thought and feeling of his own time. Thus, there follow studies which look at him in the context of European Romanticism, and begin to explore possible parallels between his thought and that of Coleridge.;The study of his work which this book undertakes moves from the poetry of the Anglo-Saxons to the growth of new forms of education in contemporary Africa. Grundtvig was a man who more than most believed that past, present and future belong together, and that people should not be able to move freely into the future unless they have the lines of communication open to the past.;Deeply involved in the study of remote areas of the Judeo-Christian tradition and early-European past, he was nonetheless involved in the common life and struggle of the people to whom he belonged. For him the past is never something inert or inaccessible. In his hands it proves itself to be a living heritage, a source of prophetic insight and of incentive for action now and in the future. Overall in very good condition, can't see any signs of wear/damage.
