ISAK DINESEN, KAREN BLIXEN

(1885-1962). [Pseudonym of Karen Blixen-Finecke]. Danish writer, who incorporated supernatural elements and erotic undertones with an aristocratic view of life. Best known for her novel "Out of Africa."

Animal rights is the issue Dinesen discusses in her Typed Letter Signed, in Danish, 2 separate pages folio, Rungstedlund, September 24, 1953.

In the early to mid 1950's, the "Out of Africa" author was interested in the treatment of laboratory animals in Denmark. Discussing the politics of the animal rights movement, she writes, "All test animals of higher species have my deepest compassion and I do not differ between dogs and cats...I lost confidence in the discussion because it has become virtually impossible to communicate with the scientist. I would not accept that only dogs would be accepted by vivisection...I myself am of the opinion that the community of animal friends is more important than these differences...." Signed, "Karen Blixen Finecke."
