Jens Peter Jacobsen

Jens Peter Jacobsen (1847 - 1885) was a Danish novelist, poet and scientist, in Denmark often just written as J. P. Jacobsen (and pronounced I. P. Jacobsen). He began the naturalist movement in Danish literature and was a part of the Modern Breakthrough. Jacobsen's canon consists of two novels, seven short stories and one posthumous volume of poetry - small, but enough to place him as one of the most influential Danish writers.
