Via Facebook I received an anguished call for help from my colleague Gissur Erlingsson who seems to have a troubled relationship with railways in general and the Gnesta – Norrköping line in particular.
Anyway, two of the greatest Danish poets have been stuck at railway stations at various times with the foreseeable consequences.
So, for Scandinavian-readers: Here are two of the high points in early 20th Century Danish poetry:
Sophus Claussen “Rejseminder” (Skanderborg Station)
Johannes V. Jensen “Paa Memphis Station”
I suspect that there are no sphinxes in Katrineholm either.
