Laterna Magica book

Here's the back story: Born in 1900, William Heinesen was an author, poet, and painter from the Faroe Islands, which was for much of his life under Danish rule (The Faroes are now mostly autonomous, although Denmark still handles their defense, legal system, and 'foreign affairs. Anyway, Laterna Magica is not supposedly Heinesen's best (or best known) work, but I found both the premise and execution of this collection rather fascinating.

In Laterna Magica, the narrator bridges the gap between local literature and world literature in his allusions to broadly canonical works. One of the stories, "De stumme gagster", is dedicated to two Faroese poets, the brothers . Moreover, world literature is an explicit model for Laterna Magica in that the stories are inspired by A Thousand and One Nights and Boccaccio's Decameron, in both of which the narrator also postpones death by telling stories. These works serve as unforgettable examples of a certain tragic humor (64).
