Bernhard Severin Ingemann

Ingemann, Bernhard Severin (bĕrnˈhärt sĕvˈərēn ĭngˈəmän) [key], 1789–1862, Danish poet, playwright, and novelist. As teacher and director of Soro Academy, Ingemann adopted the folk high school principles of N. F. S. Grundtvig. His novels, recalling Denmark's past greatness, were important in reviving national literary consciousness. The poems in Holger Danske (1837) became popular national songs, and the religious Morning and Evening Songs (1839) includes some of the finest lyric poetry in Danish.
