Frederik Paludan-Müller

Paludan-Müller, Frederik (frĭˈħərĭk päˈlōħän-müˈlər) [key], 1809–76, Danish poet. In Denmark he is widely regarded as a peer of Kierkegaard and Hans Christian Andersen. Among his earlier works are The Dancer (1833) and Cupid and Psyche (1834). His masterpiece, the partly autobiographical poem Adam Homo (3 parts, 1841–49, tr. 1981), deals with the duality of human personality, the emptiness of social ambition, and the saving force of selfless love.
