This collection of essays by scholars from several countries examines the letters of central figures of the Modern Breakthrough, including Georg Brandes, Drachmann, Hamsun, Ibsen, Lybeck, Pontoppidan, Amalie Skram and Strindberg. There are also essays on the correspondence of Delius with his many Nordic contacts and an introduction on the letter as a genre, and the 19th-century postal network that made such correspondence feasible.
