Arkiv for Dansk Litteratur

This Danish-language guide to Danish literary authors offers multi-page entries on individual authors usually consisting of a brief overview, a biography, surveys of the author's literary activity, literary context, and reception, a selection of brief texts, and a bibliography section listing writings by the author and writings about her/him. It is searchable by author's name, by period, and by the titles of individual works when links to these (usually only short pieces or brief extracts) are present. (Updates unknown)
