“I had a farm in Africa at the foot of Mount Ngong”

Thus reads one of the most famous introductions in Danish literature. The African Farm is the story of the years Karen Blixen spent in Kenya between 1914 and 1931. A wild prose text which presents itself as a mixture of travelogue, autobiography and culturally critical essays.

I had a Farm in Africa focuses on Blixen's world-famous work in the light of recent years' discussions about globalisation, post-colonialism and cultural understanding - as well as providing perspectives on what it means to tell about one's own life.
