Chapter Summary

One of the most interesting compilers of ballad-books in Danish Renaissance was the noblewoman Anne Krabbe. During the Danish Renaissance a number of noblewomen collected ballads and their ballad-books are particularly intriguing, as they reveal the context within which ballads were committed to paper. While Svend Grundtvig divides ballads and their variants on the basis of a particular typology, in the Renaissance ballad-books the present-day reader or researcher sees the ballad as part of a fi ne artefact: the ballad-book itself. Anne Krabbe and the other aristocratic male and female compilers of ballad-books are not taken into acount in traditional, national literary histories. A large proportion of the eighty-eight ballads in Anne Krabbe's book deal with female culture and sexuality. Anne Krabbe's ballads have a Christian set of values as their framework and the Lutheran persuasion is part of her construction of place.

Keywords: Anne Krabbe's ballad works; Danish Renaissance; female culture
