About the Author:
William Heinesen (1900-1991) was born in Torshavn in the Faroe Islands, the son of a Danish mother and Faroese father, and was equally at home in both languages. Although he spent most of his life in the Faroe Islands he chose to write in Danish as he felt it offered him greater inventive freedom. Although internationally known as a poet and a novelist he made his living as an artist. His paintings range from large-scale murals in public buildings, through oil to pen sketches, caricatures and collages. He published The Black Cauldron in 1949, Dedalus translation 1992. The cover picture of the Dedalus edition is a painting by William Heinesen.The Lost Musicians followed in 1950 (Dedalus translation in 2007). Heinesen's first novel, Windswept Dawn (1934)was published by Dedalus in 2009.
