    One thought on “Stolen Spring”

    1. Jeg er som en af de få ikke blevet tvunget til at læse den her i folkeskolen. Alligevel virker det som om jeg har læst den her historie tusind gange før. Det er virkelig en skolebog: God bog, vigtig bog, men også lidt for gammel og ikke specielt relevant. Og dog, det var da ting man kan tage med. Det er en interessant skildring af opdragelsen af nye patriarker, det er en interessant skildring af institutionaliseret vold, som man stadig kan få meget ud af, selvom børn ikke bliver direkte s [...]

    2. Scherfigs Det forsømte forår er selv i dag, med snart 75 års jubilæum, lige så aktuel som den var i 1940'erne, da den udkom for første gang. Selvom den såkaldte sorte skole for længst er afskaffet, er temaerne og budskaberne almengyldige, hvorfor det stadig i dag er muligt at identificere sig med eleverne og deres frygt for foråret, som betyder eksamenstid:Man læser og læser med rødrandede øjne" [] "Man spiser i tavshed, mens man tænker efter og repeterer. Og så læser man igen. M [...]

    3. This novel is a Danish classic from 1940, a satirical murder mystery about a teacher who gets murdered by one of his students. The teacher is such a sadistic man that he almost deserves his fate.Stolen Spring takes place around 1920, so it must be hard for younger Americans to relate to this satirical novel from an exotic Scandinavian country, right? No, obviously it's not. I've taught it twice at Portland State University and the students really related to it. One can only try to guess why. May [...]

    4. Scherfigs "Det forsømte Foraar" er en udødelig klassiker, som alle bør læse, hvis de da ikke allerede, helst af lyst, har gjort det – eller hvad værre, men nok mere sandsynligt, er: er blevet tvangsindlagt til det i skolen. Hvorfor forklarer litteraten Frederik Schyberg overbevisende i sin anmeldelse af bogen (23.10.40): "Det er lykkedes Scherfig ved Komik, Følelse, Erindringsstyrke, bitre Erfaringer og Had og Nag at sige Ting om Børns Trivsel og Vantrivsel i deres Skoleaar, der har Gyl [...]

    5. A semi-autobiographical, satirical take on life in the Danish school system in the 1930s and 40s, Hans Scherfig’s Stolen Spring comes to the dispiriting conclusion that the higher education system stunts the development and growth of both students and pupils, crushing their greatest desires and talents in an effort to mold them into productive, but unhappy and ill-equipped members of a hierarchy-obsessed society. Or, as Sherfig was quoted as saying, “…The school’s task is to foster the p [...]

    6. Jeg havde høje forventninger til ”Det Forsømte Forår” da jeg bladrede om på første side. Bogens beskrivelser på bagsiden gav mig en forventning om en roman, fyldt med mystik og spændingen ved uvisheden om ikke at kende morderen blandt de 19 herrer. Undervejs bliver man så opslugt af beskrivelserne af uhyrlighederne i skolen, at man som læser glemmer at skulle finde en morder. Lige pludselig får man svaret på en gåde, som man nærmest har glemt alt om. Dette gør at plottet falder [...]

    7. Den er så dejlig Scherfigsk. Jeg hører hans stemme, mens jeg læser. Sætningerne med opremsninger og som starter med og. De skal læses med betoning og langsomt. Gentagelserne er med til at sætte tempoet ned. Hold nu op. Det er 40 år siden jeg læste den sidst, i mellemtiden har jeg set filmen, og nu altså læst den igen. Den er stadig god. Gad vide om den stadig læses i skolen?

    8. Well, I was forced to read this for university so I was not really expecting to enjoy it. I am also not a big reader of Danish authors so I was expecting this to be a bad experience. I was indeed wrong about that. This might not be a novel I will advocate to every person who asks me what to read but I will say the book started out interesting and it was not a boring novel to read as such at least for the first half of the book.This is, though, still not my taste, and Hans Scherfig has not been a [...]

    9. "Det Forsømte Forår" from 1940 is regarded as a classic within Danish literature. This despite its short length and simple language.The novel seems to be somewhat of a genre hybrid in the beginning, as we are introduced to the plot as a crime novel, where the infamous Lektor Blomme gets killed. Several years later, we are at a dinner table with a lot of men, with one of them being the murderer. However, the novel takes a turn in terms of focus, and although it keeps its audience reminded of a [...]

    10. installation two of Modern European Comedy and Satire cours.Stolen Spring is a story written in 1940 that follows the often tedious life of private-school danish boys in 1920 Copenhagen. Apparently since its release, this novel has been required reading for most schools in Denmark.The novel is marked with a very simple writing style. Scherfig’s language in writing about sometimes horrid instances is strangely comical and proves to be a significant strength in the execution of the story. Overal [...]

    11. I read this Danish novel when I was a grad student in Scandinavian Studies, but so many years have passed that I really didn't remember it. Scherfig traces the lives of a group of students at a harsh Danish private school in the 1920s, starting with a flashback at a class reunion 25 years after graduation. One of the students, although they don't know which one, was driven to desperation by a professor's cruelty and poisoned him. The situation in the school seems so grim that it is a wonder that [...]

    12. Jeg er nok en af de få danske teenagers, som har læst denne bog af egen fri vilje udenfor skolen. Det fortryder jeg ikke. Efter alle referencerne fra Mathiesen i latintimerne, blev jeg nu nødt til at læse denne forrygende bog, skrevet af Hans Scherfig. Den gav et godt indblik i elevlivet i den såkaldte sorte skole, og ikke mindst i en flok unge hårdt pressede drenges sind. Jeg var vild med bogens opbygning, og indledning, som mest af alt mindede om en krimi, hvilket jeg dog ikke syntes den [...]

    13. I missed a little excitement and tension both in the middle part and in the ending. I honestly thought it was one of those books that would have a surprising non expected ending, but it turned out it was not. A little disappointing, though the writing and wording was absolutely amazing all the way through. A truly classic, that every Danish student go through reading in school - most hate, few adore. I see the meaning and the beauty in this book.

    14. An important piece of literature that any person related to Denmark should've read. You can't tell from the language that it's written in 1940, however that being said, it's not a book that I will think about very much, I guess. Its easy language is both a strength and a weakness - a strength, because most people will be able to readand understand it, a weakness because it doesn't leave an impression on the reader.

    15. I finally finished this fucking book. I read it for school and didn't have much interest, although I can tell that if I'd been less against reading it and cared more about the characters I would have given it a higher rating. It was fine. I enjoyed some parts of it, other parts I found very boring.

    16. Det meste kan læses som en måske nøgtern skildring af skoletilværelsen i 1920erne - 1930erne, smukt rammet ind af et 25 års studenterjubilæum.Med den foragt for selvbestaltede autoriteter, som Scherfig udviser i bogen, er det ganske paradoksalt at han hele sit voksne liv var overbevist stalinist.

    17. I loved it to bits. It was a mandatory read in school and I'd been looking forward to it since my teacher had talked about it for years. 4 stars because Scherfig keeps writing 'and then' in the beginning of half of his sentenced and it irritates me.

    18. I didn't really like this book, but we were forced to read it in school.I'm sure there's some kind of divine intervention in the book - a hidden message, which speaks every teenagers case, but i can't really see the whole connection.

    19. I would have liked this book if it hadn't been for one thing, I couldn't tell the characters a part. The names became names in a sea of names and I had to continuely go back and forth to remind myself on what character was which. :/

    20. Det Forsømte Forår har stadig sin berettigelse, særligt når snakken går på karakterræs og tanker om det dannede individ.

    21. Not a mystery novel (I originally thought it was a "whodunnit". But it was an interesting criticism of Danish school system in 1905. I enjoyed the wit in cynicism.
