"In his charming volume, "Two Visits to Denmark," undertaken in 1872 and 1874, Edmund Gosse furnishes a most entertaining account of his first meeting with Georg Brandes and how this friendship not only became a bridge for the introduction of Danish literature in England, but as throwing new light on the Brandes home circle at that early time."--Georg Brandes in Life and Letters[1] (1922) by Julius Moritzen
