Tom Kristensen was the most influential exponent of Expressionism in 1920s Denmark. During this period he wrote both poetry and novels that gave voice to this new literary current. After 1930 Kristensen concentrated almost exclusively on writing commemorative and occasional poems. In addition to these works, Kristensen was a productive and influential literary critic and essayist. Kristensen was deeply influenced by figures such as Johannes V. Jensen, D.H. Lawrence, and James Joyce.
