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.
