About the Author Jørgen-Frantz Jacobsen (1900-1938) spent his early childhood in his native Faroe Islands, then proceeding to high school and university in Denmark. He worked as a journalist for the newspaper Politiken, but in 1922 fell prey to the tuberculosis that led to his early death. He worked to the very end, and while Barbara was his only novel, it was preceded by a work entitled The Faroes, Nature and People, which has the dual quality of being informative and a work of considerable beauty. Although written in Danish, his work is intensely Faroese.

W. Glyn Jones read Modern Languages at Pembroke College Cambridge, with Danish as his principal language, before doing his doctoral thesis at Cambridge. He taught at various universities in England and Scandinavia before becoming Professor of Scandinavian Studies at Newcastle and then at the University of East Anglia. W Glyn Jones' many translations from Danish for Dedalus include five novels by William Heinesen, Ida Brandt by Herman Bang and My Fairy-Tale Life by Hans Christian Andersen.
