U.S.A.
His unorthodox probings have intrigued some of the outstanding minds of our time. ESQUIRE


Our Danish Leonardo.  HOUSE BEAUTIFUL

CANADA
All grooks are good grooks ... the one that a lot of people sent to the U.S. president: The Noble art of Losing Face…  WEEKEND MAGAZINE


ENGLAND
His work has the most original flavour in Danish literature since Hans Christian Andersen.  SIGNE TOKSVIG


SWEDEN
Wisdom of living as condensed as in the old Nordic Havamal. Matchless in our day.  Professor SVEN B. F. J ANSSON
expert on the Eddaic poems

The most quoted Scandinavian.  FRITIOF NILSSON PIRATEN

 

NORWAY
Apart from the Bible, I know of no book that Iwould so gladly recommend. 
The Nobel prize should be proud to be given to Piet Hein.  ARVID DAHLE

All emotions laid bare.  LARS HAMBERG

 

DENMARK
Piet Hein’s grooks – the proverbs of our time. 
...so well known and loved that his words no longer belong to himself, but fly away to live forever among the people just as the old proverbs.  MARIE LOUISE PALUDAN


He has achieved what can befall a poet in his lifetime in respect of poplarity... by being himself to an exceptional extent. Yes... he has carried his egocentricity so far that it has become universally human.  HARALD ENGBERG


...spontaneous, highly compressed expression which must fascinate people of any intelligence quotient.  JØRGEN SANDVAD


...the only world name (Victor Borge) which is presumably as ind isputable today as Piet Hein.  BT. Biggest Danish newspaper

 

SWEDEN
There is something of old Chinese wisdom about his grooks. At the same time he is truly Danish. And in nearly every line he puts new life into the Danish language. Was there a live world language then he would be claimed immediately by all mankind.  GUSTAV NÄSSTROM

 

NORWAY
Critics find Piet Hein incomparable. On the contrary, he is comparable even with Goethe... Goethe’s masterly »knittelverse« or »Ober allen Gipfeln«, don’t you think?  HERMAN WILDENVEY

 

ENGLAND
His grooks... short aphoristic poems... related to the Old Nordic Havamal
(poems AD 850-1050). bestseller.

 

Grooks are short aphoristic statements... that appear self-evident as soon as they have been formulated. 

His grooks often open a small window on a large world.

You are sure to hear them quoted at you at any rate, and you might as well have a few bandy ones from the book ready to quote right back.  NEW YORK TIMES

 

The impact of Piet Hein... on the English speaking world may be considerable ... he comes to its attention as a full-blown developed genius.  Often proposed for the Nobel Prize.  LIFE

 

Piet Hein... one of the’ most remarkable men in Denmark.  SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN

 

... conciliation would be far easier if adversaries would only heed the aphoristic advice of the Danish Scientist-Poet Piet Hein: The noble Art of Losing Face … TIME

 

Piet Hein is a master of the epigram. He must be read on at least two levels. I admire his work both on the more superficial and on the deeper level. What a wealth of significant thought it contains. His mastery of English is remarkable.  NORBERT WIENER
