The year 1837 marked a new departure for Marmier to the Scandinavian countries: an extended journey over the next eighteen months took him to Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Lapland. This visit brought him into contact with a number of important figures from all spheres of society, notably the literary and the political, but also the scientific, the artistic, and the world of learning. It resulted in an outstanding series of publications, marking Marmier as the most influential Franco-Scandinavian intermediary of the era. In addition to the above, this chapter describes the contents of the Histoire de la littérature scandinave, dealing much with Danish literature.
