Karin Petherick

Svenska Dagbladet has published an obituary (pdf) of Karin Petherick, the distinguished British Scandinavianist who died recently at the age of 80. Sarah Death has published an English-language appreciation of Dr. Petherick's life and work here. I remember Karin Petherick from the mid-1980s, when she showed kind and supportive interest in my translations of Edith Södergran's Complete Poems.
