<p>Holger Henrik Herholdt Drachmann was a Danish poet and dramatist. He is an outstanding figure of the Modern Break-Through.</p> <p>The son of a physician, A. G. Drachmann, whose father belonged to the German-speaking congregation at St. Peter's Church, he was born in Copenhagen. Owing to the early death of his mother, the child was left much to his own devices and developed a fondness for semi-poetical performances, organising his companions in heroic games, in which he himself took such parts as those of Peder Tordenskjold and Niels Juel...</p> <p align="right">Further information at Drachmann's Wikipedia page.</p>
