Ole Sarvig (Danish pronunciation:[ˈoːlə ˈsɑːviˀ]) (1921 Copenhagen - 1981, Copenhagen) was a Danish author and poet, known for his participation in the literary journal heretica.[1] In 1967 he received the grand prize of the Danish Academy.[2] In 2004 his 1943 work Regnmaaleren was included in the Danish Culture Canon.[3] He was a friend and mentor to the poet Michael Strunge, whose poem "December" remembers Sarvig's death by suicide in December 1981. Like Sarvig, Strunge took his life by jumping from a building.[4]
