Peter Seeberg (1925 – 1999) was a Danish modernist novelist and playwright, inspired by the French existentialists. He made his literary debut in 1956 with the novel Bipersonerne.

Peter Seeberg graduated from Haderlev Cathedral school in 1943 and pursued an education as an arkeologist. Together with his authorship was he a museum custodian in Viborg. After his graduation from Haderlev, Seeberg traveled to Berlin and produced nazistic propaganda for the UFA company. He however cannot be called a racist. Seeberg graduated with a Magister Artium (The Artists Teacher) in 1951 from University of Copenhagen, with a concentration on Friedrich Nietzsche. Seeberg's own life mirrored Nietzsche's life; they both had distant mothers and both their fathers died early. Seeberg's own father was also an author and was a missionary priest. Seeberg's entire family was Christian and according to Seeberg's own journal, was centered on a jealous and vengeful God.

He was awarded the Nordic Council's Literature Prize in 1983 for the short story collection Om fjorten dage ("In Fourteen Days").[1]
