Karen von Blixen, aka Isak Dinesen

I could easily replace the word "Africa" with "New England". But it would be nice to visit Africa someday too.

Karen Blixen with her brother Thomas Dinesen, see comment below for more.. (not as we romantics would like to think, 'Great White Hunter' Denys Finch Hatton (redford played him in the movie of Out of Africa, Meryl Streep was Karen)

Karen: When you go away... you don't always go on safari, do you? Just want to be away. Denys: It's not meant to hurt you. Karen: It does. Denys: I'm with you because I choose to be with you. I don't want to live someone else's idea of how to live. Don't ask me to do that. I don't want to find out one day that I'm at the end of someone else's life. Karen: I have learned something that you haven't: there are some things worth having, but they come at a price. And I want to be one of them.

The Honorable Denys George Finch Hatton (24 April 1887 – 14 May 1931) was an aristocratic big-game hunter and the lover of Baroness Karen Blixen (also known by her pen name as Isak Dinesen), a Danish noblewoman who wrote about him in her autobiographical book Out of Africa, first published in 1937. In the book, his name is hyphenated: "Finch-Hatton".
