History and profileEdit
The focus of Vindrosen was on literary work. During the 1950s the magazine was under the influence of the writers contributed to Heretica. However, later it abandoned their views and cold war approach. Instead, Vindrosen began to focus on the third world countries. In addition, it became one of the supporters of modernism and radicalism in the 1960s and 1970s in Denmark. In the 1960s it also featured criticisms of literature and society. The magazine closely collaborated with the newspaper Information on these issues. Around the 1968 student protests the magazine functioned as a platform for the young leftist intellectuals.
In the 1950s Peter P. Rohde was the editor of the magazine. Then Klaus Rifbjerg and Villy Sorensen co-edited the magazine. The former served in the post between 1959 and 1963. In the rest of the 1960s Jess Ørnsbo served in the post. Niels Barfoed was also among the editors of Vindrosen.
