Book cover: The Growth of the SoilThe Growth of the Soil
by - A. A. Knopf ,
When Hamsun won the Nobel Prize in Literature, in 1920, it was mostly because of this 1917 novel, an epic vision of peasant life in Norway's backcountry. The saga of Isak and Inger and their hard times is by turns affecting and ponderous.
