e-books in Knut Hamsun category
by Knut Hamsun , 1893
Not only is this book Knut Hamsun's most significant work, but it gives the very best description available of life in Christiania toward the close of the century. A book of exquisite lyric beauty, of masterly psychology, and finished artistic form.
by Knut Hamsun - A.A. Knopf , 1922
The wanderer, Knut Pedersen, has fled the city, seeking peace and nurturing from nature. We see him wintering alone in a cabin near the mountains, once more seeking peace through solitude in nature and reflecting on what he has learned of life.
by Knut Hamsun
A true classic of modern literature, described as one of the most disturbing novels in existence. A story of an artist who wanders the streets, struggling on the edge of starvation. As hunger overtakes him, he slides into paranoia and despair.
by Knut Hamsun - A. A. Knopf , 1921
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.
