One of the most important and controversial writers of the twentieth century, Knut Hamsun’s history of literature with the publication, in 1890, of this powerful autobiographical novel recounting the misery, hunger and despair of a young writer of the difficulty of attaining self-discovery and his ultimate artistic expression.The book brilliantly probes the psychodynamics of alienation and obsession, the painting of an unforgettable portrait of a man moved by forces beyond his control and the edge of self-destruction.Hamsun influenced many greats of the 20th century, the writers who followed him, including Kafka, Joyce and Henry Miller.A compulsory reading in the world of course literature, the very influential, Romanesque monument will also find a large audience among book lovers who probe the “unexplored recesses of the human soul” (George Egerton)
