Knut Hamsun: Dreamer Dissenter


      Knut Hamsun: Dreamer  Dissenter
Norwegian writer Knut Hamsun 1859 1952 , winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1920, was a man both brilliant and controversial Lauded for his literary achievements by Hemingway, Gide, Hesse, and others, he also provoked outrage for his open collaboration with the Fascists during the German occupation of Norway and for his insistent refusal to renounce his Nazi sympathies This gripping biography of Hamsun, now available for the first time in English, offers a nuanced account of this morally ambiguous man Drawing on Hamsun s extraordinary private archives and on his psychoanalyst s notes, Ingar Sletten Kolloen delves deeply into Hamsun s personal life and character In vivid and telling detail, he describes Hamsun s early years in a peasant farming family, his tempestuous and jealousy racked second marriage, his erratic relationship with his children, and his infamous love affair with Nazi Germany, the roots of which Kolloen traces to Hamsun s earliest days Much like the characters he created in novels such as Hunger, Growth of the Soil, Mysteries , and Pan , Hamsun was irrational, eccentric, strange, and compelling a man uncomfortable in his own time.

    Well, after a lifetime of loving Hamsun s books, I bit the bullet and read a biography of the author, knowing that his political views would be abhorrent This brilliant, incredibly well balanced book, shows Hamsun to be an all round unpleasant man at the same time as being a literary genius He was very self centred, rude, arrogant, a womaniser, a pretty poor father, tight fisted, and, of course an out and out Facist and ...

    An engrossing read of the troubled and troubling life of Norway s greatest writer From pioneer existentialist in novels such as Hunger, Mysteries and Pan through to the sweet lyricism of Victoria I loved Hamsun s writing but knew very little of the man and his later books This is a thoroughly comprehensive biography, disconcertingly so because Hamsun, the man, was quite frankly a difficult to like, overbearing in the worst patrician sense but with a chip on his shoulder from his humble An engrossing read of the troubled and troubling life of Norway s greatest writer From pioneer existentialist in novels such as Hunger, Mysteries and Pan through to the sweet lyricism of Victoria I loved Hamsun s writing but knew very little of the man and his later books This is a thoroughly comprehensive biography, disconcertingly so because Hamsun, the man, was quite frankly a difficult to like, overbearing in the worst patrician sense but with a chip on his shoulder from his humb...

    One has to feel a bit of sympathy for Ingar Kolloen to quote a review of this book elsewhere, Knut Hamsun was a disgusting human being.
