Masterpiece. Be sure to read this after you read PAN. Also best to plow through HUNGER, DREAMERS and UNDER THE AUTUMN STAR before hitting ROSA, if at all possible. Simply an exquisite piece of literature.

Awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1920 "for his monumental work, Growth of the Soil". He insisted that the intricacies of the human mind ought to be the main object of modern literature, to describe the "whisper of the blood, and the pleading of the bone marrow". Hamsun pursued his literary program, debuting in 1890 with the psychological novel Hunger.

“Og jeg var så kjær i ham, å hele verden blev borte når han kom. Jeg husker en mand som kunde komme gående! Han hadde fuldskjæg, han var som et dyr, han stanset iblandt og holdt den ene fot oppe og lyttet, så gik han videre. Han brukte også skindklær.” 0 likes
“Vi blev vel som to gale tilslut, så deilig var han. Jeg stod og bakte småkaker en dag, så kom han utenfor vinduet og så ind. Jeg hadde rørt ved den bløte deig så længe og rullet den lang og skåret den i stykker med kniv; nu sa jeg til ham og viste ham kniven: Var det ikke bedst om vi begge døde? Jo, svarte han, kom med mig til hytten så skal vi gjøre det!” 0 likes
