Part 2 of 2

Translated by Greg Johnson

The Paganism of Hamsun and Lawrence

Knut Hamsun

1,012 words

English version here

Knut Hamsun é um mistério. Enquanto quase todos os seus trabalhos foram traduzidos para o Francês; enquanto houve algumas adaptações para o cinema e televisão; enquanto – diferentemente de tantos outros –, seus livros não são “nem antiquados, nem obsoletos” (Hubert Nyssen), ele ainda é ignorado pelo público francês.

Knut Hamsun, circa 1890

376 words

Knut Hamsun was born Knut Pederson in Lom Norway on August 4, 1859. He died in Grimstad, Norway, on February 19, 1952. The author of more than 20 novels, plus poems, short stories, plays, and essays, Hamsun was one of the 20th century’s most influential writers. His rejection of both Romanticism and naturalism, his emphasis on outsiders and rebels, and his exploration of inner and sometimes extreme states of consciousness, made him a pioneer of literary modernism. He received the Nobel Prize for literature in 1920. Read more …

Knut Hamsun

Translated by Greg Johnson

Portuguese translation here

Knut Hamsun is a mystery. While almost all his works have been translated into French, while there have been quite a few movie and television adaptations, while—unlike so many others—his  books are “neither out-of-date nor obsolete” (Hubert Nyssen), he is still ignored by the French public.

Knut Hamsun, 1859–1952

6,468 words

Editor’s Note:

This much-expanded version of a previously-published essay on Knut Hamsun is chapter 6 of Kerry Bolton’s Artists of the Right: Resisting Decadence, forthcoming from Counter-Currents.

Knut Hamsun, 1859–1952, has had a decisive impact on the course of twentieth century literature, both in Europe and America, yet was for decades little discussed let alone honored even in his native Norway. Read more …

Knut Hamsun & the Cause of Europe

Marianne Hamsun, "Portrait of Knut Hamsun," date unknown

2,641 words

After fifty years of being confined to the Orwellian memory hole created by the Jews as part of their European “denazification” process, the work of the Norwegian author Knut Hamsun — who died in 1952 — is reemerging to take its place among the greatest European literature of the twentieth century. All of his major novels have undergone English-language reprints during the last two years, and even in his native Norway, where his post-1945 ostracism has been most severe, he is finally receiving a long-overdue recognition.
