Knut Hamsun’s Pan

Eschewing realism for penetrating psychological insights, Hamsun’s subjective style proved to be extremely influential for a variety of writers ranging from Thomas Mann to Ernest Hemingway and even to Isaac Bashevis Singer.

Remembering Knut Hamsun:
August 4, 1859–February 19, 1952

Part 2 of 2

Translated by Greg Johnson

The Paganism of Hamsun and Lawrence

If Hamsun and Lawrence carry out their desire to return to a natural ontology by rejecting rationalist intellectualism, this also implies an in-depth contestation of the Christian message. Read more …

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

1,000 words

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there have been quite a few movie and television adaptations, while—unlike so many others—his  books are “neither out-of-date nor obsolete” (Hubert Nyssen), he is still ignored by the French public.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

Knut Hamsun’s Growth of the Soil

front_growth_1935367 words

In 1916 Hamsun began work on what became his greatest and most idealistic novel, Growth of the Soil, which won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1921. It painted Hamsun’s ideal of a solid, farm-based culture, where human values, instead of being fixed upon transitory artificialities which modern society had deemed fashionable, would be based upon the fixed wheel of the seasons in the safekeeping of an inviolable eternity where man and Nature existed in harmony: Read more …
