One of the most important and controversial writers of the 20th century, Knut Hamsun made literary history with the publication in 1890 of this powerful, autobiographical novel recounting the abject poverty, hunger and despair of a young writer struggling to achieve self-discovery and its ultimate artistic expression. The book brilliantly probes the psychodynamics of alienation and obsession, painting an unforgettable portrait of a man driven by forces beyond his control to the edge of self-destruction. Hamsun influenced many of the major 20th-century writers who followed him, including Kafka, Joyce and Henry Miller. Required reading in world literature courses, the highly influential, landmark novel will also find a wide audience among lovers of books that probe the "unexplored crannies in the human soul" (George Egerton).

About the Author:

Knut Hamsun, born in Norway in 1859, was a novelist, poet, and dramatist who received the Nobel Prize in 1920. Many believe the modern novel was born with the 1890 publication of Hamsun's masterwork HUNGER. Some of the world's most celebrated authors, including Ernest Hemingway and Franz Kafka, have cited Hamsun as a major influence. He passed away in 1952 at age 92.
