About the Author
Knut Hamsun, 1859-1952
Knut Hamsun was a leading Norwegian author, born in Lom under the name of Knut Pedersen.
He first received acclaim for his 1890 novel Sult, translated as Hunger. The work, which is semi-autobiographical, described a young writer's descent into near madness as a result of hunger and poverty. In many ways, the novel presages the writings of Franz Kafka and other twentieth-century novelists, who explored the madness of the contemporary human condition.
Other important works by Hamsun include Pan  and The Growth of the Soil , for which he received the Nobel Prize in literature in 1920.
