    About "Knut Hamsun Paula Wiking"

        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.

    1. "But one thing I'll never be done with: withdrawing to sit in the solitude in my room, surrounded by a deep darkness. In spite of all, that's the last joy. (131)The Last Joy, also translated as Look Back on Happiness, is the last of what Hamsun's so-called Wanderer Trilogy. It is preceded by Under the Autumn Star (1906) and A Wanderer Plays on Muted Strings (1909), both of which are wonderful. This is the weakest of the three; it is not as sustained as the others, and it reveals Hamsun at his mo [...]


    2. De los tres de La Trilogía del Vagabundo, La Última Alegría es el más bello de todos en su forma. En este caso, Hamsun se vale de la experiencia que ya Knut Pedersen ostenta, hasta el punto en que las imágenes que evoca suelen ser preciosas. En ese sentido, el libro se despliega como un paisaje de afectos en el que el lector no puede más que encontrarse inmerso todo el tiempo. Ahora bien, aquí también surge lo peor de Hamsun: la visión provinciana y xenófoba, que desprecia la diferenci [...]


    3. I don't think I've ever read a better first chapter. It had me hooked immediately and then throughout the entire book. I love the way Hamsun writes and how he incorporates certain sentences that contain so much meaning. Love it, love it, love it.


    4. Every Hamsun book is great, and Look Back in Happiness is no exception. Here we have an older Hamsun persona still seasonally wandering the Norwegian countryside in search of work, while commenting on the modernization. As always, Hamsun offers the reader sharp insights into the motives of people through his wide range of characters that all happen to stay at a resort lodge, where Hamsun's persona is employed.


    5. This his last (or one of the last books) before he got involved into politics and tragically supported Nazi occupation of Norway, met Hitler (who read his books as a young men, well Gebbels read for sure). Of course, all of his books are gems. One of my favorite authors. I read this book in both Russian and English translation.


    6. The title is strange, the book is different, the author is a mystery, but I couldn't help but loving my experience reading it. It's short, 180 pages my Kindle says.I met Knut Hamsun reading a book reviews blog that reviewed his more well known title, Hunger. Then I found out he's also a Noble prize for literature, 1920, for his title Growth of the Soil. And I know those who have no interest on Nobel prize authors.Further down, I read he was a Nazi. Read this article though, and you'll see why th [...]


    7. In his last book of the Wanderer Trilogy, Hamsun's narrator is the same forward-looking individual as he was before in the trilogy. But he is also older. The narrator is in his seventies. At a certain age, what is there to look forward to but death? So the narrator lives vicariously through younger people that he comes in contact with. Gone are his own love interests; in come the love interests of others. Which is good, because now - in retrospect - the narrator's tendency to see everything thro [...]


    8. "For my own bed, I cut fresh pine twigs, as is fitting. I have an axe and a saw and the necessary crockery. And I have a sleeping bag of sheepskin with the wool inside. I keep a fire burning in the fireplace all night, and my shirt, which hangs by it, smells of fresh resin in the morning. When I want coffee, I go out, fill the kettle with clean snow, and hang it over the fire till the snow turns to water.//While the pot is boiling I lie down and gaze at the fire till I fall asleep. I take my mid [...]


    9. This was a somewhat different read of Hamsun than I'd grown accustom to with his past work. The style and flow however, was similar and I really enjoyed this book. As usual, there's not anyone who gets lost in the story along the way and it's a neat insight into the community of a small rural town.


    10. I have read this, remember that opening page. Will have to check to see what other title this comes under when back on the Big Girl computer.**This book is also known as The Last Joy**



    11. This is the third volume of "Wanderers." I look forward to reading it. The first two books are wonderful—the narrator's outlook is strange and surprising. He is not exactly likable but extremely engaging, with odd relationships over space and time. Years go by, nothing really happens, yet you keep wondering what's next, what's the point, where is he going.


    12. Hamsun is one of my top five writers. If you ask me why I couldn't really explain except to say that his narratives are appealing. However, this book seemed a bit scattered with no clear point to the story. His writing took me through to the end, but this was not his best.
