ever has the Nobel Prize been awarded to one worthier of it," pronounced Thomas Mann of the Norwegian novelist Knut Hamsun. Andre Gide compared him to Dostoevsky but thought Hamsun was "perhaps even more subtle" than the Russian master. Maxim Gorky, writing privately in 1927, confessed to Hamsun: "I tell you this quite sincerely, at this moment you are the greatest artist in Europe; there is no one who can compare with you."
Today Hamsun is little known or read in the English world and remains a deeply problematic presence in his homeland. Streets, parks, and monuments commemorate the names of Henrik Ibsen and Bjornstjerne Bjornson, but not of Hamsun. His name draws an ambiguous stare, a reaction that readers of his novels might be forgiven for thinking a more apt memorial than a conventional work of bronze or stone. What has happened? Knut Hamsun's rise to international renown in the first decades of the twentieth century was eclipsed by his fatal alliance with the Nazi cause in the final years of his long life, an act of misplaced nationalism rather than ideological affinity.
Unrepentant until the endhe died at age ninety-two in 1952Hamsun affected indifference, and throughout his later life was ambivalent about his celebrity. One even suspects that the scandalous acts of his late yearsparticularly the grotesque gesture of presenting his Nobel Prize medal to Joseph Goebbelswere calculated to shock, to undermine any facile conclusions of literary historians.

§ Knut Hamsun, l'ultimo pagano.
Il seguente articolo di Marino Freschi, apparso il 18 febbraio 2002 sul quotidiano "Il Giornale", vuole ricordare i 50 anni dalla morte di Hamsun. Knut Hamsun nacque a Lom [Gudbrandsdal] nel 1859 e morì a Noerholm nel 1952. Di origini contadine, fece diversi mestieri sia in Norvegia che negli Stati Uniti, dove trascorse alcuni anni. Dopo vari tentativi giunse al successo letterario con il racconto autobiografico Fame (1890). In esso Hamsun dichiarava la sua poetica, rifiutando la rappresentazione realistica e positivistica della società e esaltando la vita inconscia dell'anima, il sogno, il mistero. Il romanzo segnò una rivoluzione nella produzione letteraria norvegese. Fu seguito da Misteri (1892) il cui protagonista è permeato di spirito nietzscheiano. Pan (1894) è una esaltazione romantica del ritorno alla natura misteriosa e arcana del Nord. Nel 1904 Hamsun pubblicò una raccolta di poesie, Il coro selvaggio ispirate alla natura e all'amore, e il romanzo

72. Knut Hamsun - Biography
knut hamsun (18591952) was born in Lom, Norway, and grew hamsun's admiration forGermany, which was of long standing From nobel Lectures, Literature 1901-1967.
Knut Hamsun (1859-1952) was born in Lom, Norway, and grew up in poverty on the Lofoten Islands. At the age of seventeen he became an apprentice to a ropemaker, and at about the same time he began to write. He spent some years in America, travelling and working at odd jobs, and published his impressions, chiefly unfavourable, under the title Fra det moderne Amerikas Aandsliv (1889) [The Intellectual Life of Modern America]. The novel Sult (1890) [Hunger] and even more so Pan (1894) established him as one of the foremost Norwegian writers.
Hamsun's work is determined by a deep aversion to civilization and the belief that man's only fulfilment lies with the soil. This primitivism (and its concomitant distrust of all things modern) found its fullest expression in Hamsun's masterpiece Growth of the Soil ]. His early works usually centre on an outcast, a vagabond figure, aggressively opposed to civilization. In his middle period, Hamsun's aggressiveness gives way to melancholy resignation about the loss of youth. The decay of age is the theme of such plays as Livets Spil (1896) [Game of Life] and (1898) [ Sunset], as well as of the novels

A Knut Hamsun Resource Page
He is one of the great writers of the twentieth century
, though his best works were written before 1900. He is one of the most influential European novelists of the last hundred years, yet he is not well known in the United States. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, the most important Norwegian author since Ibsen, he is often ignored in his own country. He is Knut Hamsun novelist of genius, radical individualist, supporter of Hitler, Quisling, and the Nazi occupation of Norway during World War II. Hamsun, in Mysteries, Pan, and Hunger, wrote three of the greatest novels of the late nineteenth century, novels which created a new literary style and which delineated a new literary hero: the alienated loner. In Growth of the Soil (1917), he produced an epic agrarian novel that describes, with Biblical power, the attraction and honesty of working with the land. His work was widely admired in the first half of the twentieth century, with writers as diverse as Thomas Mann, Hermann Hesse, and Henry Miller citing Hamsun's work as being of special importance and influence. Isaac Bashevis Singer, in his essay "Knut Hamsun, Artist of Skepticism" goes so far as to claim that "the whole modern school of fiction in the twentieth century stems from Hamsun." Hamsun's reputation waned rapidly following World War II. Charged with treason for his support of the Norwegian Nazi Party (Nasjonal Samling), his works went out of favor in Norway and elsewhere. As with other writers who supported the Axis powers Ezra Pound, for example Hamsun's work has had a difficult time regaining the prominence it enjoyed before the war.

Author Info: Knut Hamsun
Knut Hamsun's semi autobiographical account of his early years as an aspiring writer is the sine qua non of starving artist literature. It combines something of the manic intensity of Dostoevskey's portrayal of Raskalnikov, with the first person narrative and near hallucinatory vision of Charles Bukowskithe visions brought on by starvation rather than alcohol in this caseand is told in the spare, punchy prose that the author learned while working in America. The message of the book seems to be that the experience of poverty and hunger are a necessary fuel to stoke the author's artistic fires. It remains for the reader to determine whether Hamsun has been blessed with a universal revelation, or merely a personal insight. The idea of suffering for art and of inspiration coming from hallucination have certainly been influentialwe think of Faulkner, Hemingway, Henry Miller, William S. Burroughs, Mailer, etc., as writers who sought the profound in a bottle, a needle or a bimbo. However, other than Bukowski and a little bit of Hunter Thompson, it is hard to think of many authors whose dissipation has helped produce much that's worth reading. Significantly, the good stuff that even they produced details their adventures while under the influence, not any revelations about the broader world that resulted from said mind altering. But the danger here is that such authors tend to risk self-indulgenceremarkably few writers can make their own debauchery into interesting proseand often sacrifice coherence.

Son père est tailleur et installé dans le Nordland, patrie septentrionale de la Norvège, dont les immenses espaces libres imprimeront définitivement la mémoire du jeune Knut. Dès ses 20 ans, il mène une vie d'errance qui le conduira notamment aux Etats-Unis. Dès 1890, il écrit et publie Sous l'étoile d'automne, première partie d'une triologie romanesque où s'affirme l'importance de la figure du vagabond. Puis, Un vagabond joue en sourdine (1909), La dernière joie (1912) et Benoni et Rosa (1908) où Hamsun se montre, pour la première fois dans son œuvre, très critique vis-à-vis de l'industrialisation et de l'américanisation de la vie. En 1913, il affirme sa critique sociale avec La ville de Segelfoss et Les fruits de la terre où il loue la vie simple et heureuse. Ce dernier ouvrage lui vaudra d'ailleurs l'obtention du Prix Nobel en 1920. Il publie en 1920 Femmes à la fontaine où s'expriment encore une fois l'amertume sociale de Knut Hamsun et sa veine satirique.
