In their gossiping at the pumps the women express the poetry, the tawdriness and, above all, the sheer vitality of life in Hamsun?s small costal town. A birth (where did those brown eyes come from?); a marriage (shotgun?); a death in strang circumstances (the victim flattened by a barrel of whale oil); the up ? and ? down career of the town?s leading citizen and philanderer; the elderly spinster?s preganancy; the inking of the steamship that is the town?s pride and joy. Born in 1859, Knut Hamsun's early works were forceful and polemic before he became more compassionate, drawing inspiration from the country people of his native Norway. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1920 for Growth of the Soil. He has been recognised as one of the greatest literary figures of the twentieth century.
