Fiction

As the modern industrialized world begins to encroach on a small, isolated coastal town of northern Norway, the effect is devastating. For young Edevart, uprooted from his simple origins it brings, progressive alienation from the old tradition; for August, the lying, charming scoundrel, it means opportunities that will threaten the stability of an as yet unspoiled community. 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.
