Om forfatteren

Knut Hamsun was the most influential writer of the late nineteenth century, creating a new literary style and a new literary type, the alienated outsider (typified in Mysteries), which became defining elements of modernism. In Growth of the Soil he created a novel of Biblical power, while Dreamers shows the gentler comic side of his imagination. Hamsun was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1920 and died in 1952.
