9780141180649: Hunger (Penguin world literature)

First published in 1890, this is a new edition of the major modernist novel from the Nobel prize winner. A compelling trip into the mind of a young writer driven by starvation to the extremes of madness and despair. Thomas Mann, Ernest Hemingway, Samuel Beckett and James Kelman are just some of the writers obviously influenced by and indebted to Hamsun.

Product Description:

Never quite falling into the abuss of suicide, Knut Hamsun's narrator/antihero veers wildly from a state of elation to black depression and back again as he stubbornly refuses to lower his aspirations to live exclusively from his earnings as a writer.

Review:

"Hunger is the crux of Hamsunís claims to mastery. This is the classic novel of humiliation, even beyond Dostoevsky." -- Observer

"Hunger was published in 1890 and its power has not faded." -- London Review Of Books

"One of the most disturbing novels in existence" -- Time Out
