They went back to their work, but only after catching their breaths; something had spoken to them from beyond. All manner of drama develops, most of which would violate the Geneva Conventions on Spoilers if I told you.

The landscape in which hardworking farmers settled is breathtakingly beautiful in summer: The copy he gave me had once belonged to Norma M. This one reminds me a lot of the simplicity of John Williams’s “Stoner”, but with a lot less emotion. There is something heartbreakingly touching in the way that she longingly fondles whatever shiny trinkets – fragments from that unknown and longed-for world – might chance to wash up to her isolation.

In this case, a maid has had a child. At the beginning I enjoyed the ambitious, epic scope of the book and the compelling narrative.

Behind Isak and Inger’s I there is always the shadow of the mountains’ Thou. In the telling are involved a joint act of remembrance, but also of discovery, of pushi An effort to uncover and tell anew, with the technical means provided by the modern novel, the primal story that underlies all our partial stories. As much as a reader may want to come before a book with an open mind, there are always at least three barriers to an unadulterated read.

It needed nothing before it. So where’s the something “rotting him from within” akin to the case of Elesus? Just so, there is something unbridgeable between human characters, islands of incommunicable meaning that they are in this much vaster-than-human continuum that ever lies in the background of Hamsun’s explicit narrative.

Hamsun’s mastery of storytelling is evident throughout the book, and the raw, dark story of a first settler in an uninhabited area of the Far North and the subsequent establishment of a growing settlement is nothing short of captivating.

This is a book of survival but with a man who is so happy with his new found state. Before endeavouring to negotiate our relations with people, with society, or with inherited systems of values and ideas – before the religious question itself – there is established, willy-nilly, in solitude and silence, a personal relationship with nature, that perennial background and source of all possible meanings.

Where Isak is firmly rooted – ensconced, one might almost say – in this land he himself has shaped his ponderous presence in the landscape is always depicted somewhat reverently with a semi-mythical flairInger is tormented by the echo of distances, of that vast world outside their valley, which she longs to see. Characters have always been a strong point for Hamsun.

It sounded like a familiar myth, something inevitably written by someone who has never experienced rural deprivation. There are a couple of powerful scenes scattered around as well – such as one where he can’t dig out a rock because of his ageing body and is embarrassed or where he must seek the legal ownership of land It started off greatly.

Enlace corto a esta nota: He’s not writing his letters to get Inger a lighter sentence and negotiating with his wife’s family for financial assurance out in the rural home so esteemed in the book, that’s for sure. Oct 25, Ken rated it really liked it Shelves: Ir a la barra de herramientas Buscar.

And certainly Tolstoy, a fan of the clever and hardworking peasant in his day. What I enjoyed was the easy pace, the healthy tendrils of culturally rich storyline, the understated poetry of humans fully committed to their landscape. He walks and walks, in a silence broken by neither bird nor beast. This impresses me as a quite enlightened point of view for the time in which it was written. View all 28 comments.
