Knut Hamsun …

Grfico1

Thomas Mann described him "as a descendant of Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Friedrich Nietzsche". Arthur Koestler was a fan of his love stories. H. G. Wells praised Markens Grøde (1917) for which Hamsun was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. Isaac Bashevis Singer was a fan of modern subjectivism, use of flashbacks, his use of fragmentation, and his lyricism. And Charles Bukowski called him the greatest writer to have ever lived.
