This, the second of a two-volume edition of the selected letters of Knut Hamsun in English translation, follows the career of this major European novelist and writer, from his problem-filled middle life at the turn of the century to his death at the age of 92 in 1952. These letters reveal many aspects of Hamsun's private and public life: the tireless and total dedication to his writing which earned him the Nobel Prize in 1922, the personal anguish and joy which two marriages and a divorce brought him, the strange juxtaposition of the warmly sympathetic and the unexpectedly repellent sides of his personality, and the political defiance of his later years which left him alienated and alone among his fellow countrymen.

Available with Volume 1 for £14.95.
