      I often catch myself staring, rather lovingly in fact, at my bookshelves Each shelf is swelling nearly to the point of overflowing with books, each authors collection seemingly positioned at random yet, somehow, the location of each work holds some secret form of order that is beyond even me I ll caress each spine with my eyes, occasionally running a finger down it to feel a spark of retrospection and for a moment recall the times when I held a particular book during the course of absorbing it I [...]

      Discombobulated frenzied distracted rambling and oh so BRILLIANT.Knut Hamsun s fevered, stream of consciousness classic is something special Unwaveringly in the now, this novel s every word felt as if it had fallen from the narrator s mind, unfiltered, unrestrained, and unreflected upon Wow, was this something The unnamed narrator, with his exaggerated and unjustified notions of his own superiority reminded me a lot of Raskolnikov from Crime and Punishment, while the disjointed style and unrelia [...]

      What is it that differentiates dignity from stubbornness Moral rectitude from pride Attitude Intention Motivation.Knut Hamsun s autobiographical novella explores the tenuous line that separates the iron will from the almost obsession of an aspiring writer who refuses to give way to the silent pressure of a dehumanized society that insists on nullifying his efforts to earn his living through his writing.The protagonist is a nameless narrator who seldom raises sympathy from an estranged reader bec [...]

      I did not feel anything while reading this novel.Well, this is not strictly true What I mean is that I felt no pity, no compassion, no sorrow, no empathy, while following the struggles, the penuries, the poverty, the deprivation, the hunger, of the nameless protagonist My feelings were not of the humanitarian type, but of the literary.I was astonished at the literary proposal Hamsun had written in what was still the nineteenth century The fl neur existence of the narrator made me think of Baudel [...]

      A review of this book from my pen is akin to injustice After all, what do I know of hunger Something that loses its meaning with a hop to the kitchen A need that vanishes with the stair climbing to the canteen A routine that knocks every four hours, only to be dispatched back to its den with a pouring of necessary and unnecessary stuff A fuel that is available at an arm s length A six lettered word that assumes greater importance in symbolic garb than its bare attire I have been fortunate This b [...]

      Last night the fog finally left me as effortlessly as it had arrived seven months ago My mourning period was now officially over, although the good memories would be firmly entrenched forever in my mind, as well as the sad ones I shed my widow s weeds Also the tears surprisingly enough poured for the first time in ages I certainly do not have a weak character I had been in the doldrums and was not progressing, nor turning the page Knut showed me via Hunger Norwegian Sult that one has to continue [...]

      This powerful work of writing by Knut Hamsun, clearly lets you think what the state of hunger can do to a human being Yes, by hunger , the author does really refer to the state of starvation in the absence of food This idea of hunger , which looks like just another figure when it makes its appearance in one s view in the form of some statistics, something which the well to do people cannot even imagine about, is the essential sketch of this extremely thought provoking work by Hamsun.Telling us a [...]

      Started reading the original Norwegian edition today I m fluent in Swedish but don t really know Norwegian, though I have read maybe half a dozen Norwegian books Comparing with English, it s rather like reading something in broad Scots dialect that s been written down phonetically Iain Banks fans will be able to relate.So far, it s pretty good, but I m only 15 pages into it I come down the main staircase of the hotel At reception, Zenit, the lovely Indian Swedish girl, is on duty again I pause a [...]

      I have a confession to make Well, it s not really a confession if I ve alluded to it in the past I m cheap I spend freely, I mean, and it doesn t take much convincing for me to go ahead and make some purchase especially if it s a book when I really shouldn t Don t ever take me shopping in hopes that I ll convince you not to make that purchase, either So I downloaded the free kindle version of this I have too many books and I do that shit anyway I think there s something wrong with the kindle ver [...]

      Very reminiscent of a couple of books I have already read, including Orwell s Down and Out in Paris and London Very dire account of a starving writer trying to find work and food at the same time Especially interesting to me was the fact that the protagonist still valued maintaining his dignity over everything else His interior dialogue was definitely reminiscent of Job speaking to God in the Old Testament I liked the archaic style the book was written in Case in point was the word zounds which [...]

      He sure would like a meal, yes, but so, why won t anybody listen What the hell is wrong with everyone None of them are truly getting it They don t understand the urgency Look at them in their warm clothes and their comfortable houses Why do their eyes laugh at him Is there nothing left but mockery I wonder how he came to be in such circumstances What led to this downward spiral Even if I could ask him, could he even explain it None of us can pinpoint the moment when it all started going south f [...]

      I m pretty lucky, I guess I ve been middle class all my life, never had to worry about where my next meal was coming from or if there would be a next meal I ve never known starvation, despite saying stuff like I m starving when it s a half hour past lunchtime and I haven t eaten yet So why do I identify with the undernourished protagonist of Hunger so strongly Perhaps it s because I m an introvert like the protagonist, I sometimes have internal conversations with myself in the third person, or r [...]

      I can now eat without feeling guilty any What is really fascinating in this novel is how the protagonist try to maintain his dignity until the last breath,Although at some times his disparate need to eat make him lose dignity,gradually and cursing his fate and looking down at himself and feeling inferior because of the fact he is poor and that he can do nothing to change it It explores the depths of the human soul against the bitterness of hungerwhich could push someone to the borders of madness [...]
