Victoria by Knut Hamsun

Book Description

When it first appeared in 1898, this fourth novel by celebrated Norwegian writer Knut Hamsun captured instant acclaim for its poetic, psychologically intense portrayal of love s predicament in a class-bound society. Set in a coastal village of late nineteenth-century Norway, Victoria follows two doomed lovers through their thwarted lifelong romance. Johannes, the son of a miller, finds inspiration for his writing in his passionate devotion to Victoria, an impoverished aristocrat constrained by family loyalty. Separated by class barriers and social pressure, the fated pair parts ways, only to realize too late the grave misfortune of their lost opportunity. Elegantly rendered in this brand-new translation by Sverre Lyngstad, "Victoria" s haunting lyricism and emotional depth remain as timeless as ever.
