Description - Pan by Knut Hamsun
Pan (1894) by Knut Hamsun who won the 1920 Nobel Prize in Literature, is a multi-layered psychological masterpiece of human perversity and pride in the face of love and sensual attraction. Romantically awkward hunter, fisherman and nature-lover Lieutenant Thomas Glahn lives in a cabin away from society -- alone, except for his dog and occasional interactions with the locals including the young and audacious Edwina, a free spirit who searches for a prince to conquer her, and has not yet met her match. The two commence a peculiar hot and cold relationship that evolves into a tragic psychological standoff. A classic literary probing of quirks and vulnerabilities of the psyche, set against the exquisite natural background of Norway.
