Reviews for Hunger
Knut Hamsun's Hunger is a synopsis of the psychological journey through the mind of a starving writer. It demonstrates the pride driven irrationality of the human soul in search for passion & acceptance.
Increasingly dark, our protagonist deteriorates, starving within his illusionary existence. Poignent, foolish, irrational, darkly humourous and unmistakenly a classic. I found myself intrigued and fascinated throughout.
Highly recommended literature and for me a great introduction to the Norwegian author Knut Hamsun. by Anthony
