Tales of Love and Loss Summary


Tales of Love and Loss by Knut Hamsun

Twenty stories ranging over every imaginable human emotion and situation, Tales of Love and Loss is a treat for all lovers of great writing. Knut Hamsun published only three collections of short stories during his lifetime and abandoned the form entirely after 1906. Most of these stories are translated into English for the first time ans this is the first publication for them outside Norway. Providing a fascinating commentary on the novels Hamsun was writing at the time and with forebodings of his much later work these stories are indispensable.

About Knut Hamsun


Knut Hamsun published only three collections of short stories in his lifetime, and abandoned the form entirely in 1906. Yet these stories form a fascinating commentary on the novels he was writing at the time (including 'Hunger') and contain echoes of his much later work. Containing humour, melancholy, tenderness and rough lawlessness, the variety of his stories is constantly refreshing and sparkling with psychological insights. Knut Hamsun is recognised as one of the greatest literary figures of the twentieth century. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1920 for his novel Growth of the Soil.
