The novel foreshadows the writings of Franz Kafka and other twentieth-century novelists who explored the madness of the contemporary human condition.Hamsun, who describes the ‘whisper of blood, and the pleading of the marrow’ is considered to be one of the most influential and innovative literary stylists of the past century. He pioneered psychological literature with techniques such as stream of consciousness and the interior monologue and influenced authors such as Hermann Hesse, Franz Kafka, Henry Miller and Ernest Hemingway.The critic Isaac Bashevis Singer called him ‘the father of the modern school of literature in his every aspect—his subjectiveness, his fragmentariness, his use of flashbacks, his lyricism.

The whole modern school of fiction in the twentieth century stems from Hamsun’.This illustrated edition includes a biography and a short piece on how Hunger came to be published. Other important works by Hamsun include Pan (1894) and The Growth of the Soil (1917), for which he received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1920.
