Unrequited love

by SuzanB on Jun 10, 2011

The narrator, a young man in his early 20's, falls in love with Rosa, a married woman. This novel is not as intense as some of Hamsun's earlier novels, but gives an interesting look at life in a Norwegian coastal village. Many of the characters who are first seen to be responsible and kind people turn out to have very odd quirks. Rosa is the exception, she remains steady throughout the story. More could be said, but I do not want to be a spoiler for future readers. A must for Hamsun fans.
