Very Good. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" Tall Octavo 028563383X Paperback Paperback. Tales of Love and Loss. Translated by Robert Ferguson. With twenty stories ranging over every imaginable human emotion and situation, this book, brilliantly translated by Robert Ferguson, offers a rare treat for all overs of great writing. Knut Hamsun published only three collections of short stories during his life, and after 1906 abandoned the form altogether. In contrast to his world-famous novels, these stories are hardly known outside Norway and most of those in his collection are now translated for the first time. They provide fascinating commentaries on the novels Hamsun was writing at the time and some alreayd contain echoes of his much later work. Alive by turns with humour, melancholy, tenderness and rough lawlessness, the variety is constantly refreshing and sparkling with psychological insights. Awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1920, Knut Hamsun remains one of the acknowledged giants of twentieth-century literature. 224 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions, Reference books, and all types of Academic Literature. )
