The Wanderer is composed of two related novels Under the Autumn Star and On Muted Strings The first was definitely better than its sequel, which follows the same character Knut Pedersen, Hamsun s real name later on in his wanderings but I thoroughly enjoyed them both Hamsun has a unique talent for elevating the lives of ordinary people to a high level of general and artistic interest and his propensity for leavi
There are some who pick themselves up after a fall and continue on their way through life, with their blue and yellow bruises And there are others who never rise againThis sequel to Under the Autumn Star follows the same character Knut Pedersen, Hamsun s real name on his wanderings in the Norwegian countryside, six years later He ends up meeting many of the same characters in correspondingly late r stages of their lives The novel is not as compact and well crafted as its predecessorThere are some who pick themselves up after a fall and continue on their way through life, with their blue and yellow bruises And there are othe
Much like the tone of a book by Giono I m sure Giono was well aware of Hamsun , this is a lovely, simple story about a wanderer and his interactions with people and nature The sometimes surreal, magical imagery that crops up
This book includes two beautifully written novels about a man who travels through the Norwegian countryside picking up work at farms in various towns. Hamsun es un artesano de la palabra la calidez y precisi n con la que hilvana sus ideas es preciosa El noruego escribe como si alzase una cometa en los cielos comprende que, m s all de lo dicho, hay un vuelo, una danza que se da entre las nubes y el objeto En ese intervalo entre la idea y la expresi n, Hamsun hace de la afecci n la protagonista de su relato Comprende que, como bien explica al final de la novela, el vagabundo no es un sabio no es alguien que reflexiona al borde de la muert Hamsun es un artesano de la palabra la calidez y precisi n con la que hilvana sus ideas es preciosa El noruego escribe como si alzase una cometa en los cielos comprende que, m s all de lo dicho, hay un vuelo, una danza que se da entre las nubes y el objeto En ese intervalo entre la idea y la expresi n, Hamsun hace de la afecci n la protagonista de su relato Comprende que, como bien explica al final de la novela, el vagabundo no es un sabio no es alguien que reflexiona al
Rese a in progress The theme of a wandering man is central to many of Hamsun s characters, so it is perhaps only fitting that a book comprising of two of his writings be called The Wanderers The cover contains two inter twined Hamsun writings Under the Autumn Star and Wanderer plays on muted strings, the latter a sequel to the first and is a close but stale reflection of Hamsun s themes and moods, perhaps even a reflection of some of his own experiencesIn the former, the wanderer Knut Pedersen leaves behind hi The theme of a wandering man is central to many of Hamsun s characters, so it is perhaps only fitting that a book comprising of two of his writings be called The Wanderers The cover contains two inter twined Hamsun writings Under the Autumn Star and Wanderer plays on muted strings, the latter a sequel to the first and is a close but stale reflection of Hamsun s themes and moods, perhaps even a reflection of some of his own experiencesIn the former, the wanderer Knut Pede
THE BOOK SPEAKS OF THE FEELINGS OF AN OLD MAN AND HIS WANDERING BUSINESS the lines i liked in this book are maybe grindhusen is right, maybe it s a universal truth that something will turn up tomorrow as surely as it has today I WAS FREE AND UNKNOWNi thought to myself no,its not exactly roses,roses all the way when you go wandering one man marvel at my walking and walking without apparent purposeSix years gone, ay, so long
This is my least favorite out of the four by Hamsun I have read As in most of what he wrote I think a lot of his personal screwiness comes through in the main character of the book In this case its a man who spends his life roaming from town to town in Norway doing random labor for hire He gets stalkerish obsessions with women who it is in innappropriate for him to have interest in, namely the wives of his employers Mainly this book focuses on the main characters obsessions, manipulations an This is my least favorite out of the four by Hamsun I have read As in most of what he wrote I think a lot of his personal screwiness comes through in the main character of the book In this case its a man who spends his life roaming from town to town in Norway doing random labor for hire He gets stalkerish obsessions with women who it is in innappropriate for him to have interest in, namely the wives of his employers Mainly this book focuses on the main ch
