Knut Hamsun, Eugene Gay-Tifft (Translator). Hamsun understands August very well; he describes his successes and failures, his flaws and his attributes, with great clarity but also with a certain kindness and sympathy

Knut Hamsun, Eugene Gay-Tifft (Translator). I August (1930) er hovedpersonen, som Hamsun første gang hadde skildret i Landstrykere (1927), blitt en mann i slutten av 40-årene. Hamsun understands August very well; he describes his successes and failures, his flaws and his attributes, with great clarity but also with a certain kindness and sympathy. When the herring migrate farther down the shore or out to sea, the boom conditions for the little village change. Reading this in late 2009, as we cope with our boom-and-bust, made August, published in 1930 at the end of an earlier boom period, especially timely and applicable.

ACCORDING to a letter received by Coward-McCann from Eugene Gay-Tifft, who is translating Knut Hamsun's new book, to be published next Spring, the distinguished Norwegian novelist has, so far as the theme of his book is concerned, abandoned the peasantry, which he portrayed so skillfully in "Growth of the Soil" and other novels, and has gone in for modern, sophisticated.

KNUT HAMSUN 1859-1952 (NORWEGIAN) "The whole modern school of fiction in the twentieth century stems from Hamsun," writes Isaac Bashevis Singer in his introduction to Hamsun's first novel Suit (1890; Hunger ). Although Knut Hamsun was also a poet, short-story writer, and dramatist, Singer and other writers and critics think of him first and foremost as the creator of a new type of novel, what Hamsun himself described as "a book without marriages, country picnics or dances up at the big house.

"August" is the sequel to "Vagabonds," I believe, though I am not absolutely certain I have the sequence straight. If you like a book that takes you into a different, but perfectly real world, and makes you want to stay in that world as long as you can, you should like this Hamsun novel. Hamsun delights the reader with a full range of human foibles on display in the multiple characters who make the small village of Polden a surprisingly complete world. His affectionate touch on the strengths and the weaknesses of human nature plays on almost every page. Unlike most contemporary books, this one left me satisfied.

Postscript -- I see the other review on here refers to these as part of a trilogy. I know only of these two. If someone knows of a third novel about Polden, I'd love to hear about it.

August is the 2nd of 3 books in the August series. This novel pretty much stands alone in the works of Knut Hamsun. The novel doesn't really say much or do much, merely reporting furthur antics of August. While entertaining & enjoyabe (and a favorite among Norweigens), August is a definate letdown from all other Hamsun works I have read (Cultural Life...) aside.
