Críticas:

"Knut Hamsun is a very important contribution not only to the study of Knut Hamsun's oeuvre, but also to the general study of literature. By asking the question of how Hamsun's works have been affected by his political and social attitudes, eagar offers an instructive example of how crucial it is not to separate literary works from the context that enabled them." Jan Sjavik, professor of Scandinavian studies, University of Washington "eagar makes a strong case for the importance of discussing Hamsun's views on modernity, race, genetics, eugenics, and gender to understand his 'repugnant politics.'" Anne Sabo, associate professor of Norwegian, St. Olaf College "What if instead of attempting to separate Hamsun's politics and his art, ... eagar seem(s) to be hinting ... in her superb new academic study, ... we took it for granted that the two were inextricably intertwined -- that one would never have been possible without the other? Where would we be then?"Matthew Shaer, Los Angeles Times

Reseña del editor:

Awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1920, Knut Hamsun (1859-1952) was a towering figure of Norwegian letters. He was also a Nazi sympathizer and supporter of the German occupation of Norway during the Second World War. In 1943, Hamsun sent his Nobel medal to Third-Reich propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels as a token of his admiration and authored a reverential obituary for Hitler in May 1945. For decades, scholars have wrestled with the dichotomy between Hamsun's merits as a writer and his infamous ties to Nazism. In her incisive study of Hamsun, Monika eagar refuses to separate his political and cultural ideas from an analysis of his highly regarded writing. Inspecting a number of his works, she reveals the ways in which messages of racism and sexism appear in plays, fiction, and none-too-subtle nonfiction produced by a prolific author over the course of his long career. In the process, eagar illuminates Norway's long history of interaction with people at home and abroad. Focusing on selected masterpieces and drawing upon writings hitherto largely ignored, eagar demonstrates that Hamsun did not arrive at his notions of race and gender late in life. Rather, his ideas were rooted in a mindset that idealized Norwegian rural life, embraced racial hierarchy, and tightly defined the acceptable notion of women in society. Making the case that Hamsun's support of Nazi political ideals was a natural outgrowth of his reactionary aversion to modernity, Knut Hamsun serves as a corrective to scholarship treating Hamsun's Nazi ties as unpleasant but peripheral details of a life of literary achievement. Monika eagar is associate professor of Scandinavian studies at the University of Minnesota.
