Knut Hamsun (1859–1952) was a Nobel prize winning Norwegian writer, whose "Victoria" is a perfect representation of the author's acclaimed ability to manifest narrative clarity that, in turn, reveals the inevitability of a lyric, human depth. This novel is considered one of his best works, and follows the magnetic desire of "star-crossed lovers" through to past its moment of triumph, into an aftermath of mutual cruelty and insufferable apartness that excites and torments the characters in turn. Translated from the Norwegian by Olvier Stallybrass.
