Wayfarers

Knut Hamsun


during this Norwegian saga of restlessness, Hamsun offers younger Edevart, a headstrong boy in poor health comfy with books, yet fiercely self-determined and wanting to break out his negative village of Polden. He turns into an in depth pal of August, a man-orphan, rootless, who sings incredible stories of a wondrous international. of their years of seafaring, peddling, and raucous-raising—sometimes jointly, occasionally separated—Edevart grows in figuring out, turning into a crafty businessman, experiencing the pleasure and devastation of affection and studying to benefit from the freedom of his wandering way of life. Nobel prize winner Hamsun expertly weaves the clashing ideologies—the draw of a snug domestic and the thrill of experience and the sea—with Edevart's personal picaresque, because it drifts among restlessness and a calm happiness.
