More > Norwegian author, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1920. Hamsun's work spans more than 70 years and shows variation with regard to the subject, perspective and environment. He published more than 20 novels, a collection of poetry, some short stories and plays, a travelogue, and some essays.The young Hamsun objected to realism and naturalism. He argued that the main object of modernist literature should be the intricacies of the human mind, that writers should describe the "whisper of blood, and the pleading of bone marrow". Hamsun is considered the "leader of the Neo-Romantic revolt at the turn of the 20th century", with works such as Hunger (1890), Mysteries (1892), Pan (1894), and Victoria (1898).

The main themes in his work are death and the meaning of life. Excerpt from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maurice_Maeterlinck< Less

Nikolai Gogol: Associative Perusal Experience By Vladimir Chinarov

This book does not resemble the classical scholarly writings. It rather grew out of the personal needs of an author to reveal his findings which concern the associative perusal of nice and strange... More > works created by Nikolai Gogol. The protagonist here is not Gogol himself but the beautiful city of Vienna in 1913, where our famous writer, according to some imaginary assumption, “mysteriously met” a lot of prominent people from cultural and political spectrum. Such a fictitious approach is based on the fascinating relationship of Gogol's art to works of different artists of that time, to name a few: Musil, Kassner, Roth, Broch, Klimt as well as scientists: Einstein, Wittgenstein, Freud and others. The relevance of some issues of physics as well as metaphysics to Gogol's life and work is also shown. Through Gogol the intercultural connections of different ideas and thoughts with regard to Shakespeare, Swedenborg, Dee, mysticism, Freemasons, the present and former Ukrainian and Russian history is discussed.< Less

More > unusual richness of motives, ranging from family situations, childhood memories and landscape observations to passion, love, loss and loneliness. Despite these innumerable and varied glimpses from the life of a mature poet, there is no danger of disintegration of poetic style or character. All through the volume we are struck by the poet’s ability to let her own distinctive features mould her visions into verses, features that are characterised by humour, sincerity, sometimes irony as well as a deep wonder at the small and big mysteries of life. The images and sceneries in many of the poems reveal the poet’s practice as a painter. In the most intimate poems we sense the almost physical presence of the poet and at the same time we have a feeling that everyday words put on a deeper symbolic message." Jostein Sæbøe< Less
