When it first appeared in 1898, this fourth novel by celebrated Norwegian writer Knut Hamsun captured instant acclaim for its poetic, psychologically intense portrayal of loves predicament in a class-bound society. Set in a coastal village of late nineteenth- century Norway, Victoriafollows two doomed lovers through their thwarted lifelong romance. Johannes, the son of a miller, finds inspiration for his writing in his passionate devotion to Victoria, an impoverished aristocrat constrained by family loyalty. Separated by class barriers and social pressure, the fated pair parts ways, only to realizetoo latethe grave misfortune of their lost opportunity. Elegantly rendered in this brand-new translation by Sverre Lyngstad, Victorias haunting lyricism and emotional depth remain as timeless as ever.

Knut Pedersen Hamsun was born in Gudbrandsdalen, Norway on August 4, 1859 and grew up in poverty in Hamar�y. At the age of 17, he became an apprentice to a ropemaker and also began to dabble in writing. This eventually became his full-time career. He wrote numerous books during his lifetime including The Intellectual Life of Modern America, Hunger, and Pan. In 1920, his novel Growth of the Soil, a book describing the attraction and honesty of working with the land, won the Nobel Prize in Literature. As a supporter of Hitler and the Nazi Occupation of Norway during World War II, Hamsun was charged with treason for his affiliation with the party after the war ended. His property was seized, he was placed under psychiatric observation, and his last years were spent in poverty. He died on February 19, 1952. A 15-volume compilation of his complete works was published posthumously in 1954.

Knut Hamsun(18591952) won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1920. Sverre Lyngstadhas translated Hamsuns other novels for Penguin Classics and is Distinguished Professor Emeritus of English and comparative literature at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Brad Leithauseris a MacArthur Prizewinning novelist, poet, and critic who writes frequently about Nordic literature and teaches at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts.
