"Originally published in 1890, this classic of modern literature follows an impoverished Norwegian writer through the streets of Christiania (now Oslo) as he struggles on the edge of starvation. Existing on what little money he makes from selling the occasional article to the local paper, and down to pawning the clothes on his back, the young writer slowly loses control of his reason and begins to slip increasingly into bouts of madness, paranoia, and despair."--BOOK JACKET.

Look back on happiness by Knut Hamsun ( Book )
42 editions published between 1912 and 2010 in 8 languages and held by 416 libraries worldwide
Published in Norway in 1912, "The Last Joy (Den Siste Glaede") appears at an important transition point in Hamsun's career, as he moved any from his intense observations of individual characters to focus on a broader canvas of small town and farm life social units of the Norwegian culture. If Hunger (1890) represents the epitome Hamsun's focus on the individual, his works of the late teens and 1920s, particularly "Growth of the Soil "(1917) and "Women at the Pump" (1920) best represent the latter. "The Last Joy "lies somewhere between, with all the comic eccentricity of Hamsun's great individualistic portraits and the small-town pretensions and social inter-relationships of his later works.
