        What are we going to do with Knut Hamsun?

        Release date : 16/08/2018
        By devoting her novel to Knut Hamsun’s final years, Christine Barthe seeks to uncover the mystery of an extreme political slide without giving up on her passion for the Norwegian writer.
        Some men are fantastic creators. Knut Hamsun, the autodidact and son of a peasant, became the greatest Norwegian writer of the twentieth century. His first novel, Hunger, written in 1890 when he was thirty, made him famous. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1920 and became the master... Some men are fantastic creators. Knut Hamsun, the autodidact and son of a peasant, became the greatest Norwegian writer of the twentieth century. His first novel, Hunger, written in 1890 when he was thirty, made him famous. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1920 and became the master of the modern novel.
        But his fate is marked by a tragic slide towards radicalism. The man who could so skillfully evoke his inner battles finds himself in the most diabolical of contradictions: as a monstrous war devastates the world, Knut Hamsun is supporting the executioner while protecting the victims. On one hand, the man of letters publishes articles on Adolf Hitler, while on the other he spares no effort to save his Jewish friends. Norway is astonished to discover that its beloved author believes in a new world… a Germano-Nordic world.
        Now in his eighties, Knut Hamsun finds himself alone. For three years, he will devote himself to “remaining standing” while the Norwegian authorities, not knowing what to do with the misled literary genius, intern him in a hospice for the elderly, then a psychiatric ward. The best thing would be for him to pass away, so the trial is postponed and everyone awaits the verdict from a professor of psychiatry. But Hamsun has no intention of being broken; he wants to be judged. He’s not soft in the head!
        In the dead of night, a woman will come out of the silence. She will take up her pen and write a long letter to Hamsun. What have you done? she asks him. In the name of Norway and in the name of the love I have for you, Hamsun, what was it you wanted to do during this war, exactly?
