"A strange and beautiful book. It is also a book which requires a good deal from the reader, both of sympathy with its mood, and of a definite type of visualization. The author seems to have shunned drama, as interfering with the lyricism of his story. The pathos, the drama the reader must discern for himself, through the power of his own sympathetic imagination."Hamsun, Knut is the author of 'Pan ', published 1998 under ISBN 9780141180670 and ISBN 0141180676.
