    Pan: From the Papers of Lieutenant Thomas Glahn

    Probably Hamsun's finest work. Besides being a captivating story of lonelyness and unrequited love, Pan is also the closest you can get to the northen norwegian wilderness without actually going there yourself. The epilogue is a stroke of genious!
