Overview

Combined edition of J.S. Scott's English translations of 1920 Nobel Prize laureate Knut Hamsun's Segelfoss novels, Children of the Age (Børn av Tiden) and Segelfoss Town (Segelfoss By), originally published in Norway in 1913 and 1915, respectively.

The novels were Hamsun's criticism of modern times, depicting the fall of the landed gentry and the rise of the working class, and were the first of his works devoted to social issues. Monika Zagar, writing in Knut Hamsun: The Dark Side of Literary Brilliance (2009), described them as "much more than dry social analysis; indeed, they investigate, in rich novelistic form, the propagation and survival of a family."

"Hamsun's art at its best"

- The Literary Digest International Book Review (1924)

"Among the best of Hamsun's works. . . . minute in detail and yet its significance is sweeping."

- Detroit Free Press (1925)
