Detailed travelogue is a rich and loving portrait of the people and culture of Russia and is filled with the trademark style and keen observations of the author of such classics as Hunger Mysteries and Growth of the Soil In Wonderlan. Weird idiosyncratic and vivid travelogue of Hamsun's 1899 journey through the Caucasus region of Russia one which says as much about the eccentric and cantankerous author as the region itself I was inspired to re read this book at the onset of the Sochi Winter Olympics which were held in the same region through which Hamsun traveled I only gave this three stars the first time but apparently enjoyed it much the second time and thus have revised my rating to four stars If you've never read Hamsun read his early novels first but if you like those give In Wonderland a try

In WonderlandFirst published one hundred years ago and now translated into English for the first time by noted Norwegian scholar Sverre Lyngstad In Wonderland is a diaristic account of a trip Hamsun took to Russia at the turn of the century This. There is nothing nothing in the world like being away from everything 107 In Wonderland is Hamsun's diaristic account of the trip he took to Russia specifically to the Caucasus in 1899 shortly before the flames of revolution were to break out He documents his experiences and observations in a way that only the man of Mysteries could; Hamsun's English biographer Robert Ferguson rightfully called In Wonderland one of the most highly subjective travel books ever written It was classic Knut—better entertaining and memorable than I had expected it to be It was somewhat tarnished however by a couple of instances of anti Semitism So far I have not encountered this in his fiction of which I have read a great deal I say this not to brag but rather as a ualification in his favor This has always allowed me to separate Hamsun the artist from Hamsun who met Hitler with relative ease That boundary became blurred for the first time within his writing and it did not feel good It was by no means the worst kind to be fair—mostly limited to an ascription of Jewishness that was at the same time supposed to be something negative and unpleasant Yet it was enough to be noticeable and unsavory Anyway this is not the place to get into this difficult subject It is something I intend to write an essay about one day for it is important enough In any case iffyness about the aforementioned uestion aside and with an indulgent smile for some of his histrionics and a uestioning look for at the treatment of his wife whom he largely leaves out of his account referring to her only sporadically as his travelling companion it was wonderful to travel with Knut through the Caucasus
