    1 thought on “Victoria”

    1. you would think i would have sopped this thing up with a hunk of bread: doomed lovers, the impossibility of communication, the way we hurt the ones we love? that should have karen's stamp of approval all over it. but it's like hamsun took a great idea for literary exploration and then constructed this wooden fence all around the emotional appeal and said "you are not coming in!" and i'm like, "dude, come on - just let me care about the characters a little bit". and hamsun's all "no way, jose". s [...]

    2. ‘Love became the world’s beginning and the world’s ruler; but all its ways are full of flowers and blood, flowers and blood.’ The passions and desires of young love, and the frustration of love torn apart by society, is a source of considerable energy that has been harnessed by writers through all of history. Nobel laureate Knut Hamsun’s 1898 novella, Victoria, draws on this energy to fuel his unextinguishable prose and return to the theme of doomed love, a theme characteristic of his [...]

    3. When he grew up he wanted to be a diver. That was a sure thing. Then he would go down into the ocean from the deck a ship and come to strange lands, to kingdoms with swaying forests, vast and mysterious, and with a coral palace on the ocean floor. And the princess waves to him from a window and says, Come in! Johannes is a bright young boy with a vivid imagination growing up in a poor household near the sea. His dreams alternate between adventure and romance, fueled by the passing ships and by t [...]

    4. The odds were that I wouldn't like this book. It had many of the features I found fault with in the contemporary bestseller "One Day" by David Nicholls: a frustrating main character who falls deeply and irrevocably in love with someone clearly unsuitable who doesn't initially return his regard; many occasions when the pair might have come together but were prevented by misunderstandings and other frustrating circumstances; in short, too much melodrama right up to the very end. So why did I like [...]

    5. Imagine love in its complicated state, love as a psychological battle: dreamlike and disappointing; love that never materializes into a relationship, never fully processed; love poured into the literary art as a parallel to love that cannot be. For this isn't simply air-brushed romance, this has melancholy imbued.Oh Johannes, he who initially exists in his semi-delirious happy frame of mind, in his dream world of love proclamation. She loves him? She loves him not? Victoria lives in a castle and [...]

    6. Suppose you met someone when you were young, and something happened that convinced you beyond reasonable doubt that they loved you, and you loved them. And then, suppose that there were all sorts of practical problems, and that, on the rare occasions when you did meet them, you said the wrong thing, or they said the wrong thing, and people were hurt, or lost their tempers, and you started to wonder if you'd just hallucinated it all. And that this continued for your whole life.Well, if you've eve [...]

    7. There are some books that have a lasting impact on one’s life, books that leave an indelible mark on one’s deepest emotions. For me there are a number, but Victoria by Knut Hamsun occupies a special place as the most captivating and heart-breaking love story ever written. I read it in my mid-teens, in the full flood of my most romantic period. It’s a short novel; I finished it in less than two hours in a single sitting, overwhelmed by the poetic intensity of the prose, overwhelmed by the s [...]

    8. حاولت أن أفهم شخصية كنوت من خلال هذه الرواية التي فاجأني توجهها فلايبدو أبدا أن الرواية الرومانسية الكلاسيكية الطابع من توجهات هامبسون خاصة لمن قرأ ملحمته الزراعية واخضرت الأرض أو لمن قرأ رائعته الجوع هناك إنقلابا في هذه الرواية لكن ليس كل الإنقلابات ذات نتيجة مرضية ربما [...]

    9. I read this novel in the Eighties. Victoria is one of the most beautiful short novels in Literature.Though titled Victoria, the protagonist is Johannes, the miller's son. He is a boy who wants to work in a match factory because, “he could get sulphur on his hands so that nobody would dare to shake hands with him”. Later, as a man, he spends his nights writing epic poetry, capping a productive session with loud singing that wakes his neighbours. Johannes is proud to know the stones and the st [...]

    11. Who am I to say that a Nobel prize winning author is just phoning it in? Especially since I’ve yet to find real enjoyment in Hamsun’s writing? If I had just picked this book up and read it I wouldn’t have enjoyed it too much, it’s a tad bit too melodramatic with a bit of the coldness of say Strindberg and the inexplicable manly rage of DH Lawrence’s male characters (but not their latent gayness, which maybe I’ll share my theory on this at some other time in a DH Lawrence review). Can [...]

    12. Любовта идва безцеремонна и млада, не(у)зряла (за жалост такава си и остава) и прави в душите своя дълбок прорез, от който капе кръв за цял живот. „Виктория“ носи полъх на отколешни табута и неосъществени съдби. Противно на анотацията, смятам, че повестта е пропита и с голяма [...]

    13. كسى مى پرسد كه عشق چيست، عشق فقط نسيمى است كه در ميان گلها به زمزمه مى پردازد، سپس آرام مى گيرد و مى ميرد. اما غالبا شبيه به مهرى ناشكننده است كه براي تمام مدت زندگي، تا دم مرگ، دوام مى آورد.

    14. Νομίζω πως δε μου ταιριάζει ο Χαμσούν. Η πρώτη απόπειρα ήταν πριν από 2,5 χρόνια περίπου με τον Παν που έπληξα θανάσιμα κι έσπασα κάθε χρόνο ανάγνωσης, δαπανώντας 3 μήνες και τελικά δεν το τελείωσα. Φοβάμαι ότι συνεχώς τον ιχνογραφώ, να αντιγράφει κάποιο άλλο συγγραφέα, όχι σε [...]

    15. Llegué a este libro debido a mi lectura inmediata anterior que fue la novela “Hambre” de este mismo autor, la cual me impactó bastante y por esta razón y también debido a que encontré una edición muy bonita de la novela “Victoria” del mismo autor, pensé que era una buena idea hacer algo que nunca había hecho: leer dos obras seguidas de un mismo autor.Sin embargo considero que la obra llamada “Hambre” ha dejado el listón muy alto y las expectativas que me formé en torno a to [...]

    16. Höff. Madam Bovary tadında illetlik verici bir aşk hikâyesi. Aşırı sıkıcı. Neyse, olur öyle.Behçet Necatigil de çeviride coşmuş. Victoria'yı 'Allaha hamd-ü sena' ettiriyor Dehşet Necatigil.

    17. "Postoji legenda o čoveku čije je molitve bog uslišio, pa je dobio svoju prvu i jedinu ljubav. Ali to je bila jedina radost koju je dobio."

    18. رمان عاشقانه بود؟ بله اما نه سخیف و نه عمیق. همان طور مثل فرهنگ این مرز و بوم، کم‌رنگ و سرد.

    19. This is a very slim novel, and it tells a story that had been told a great many times over the years – the story of young lovers from different classes, pulled together by love but pulled in different directions by life – but it is so well told and so distinctive the I found it irresistible.Vitoria and Johannes had always known each other. She was daughter of a wealthy landowner, he was the son of a miller, and their paths crossed whenever Victoria’s family visited their country estate. Jo [...]

    20. "Victória" conta-nos a história mais antiga do mundo, escrita com rara beleza e encanto.“ Mas o que era o amor? Um vento que sussurra entre as rosas? Não, uma fosforescência amarelada no sangue. O amor era uma música de um fervor infernal que pode fazer dançar o coração dos velhos. Era como a margarida que se abre totalmente com o aproximar da noite, era como uma anémona que se fecha ao mais ténue sopro e morre quando é tocada.O amor era isso.Podia destruir um homem, reerguê-lo par [...]

    21. Other than a vivid drowning rescue and some sadsack suggestions about true love, this is simply flat. Sucky compared to his better known novels -- a dull, poorly characterized (can't picture these characters other than Johannes and his tan wrists), muddy novella at best. One character's head is blown to bits and I didn't care since he made almost no impression. There's an immolation scene too that leads to an inferno but it happens too quickly and reads like bad Gothic lit. Can't believe he wrot [...]

    22. Victoria‬‬, Knut Hamsun (1859 - 1952)عنوان: ویکتوریا؛ اثر: کنوت هامسون؛ مترجم: قاسم صنعوی؛ مشخصات نشر: مشهد، نشر نیما، 1364، در 144 ص، چاپ دیگر: گل آذین 1382 در 166 ص، موضوع: داستانهای نویسندگان نروژی قرن 19 م، چاپ پنجم 1388، شابک: 9789647703048؛ ا

    23. A short simple and profound love story which captures the intensity, passion and hopelessness of love; especially young love. The two protagonists Johannes and Victoria fall in love in early teenage and the story develops over a period of years. They manage to hurt each other, be shy, clumsy and avoid sharing their feelings. The language of this book is poetic and lyrical. Reading this as an adult; it was moving, but I wonder how I would have felt about it as a teenager; it may have had a more p [...]

    24. I did not know Knut Hamsun could write so well. This is one of the most intense love stories I read lately.

    25. The first time I read Victoria I was 11. Ok, I know, a little young for this type of novel I remember being able to appreciate the prose, the fluidity of it (at least in Norwegian), but I also remember being irritated at both Johannes and Victoria, not understanding their love or their actions. An 11-year old hasn't typically had the life experience to be able to understand or appreciate this type of work, or at least I certainly hadn't. Not having reread it since, I happened on it as I was orga [...]

    26. Il sottotitolo recita “Storia di un amore”, ma forse sarebbe stato più appropriato “Stati d’animo nel corso di un amore”. Un amore infelice, ça va sans dire. Victoria, appartenente alle classi alte, e Johannes, figlio di un mugnaio, si conosco sin da piccoli. Le barriere sociali esistono e si sentono, ma loro sono ancora in quell’età in cui è possibile aggirarle, se non proprio ignorarle. Complice la natura e i luoghi, lontani dalla città, si sviluppa così una simpatia che non [...]

    27. Victoria é uma espécie de sucessor espiritual de Pan, embora se leiam como duas faces da mesma moeda. Aqui, também o amor impossível se apresenta de forma sonhadora e quase surreal como um conto. Johannes é o filho do moleiro e companheiro de brincadeiras de Victoria, a filha do castelão. Na inocência da idade são inseparáveis, em adultos desencontram-se: Johannes vai para a cidade onde conclui os seus estudos e se torna num escritor de sucesso, enquanto Victoria é obrigada a casar com [...]

    28. O escritor norueguês Knut Hamsun (1859-1939), Prémio Nobel da Literatura em 1920, publicou o romance “Victoria” em 1898, quatro anos depois de “Pan” (1984).O jovem Johannes, filho do moleiro, é apaixonado por Victoria, filha de um grande proprietário de terras – o castelão – mas que tem graves problemas financeiros. Apesar desse amor adolescente, Victoria é obrigada a sacrificar essa paixão pela estabilidade familiar e financeira da sua família casando-se com o tenente Otto. [...]
