    Knut Hamsun's Hunger, first published in 1890 and hailed as the literary beginning of the 20th century, is a masterpiece of psychologically driven fiction. The story of a struggling artist living on the edge of starvation, the novel portrays the unnamed first-person narrator's descent into paranoia, despair, and madness as hunger overtakes him. As the protagonist loses his grip on reality, Hamsun brilliantly portrays the disturbing and irrational recesses of the human mind through increasingly disjointed and urgent prose.

    In Kristiania, dem heutigen Oslo, kämpft ein junger Schriftsteller Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts um Anerkennung für seine Werke. Doch trotz großer Begabung reicht das Geld, das er verdient, kaum zum Leben. Obdachlos und halb verhungert schleppt er sich durch die Straßen der norwegischen Hauptstadt, mal voller Hoffnung, mal verzweifelt und dem Wahnsinn nahe.
