Norwegian author, poet, dramatist and social critic. Hamsun is considered as one of the most important authors of the 20th century. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature, 1920.
During both the First and the Second World War, he publicly expressed his sympathy for Germany. A week after Hitler's death, Hamsun wrote a eulogy for Hitler. Following the end of the war, angry crowds burned his books in public in major Norwegian cities. Hamsun was forced to undergo a psychiatric examination, which concluded that he had "permanently impaired mental faculties", and on that basis the charges of treason were dropped. He was however financially ruined.
Hamsun died on 19 February 1952 in Grimstad, Norway, aged 92.
