the inventor of a certain kind of modern fictionality. Hamsun's development of the stream of consciousness becomes particularly beautiful, and extremely comic .... Mysteries is as great as Hunger. -- James Wood
Hamsun is one of the great writers of this century - his nearest British equivalent being I suspect Thomas Hardy. Hamsun's novels have a unique beauty of expression. * Sunday Times *
Hamsun has the qualities that belong to the very great, the completest omniscience about human nature. -- Rebecca West
A rare understanding of human nature comes through, expressed in a measured, elegiac and lyrical prose. * Sunday Telegraph *
With Mysteries, Hamsun rewrote the novel's rules * Guardian *
