At about fifteen, Hamsun had an experience which is rarely mentioned as part of the scant biographical material made available by his re serve concerning his own personality. He re turned to the old home of his parents in the Gud brand Valley and worked for a few months as clerk in a country store - a store just like any one of those that figure so conspicuously in almost every one of his novels. The place and the work must have made a revolutionary impression on him. It apparently aroused longings, and it prob ably laid the basis for resistances and resentments that later blossomed into weedlike abundance as he came in contact with real city life. There runs through his work a strange sense of sympathy for the little store on the border of the wilderness, but it is also stamped as the forerunner and panderer of the lures of the city.
