The resigned attitude showed by Kristin whenever she is delivered a tragic blow brings digressive inner monologues that circle around God-fearing arguments that, in my opinion, taint the luscious descriptions of the Scandinavian landscape and its powerful symbolism.

In the end, I got the feeling that Undset was somehow impugning the prevailing naturalistic doctrines in the 19thC that vouched for a positive socio-cultural determinism. Life, like the river that inexorably advances and drags away the dust of faceless generations, looms larger when it reaches the end. Even the floral wreaths worn by virginal Norwegian maidens wither with the erosion of lifetimes spent in obsessive repentance; and a thorny cross is all that is left of their testimony.

A quali cronache rimandarvi? Immaginate un giovane, cammina sulla riva di un lago In un mattino torrido. Brillano le libellule diafane Sui giunchi, come sempre. Capite: nulla. Uomini sulla luna.
