Item description for Spring Night (Green Integer) by Tarjei Vesaas & Kenneth G. Chapman...

First published in Norway in 1954, this lyrical novel is about an abrupt change from childish dreams and safety to grown-up responsibilities and happiness. On the surface it deals with what happens to two youngsters left for a night alone on their parents' farm, but like The Ice Palace and other great novels by Vesaas, the themes are far deeper: How difficult the road is from I to you or we, even when love is involved.

Reviews - What do customers think about Spring Night (Green Integer)?

Another one of the Vesaas' books that start nicely, but end up terribly bad  Aug 31, 2006
The book revolves around two youths being home alone one weekend, and all that happens to them in a single spring night. The beginning is so much like many other Vesaas-novels, in the good way, but then it takes a turn for the worse. It starts out like many of his books in a tale about young love, and this is where Vesaas is at his best. Then suddenly for some reason he starts adding all these very annoying and surrealistic items and happenings, and they only make the story one of utter despair and unhappy lives.

I appreciate that he tried to be very "deep" and philosophical, but this just doesn't work at all. I've read all his 35 books, but I can safely advice you to skip this one, because it is simply bad literature, and with the added horror of his occasional present humanist streak. Two thumbs down!

(I read a different edition)
So good, so good  Apr 22, 1999
This is the book that can change your view of life. Two children, an accident... True life... One of the best books from Scandinavia ever...
