      This is a list of characters in Sigrid Undset's tetralogy The Master of Hestviken. As noted throughout the series, ties of kinship were a major feature of Norwegian social life, conferring various privileges and obligations, and Norwegians at all walks of life took care to keep track even of their more distant kin.   The trilogy earned Undset worldwide acclaim, and her second great medieval epic—the four-volume The Master of Hestviken (–)—confirmed her place as one of the twentieth century’s greatest writers. In , at the age of 46, she received the Nobel Prize in Literature, only the third woman to be so honored/5(5).

An epic novel by an incredible talented author. The Master of Hestviken is slower paced than Kristin Lavransdatter, but delves more deeply into the deep questions of life, redemption, mercy, and justice/5(7).

While she experienced success in her native Norway with her early modern novels, it his her pair of Medieval epics, "Kristin Lavransdatter" and "Master of Hestviken" (the latter was published as "Olav Audunsson" in Norway; its English translation was given the the title seen above/5.

Sigrid Undset's first volume of "The Master of Hestviken" is a very interesting book to read. It is not as fast paced as are most modern novels, but neither is it as slow as some eighteenth century novels such as Richardson's "Clarrissa." It is more deliberately paced.4/4(18).

Her novels encompass a variety of settings and time periods, ranging from medieval romances such as the Kristin Lavransdatter trilogy—generally considered to be her masterwork—and The Master of Hestvikentetralogy to modern novels such as The Winding Road,Ida Elisabeth, and The Faithful Wife.

She was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in /5(4).

The penultimate volume of Sigrid Undset's Master of Hestviken tetralogy, In the Wilderness finds Olav Audunsson mourning the death of Ingunn, his wife of about 20 years. In her absence, all ties he has to the world, to Hestviken (his family estate), to his daughter Cecilia, and to Eirik, the bastard son he has raised as his own, seem faint and weak/5.

The Axe (The Master of Hestviken, Vol. 1) by Sigrid Undset. Vintage, I wonder if any reader of Sigrid Undset comes to The Master of Hestviken first. It seems that most find their way here after spending many precious hours, days, and months living the story of Kristin Lavransdatter; the discovery of her world of 13th century Norway.

The Master of Hestviken is a tetrology (4 volumes) written between and Undset won the Nobel prize for literature in MoH seems darker to me with more personal anguish, "psychologically and romantically nuanced."/5. Like her better-known masterpiece, Kristin Lavransdatter, The Master of Hestviken follows the protagonist (Olav Audunsson) through a lifetime and is matched but not exceeded in scope by classics like War & Peace or Les Miserables/5.

These are volumes 1 () and 2 () of the Nobel prize-winning Undset's "The Master of Hestviken" series. Set in medieval Norway, the books follow Olav and Ingunn, who, though raised as brother and sister, have become lovers in a world caught between the fading sphere of pagan worship and vendettas and the expansion of Christianity/5(7).
