Summary

First published in 1894, "Pan" by Knut Hamsun is a love story about Thomas Glahn, a lone hunter and ex-military man, who lives in the wilderness with his only companion, a dog called Aesop. The story is set in Norway. Glahn, who is also the narrator in the story, survives through fishing and hunting. He is not a social person and prefers staying in the wilderness. The author states that he has an animal-like resemblance and wears leather. Upon meeting Edvarda, the daughter of a merchant in a nearby town, they are both strongly attracted to each other, but neither understands the other's love.

The author delves into the human psyche and reveals the different types of thoughts people have about others.
"Pan" was hailed for the beauty of its descriptions of nature by contemporaries.

Born in 1859 in Lom, Gudbrandsdalen, Norway, Knut Hamsun believed writers should write about the human mind. He wrote psychological works that included running inner monolog. Hamsun wrote plays, poetry, essays, short stories, over twenty novels, and a travelogue. He won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1920 for "Growth of the Soil".

    Mom caught me mind controlling sis. She didn’t know why her precious daughter was behaving in such a slutty manner. She blamed me. Ha, if only she knew.
    
    Distraught, mom drank the wine that I had laced.
    
    Now she was also my cum slut and would do whatever I told her to. Including fuck the dog.
    
    Excerpt:
    
    "Mom, come down and let me explain." Randy said as he pulled his cock from his sister's warm mouth.
    
    "My sweet little angel would never do this!" Ruth screamed at him as her eyes blazed with fury.
    
    "I was just sitting in my room and she called me and then she started stripping." He said, knowing she wouldn't buy that. Monica never could do anything wrong.
    
    Hell, if his sister had a been caught in the front room fucking twenty guys, mom would have shrugged her shoulders and allowed her to do it.
    
    The opposite was true if he even glanced at a stacked girl. His mother would've whacked him over the head and told him the mind his own business.
    
    "Do you expect me to believe that garbage?" Ruth strode over to him and slapped him on the cheek.
    
    With great reluctance, Randy pulled from his sister's warm mouth and when his mother struck him again, he blocked it.
    
    "Take care of Fido, sis." He glanced back at Monica as she bucked her hips, groaning with pleasure.
    
    "How dare you! I'm your mother and I can do whatever I want with you." She snarled.
    
    "Mom, if you ever want me to free sis from this, then you'll do what I want. Or she'll stay like this forever." He stated as he looked in her eyes.
    
    She recognized that he was dead serious and nodded her head.
    
    "Now come over here and sit down." He commanded as he pointed to the sofa.
    
    She dragged her feet to the couch and sat down as he instructed. Her eyes were like an angry cat's, ready to strike out.
    
    "You're going to drive me to drink, boy." She stated as she waited for him to explain himself.
    
    "Oh yes!" Monica groaned as Bruno spilled his dominant dog seed in her fertile womb. "That's it! I want all that dog cum deep in me."
    
    His mother gasped at the words spoken by her precious little angel. Then she turned her attention to him.
    
    "What have you done to her?" She demanded to know. "My baby would never do such nasty acts with a filthy animal!"

    The moment Steve turned 18, his bitch of a mother threw him out. That was the last straw. It was time to turn the tables. Obtaining a mind-control potion, he used it on his mother.
    
    Now she was at his beck and call and would do anything he desired.
    
    And what he desired, was her.
    
    
    Excerpt:
    
    "How dare she do this! Kicking me out of my home when I turned 18! She's a fucking bitch!" Steve stomped back and forth in the kitchen, feeling like a caged animal.
    
    "Calm down. You can stay here as long as you need too." Alfred said, leaning back in his chair. "I know she's treated you like a dog. She corrected you all the time with the belt. She's cucked you big time."
    
    "Thanks, but I want to control her for once." Steve said, stopping as the thought hit him. He shook with fear and anticipation as he looked at his friend.
    
    "You can do that." Alfred said, pulling something out of his pocket and placing it on the table. It was a strange-looking yellow vial.
    
    "What's that?" Steve inquired, looking at it.
    
    "It's a mind-control drug." His friend said, pushing up his glasses.
    
    "You're kidding." Steve scoffed, knowing those things were the stuff of science fiction.
    
    "No, I'm not. Get your mom to drink this and she's yours to do whatever you want." He said with a grin.
    
    "You're pulling my leg." Steve chuckled.
    
    "Nope. Try it. If it doesn't work, I'll give you 100 bucks, If it works I want your mom for a night. Agreed?" Alfred said.
    
    Steve mulled it over and stuck out his hand.
    
    
    "Mom." Steve called out, entering his former home.
    
    "Get out of my house, bastard. You're an adult now and you're on your own." His mom stormed down the stairs with a belt which she slapped on her palm.
    
    Steve controlled a shudder that threatened to crawl up his spine and clench around his heart. There was nothing more he feared than his mother's wrath.
    
    "I thought you might like some wine. Just wanted to come by and say thanks for kicking me out of the house." The lie slipped from his lips as he went into the kitchen and poured her a glass of wine. He slipped the drug into her drink and brought it to her with the bottle.
