Zwischen Aphoristik und Lyrik: Gunnar Björling

Abstract [en]

The article is an attempt to characterise Gunnar Björling's achievement as a writer by situating him in an aphoristic tradition, that he however transforms radically in terms of lyrical modernism. The argument is that the genre of aphorism generally has changed since romanticism, and become more subjective, temporally bound and lyrical in its rhetoric and syntactic structure. Björling enforces this change in the direction of formal fragmentation while keeping the traditional lyrical address and pathos. The argument is based on a chapter in the author's book Skillnadens konst. Sex kapitel om moderna fragment (2006).
