Abstract [en]

Per Olov Enquist's 1985 novel Nedstörtad ängel (Downfall) is, despite its modest proportions, one of the most poetically powerful and intriguing works in his oeuvre. It consists of a number of disparate stories which are presented as intertwined fragments. This article argues that the novel creates its meaning in the manner of a large-scale metaphor, in which the different stories serve as the constituent subjects.
