    Rätten att benämna: Maktutövning i Amalie Skrams psykiatriromaner2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Amalie Skram (1846-1905) was born in Norway but lived in Denmark. She published several books about gender relations and built up a reputation as a naturalistic writer. In 1894, a nervous breakdown made her seek help from the famous psychiatrist Knud Pontoppidan. He sent her to an asylum, but she returned home after spending two months in psychiatric care. In 1895, Skram published two novels about the painter Else Kant, based on her own experiences but not written as autobiographies. The books, Professor Hieronimus and På Sct. Jørgen, came to be part of an ongoing debate about the rights of psychiatric patients.

    My purpose is to analyze the exercise of power in Skram's portrayal of psychiatry, especially the way it is gendered. The power relations are examined with concepts established by Foucault in his power analysis and with relevant medical history as a context. I treat the books as fictive narratives, that should not be seen as describing Skram's own experiences.

    My result actualizes several of Foucault's main concepts. Psychiatry works through the power to define – the right to give a name. Psychiatry define what madness is, and thus what normality is. The patient is, when defined as mad, also defined as unable to tell the truth about herself and the world. The treatment is a project of normalization and moral upbringing, where the patient is required to learn the norms she is thought to lack, and also to control her feelings instead of expressing them. Hysteria is the diagnosis for expressing strong feelings and can be read as an opposition to the male society, as well as the medical system.

    Gazes play a big part in these two books. Else is looked at by the medical, defining, gaze. She is herself observing the psychiatry and uses her gaze to look at the other patients in a way that raises questions about both abnormality and normality. In my reading, the gaze exercises power and the so called "male gaze" can also be used by women.

    The text is ambivalent concerning Else's possible madness. She is described as troubled and almost psychotic in the beginning, but later as sane. My conclusion is that Else gains her own form of sanity, not because of the treatment, but as a way of opposing it. Else is never made an object by the objectifying medical gaze. Instead, she creates herself as an agent and a subject. She is defined as mad, but is determined to in turn define and describe the psychiatry as a form of counter-power.

    Att lita till läsaren: Om impressionistiskt berättande i Stig Claessons författarskap med utgångspunkt i romanen Brev till en hembygdsgård2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this paper – Trusting the reader: On impressionistic narrating in Stig Claesson's writings with the novel Brev till en hembygdsgård as starting point – is to examine narrative techniques used by the Swedish author Stig Claesson, specifically some which fall within the broad field known as literary impressionism: e.g. omission, repetition, juxtaposition, episodic narration and how access to the narrator’s as well as individual characters' consciousness is handled.

    The method used for the study will be that of illustrative comparison. The analysis will seek its theoretical grounds in the works by Gerard Genette and Jonathan Culler. In the major parts of the study, narrative techniques used by Claesson in the novel Brev till en hembygdsgård (1974), is examined with the help of Robert Paul Lamb and James Nagel, and their studies concerning the crafts of Ernest Hemingway and Stephen Crane. In addition, other novels by Claesson are used in order to find, illustrate and then compare his craftsmanship with techniques already studied and described by scholars and critics.

    The main result from the analysis is that a need to trust the reader follows from Claesson’s choice of narrative techniques; by having the narrating instance mainly represent perception – without allowing the narrator, or the characters of the narrative, to interpret what’s rendered – the reader is left to experience sensation on her own. To assist the reader, Claesson binds together his episodic narration with a frequent use of juxtaposition, in which colors, objects and scenes already used, are re-used – hence having one scene charge the next, and so on, with previously evoked emotions. Furthermore, Claesson frequently uses omission in conjunction with repetition as a narrative technique; often when the narrator returns to an already used scene, she is excluding some of the information given to the reader earlier in exchange for some previously omitted information or for elements belonging to other scenes. The study finds that a consequence of Claesson’s combination of the above mentioned techniques, is that his texts calls for a reader to take an active part in creating meaning both from the text and from their own experience.

    Finally, the study suggests that Claesson, like any craftsman, recognized that once the work is done and delivered, it is up to the recipient to use it according to their own ability, imagination and discretion.

    Bilder från Boo: Karl August Nicander – En Magus i Spådomskonsten2012In: Samlaren: tidskrift för svensk litteraturvetenskaplig forskning, ISSN 0348-6133, E-ISSN 2002-3871, Vol. 133, p. 166-222Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The essay describes a deck of playing cards with a short handwritten inscription by the Swedish poet Karl August Nicander (1799–1839). The deck is dated 1 October 1834 at the Boo estate, where Nicander was staying in the home of his friend Hugo Hamilton. It is dedicated to a female acquaintance, one of Hugo’s stepsisters, upon the occasion of her leaving Boo and returning home. Since there are no indications of any particularly warm feelings between Nicander and the woman, the versified deck should be considered as an unusual instance of occasional poetry functioning as a prestigious gift. The poet refers to himself as “A Magus at Soothsaying,” and the inscriptions on the cards were meant to be used during fortune-telling games. The tone is playful and light, as the games were more a pastime than serious divination.

    Interiors scenes of the life at Boo are described, with particular attention given to games, interest in the supernatural (such as divination and ghost stories), and occasional poetry; the different types of games mentioned include card games, patience, card tricks, and chess. Nicander’s position as a destitute poet living in an aristocratic household is touched upon. His letters and almanacs give interesting examples of occasions when he was expected to deliver verse during birthday celebrations for members of the household at Boo. The epithet ‘society poet’ that has sometimes been used to describe Nicander’s strategies in the literary field is thus actualized.

    Thematically, the inscriptions on the cards are discussed against the background of the rich flora of playing instructions and soothsaying games that flooded the Swedish market in the early nineteenth century. The popularity of card motifs in Romantic literature is discussed.

    A deck of cards is also a material object in which the pictorial element dominates. The interplay of the text and images on Nicander’s deck is analysed; the poet’s persistent interest in printing techniques and the materiality of manuscripts are contextualized. A deck of cards with playful, semi-serious occult inscriptions by the hand of a Romantic poet is indeed an unusual object, but at the same time it embodies themes and ideologies typical of its time.

    Dynamiska tecken i Clas Livijns Spader Dame2006In: Samlaren: tidskrift för svensk litteraturvetenskaplig forskning, ISSN 0348-6133, E-ISSN 2002-3871, no 127, p. 85-155Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the short novel Queen of Spades (1824) by the Swedish romantic writer Clas Livijn in respect to four groups of signs found throughout the work. These involve card games and playing cards, different designations for metals, proper names, and the titles of religious literature.

    The theme of battle is paramount in the text. This is already visible in the choice of “Queen of Spades” as the name for the protagonist’s beloved, as this card has been illustrated with a portrait of Pallas Athena, the Goddess of War, since late medieval times. Livijn’s main character, Zachäus Schenander, views himself as a righteous Christian crusading against the moral and aesthetic decay of his contemporaries, who are associated with the forces of evil. The virgin Goddess of War is his muse. Schenander’s pretensions of authority are, however, obscured by irony.

    The investigation of the semiotic and rhetorical strategies that Livijn employs emphasizes the dynamic nature of the signs he uses, that is, the differing and often contrary meanings of a given sign are actualized in respect to different points of view. This results in a text in which virtually every sentence undergoes numerous ironic twists. A central example of such sign usage is the “Queen of Spades” herself, who combines Schenander’s positive view with the negative views held by his antagonists. But the negative connotations, which also dominate Pushkin’s Queen of Spades (1834), cannot be vanquished. The poet-hero is defeated by the hostile corrupted world and is driven insane.

    I vänskapsfull åtanke: Ett brev från Lorenzo Hammarsköld till Carl Fredrik Dahlgren2014In: Samlaren: Tidskrift för forskning om svensk och annan nordisk litteratur, ISSN 0348-6133, E-ISSN 2002-3871, Vol. 135, p. 204-222Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The correspondence of the Swedish Romanticists is still largely unpublished. By publishing and discussing one of the many letters, I wish to illustrate some of the benefits of making the Romanticists’ correspondence available in critical editions. In this section, a letter from Lorenzo Hammarsköld to C. F. Dahlgren, written in 1823, is edited and commentated. The edition is preceded by an introduction, where I point to the important role that Hammarsköld played in Romantic literary networks. The letter reveals new information regarding the publication of several Romantic works, including Almqvist’s Amorina (1822). Further, Hammarsköld’s letter is discussed as an example of a particular epistolary style among the Swedish Romanticists, marked by humour and allegories that often imply a close knowledge of the reader.

    Främlingar i stockholmsskildringen: En komparativ studie av främlingskapsmotivet och förhållandet mellan dikotomierna stad/land och nytt land/hemland i Ivar Lo-Johanssons Kungsgatan och Theodor Kallifatides Utlänningar2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Målet med uppsatsen är att jämföra likheter och skillnader i gestaltningen av främlingskap i Ivar Lo- Johanssons roman Kungsgatan och i Theodor Kallifatides roman Utlänningar. Uppsatsen jämför förhållandet mellan stad och land i Kungsgatan med förhållandet mellan hemland och nytt land i Utlänningar. Socialpsykologiska perspektiv på främlingskap, identitet och acklimatisering i kombination med litteraturteoretiska begrepp från postkolonial litteraturteori används för att undersöka hur romanerna fiktivt gestaltar uppbrotts- och acklimatiseringsprocesser. Analysen indelas i förhållandet mellan stad/land och hemland/nytt land, kvinnans dubbla främlingskap, språkets inverkan på identiteten samt individens förmåga eller oförmåga att anpassa sig till en ny miljö. Det skildrade främlingskapets anknytning till en ny dubbel identitet analyseras för att tolka karaktärernas hantering av främlingskapet. Uppsatsens jämförelse av främlingskapsskildringar under två skilda perioder i Sveriges historia visar hur romanerna bidrar till en större förståelse för hur distansering från och diskriminering av ”den andre ” oavsett utgångspunkt manifesteras på liknande sätt och kan utlösa liknande identitetskonflikter för individen.

    Stories and Dreams, Memories and Secrets: Functions of Narration in Amy Tan's The Hundred Secret Senses2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this dissertation is to explore the functions of narration in Amy Tan’s novel The Hundred Secret Senses. The dissertation is divided into three parts: 1 ‘Introduction’, 2 ‘Analysis’ and 3 ‘Conclusion’.

    After presenting the writings of Amy Tan and my chosen primary literature, I give a brief survey of terms, theories and previous research.

    Part 2 ‘Analysis’ is presented in an order that corresponds approximately to the chronology of the primary literature, and will be divided into three chapters: 2.1 ‘Explain, Build a Relationship and Reflect’, 2.2 ‘Influence Thinking and Behaviour’ and 2.3 ‘Remember, Unify and Transmit’.

    Chapter 2.1 has the first half of the novel as its main focus. It is organised mainly after the clarity of the narrator’s voice, i.e. if the narrator shows (e.g. ‘indirect explanation’) or tells (e.g. ‘explicit explanation’), and analyses how narration functions in order to ‘explain’, ‘build a relationship’ and ‘reflect’ on events and other things.

    Chapter 2.2 elaborates on the narration that takes place before and after the trip to China, an event that divides the novel into two halves. This chapter deals with the function of ‘influence’, which can be seen as a result of the narrator’s authority and is summarised in the section called ‘Steps of Influence’.

    Chapter 2.3 delves into the functions of narration most visible in the novel’s second half, which takes place in China. The functions of ‘remembrance’, ‘unification’ and ‘transmission’ have many sub-functions in common, which could perhaps be seen as a result of the blurred perspectives in the novel’s plot.

    Part 3 aims to summarise the results of the analysis. A theme that recurs through the analysis of functions is the relationship and balance of authority between the two characters/narrators. Sometimes a narrator’s authority, or a shift in this balance, is a prerequisite of a function of narration.

    Att spela en materialistisk orgel: En intermedial analys av Erik Beckmans roman Inlandsbanan som ett musikaliserat berättande2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Erik Beckmans roman Inlandsbanan (1967) har, tillsammans med hans hela författarskap, både kritiserats och hyllats som obegriplig, med en berättarstruktur som aktivt bryter mot ett konventionellt, episkt berättande och anammar en försvårande, gestaltande skriv- och läsakt. Derrida diskuterar i Of Grammatology (1967) funktionen hos den skrivna texten som betecknande det betecknande, det vill säga betecknande det talade språket som betecknar den refererade betydelsen, och hur relationerna dessa sinsemellan förskjutits. På ett liknande sätt har Inlandsbanans textfunktion förskjutits från en episk berättartradition till en icke-muntlig, materialistisk struktur. Med hjälp av en inomkompositionell, intermedial begreppsapparat, och en hypotes kring ett musikaliserat berättande, där gestaltande former tar sig runt den muntliga språktraditionen inom litteraturen, ses Inlandsbanan här i ett nytt ljus och en del av dess påstådda obegriplighet redes ut. Allt detta sker integrerat i en diskussion av en intermedial metod för analys, som hela tiden har sitt stöd i Erik Beckmans roman. Slutligen manifesteras en diskussion i form av en analys av romanen med uppsatsens teoretiska diskussioner som grund. Detta fungerar både som inblick i ett i mångt och mycket förbisett författarskap, och i en terminologi för att hantera skarpt avvikande texter inom litteraturvetenskapen.

    Abstract [en]

    The article is an attempt to clarify the German philosopher Hans-Georg Gadamer´s late preoccupation with the temporal aspects of reading, particularly concerning literary texts, under the concept of Verweilen. It is my contention that Gadamer in his last three decades, before his death in 2002, develops his thinking on understanding texts in terms of Wirkungsgeschichte or Effective History in his magnum opus Wahrheit und Methode (1960), making reading more elastic, flexible and individually structured than before. Verweilen is a crucial concept in this process, dislodging aesthetical experience from the collectively shared historical time that prevails in his previous work.  I try to show that Verweilen, in the context of Gadamer´s intensified preoccuptaion with literary interpretation, is one link to the remarkable, "tacit" and "improbable", dialogue with the French philosopher Jacques Derrida in the last two decades that opens new perspectives on the status of literary hermeneutics.

    Ordens asyl: En inledning till den moderna exillitteraturen2011 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The book is a broad introduction to modern exile literature in eleven chapters, contrasting the exilic experience in the 20th century, making voluntary exile possible, to classical exile signifying banishment. The book claims that every exile is singular and resists generalisation. Therefore seven chapters are devoted to close readings of individual exile writers, representing different phases of modern 20th century literature: James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, Djuna Barnes, Witold Gombrowicz/ Vladimir Nabokov, Nelly Sachs, Paul Celan and W.G.Sebald. A chapter on Ovid and a backgorund sketch are attempts to delineate modern from classical kinds of exile literature. At the end conclusions are drawn as to the status of exile in a globalised world, characterised by radically increased mobility and communication across borders and languages. The book is also written as a pedagogical introduction to the field of exile literary studies at the university.

    Abstract [sv]

    Suckar, suckar äro Elementet,

    I vars sköte Demiurgen andas.

    Så inleds Erik Johan Stagnelius sena dikt ”Suckarnes Mystär”, den mäktigaste gestaltningen av melankolin som allomfattande Weltschmerz i svensk litteratur. Men vad betyder dessa suckar, där allt i skapelsen har sin boning, och vilken roll har de i författarskapet?

    Röster, blickar och möten: Om berättande och etik i Sara Lidmans Tjärdalen2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Sara Lidman’s first novel, Tjärdalen (The Tar Pit, 1953), addresses ethical issues in a remote village in the north of Sweden. This essay discusses the novel’s narrative technique and the ethical aspects implied by the narration and aesthetic design. The approach is based on Adam Zachary Newton’s narrative ethics, which links narrative theory and method with an ethical perspective. Mikhail Bakhtin’s literary theory and Gérhard Genette’s concept of focalization are starting points for the analysis. The ethical framework is drawn both from Bakhtin and from philosophers Martin Buber and Emmanuel Levinas. This means that responsibility is a more important concept than the collective and individual guilt that has been the focus of some interpretations of the novel. Furthermore, in the essay, the concept of dialogue is both a narrative technique and an ethical position, thus knitting together the different parts of the essay: how ideas, voices, faces and eyes meet and how the village interacts with the outside world.

    Tjärdalen’s design opens to a polyphonic analysis and the essay examines how the text’s ethical and intersubjective emphasis grows out of the composition – out of the arrangement of scenes and viewpoints. The dialogue between multiple voices continues in the representation of the characters’ inner life. Petrus’ character is constructed as open and questioning, inviting discussion, persuading and arguing rather than dictating. In the essay this way of life is defined as dialogic, as opposed to the monologic positions of characters like Blom and Albert. The essay finds, however, that the strong position of the narrator dilutes the polyphonic pattern. The examination of the narrator explores both her loyalties and the attitudes and worldviews that she rejects.

    Particular emphasis is placed on the analysis of Jonas’ character, as the plot starts and ends with his eyes. The symbolism of the eyes and of the face forms a parallel structure in the text, giving the ethical discussion a depth not achieved by rational dialogue and reflection. In the essay, this level is interpreted by Levinas’ ethics, where the face and the eyes represent a call to responsibility.

    At the end of Tjärdalen, the ethical questions are transferred to the wider society outside the village. The analysis explores two lines in this shift: One is how the spatial organisation of the narrative and the unchanging quality of the village life leads to a circular composition. The other is how the text brings social criticism back to its origin in interpersonal relationships: to meetings face to face and to the responsibility for the “other” that, according to Levinas, Buber and Bakhtin, is the basis of these encounters.

    Abstract [en]

    The article considers literature not as the victim of

    surveillance, but as an effect of it. A short overview

    of the relation between literature and surveillance

    serves as the background to an analysis of a few

    texts by Swedish poet and playwright Lars Norén

    (b. 1944). Two of his collections of poetry from the

    1960s are looked upon as reports from inside the

    mind delivered to the supervising reader. In this

    poetry, the information flow becomes too rich, and

    the intensity of the writing makes it finally unreada-

    ble – as if a typewriter has been directly wired to

    the brain. In the plays, the hallucinatory effects are

    produced by surveillance technology, but also by

    theatre itself. These plays put the audience before a

    physical force much stronger than that of the

    poetry, transforming the disinterested theatre audi-

    ence into a supervising authority watching but not

    allowed to act. The plays form a closed circuit from

    which there is no escape for either the characters

    or the audience.

    Göra rum: Elin Wägners Norrtullsligan och Pennskaftet ur ett rumsligt perspektiv2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien är en analys av Elin Wägners Norrtullsligan (1908) och Pennskaftet (1910) ur ett rumsligt perspektiv, med inriktning på genus. Syftet är att fördjupa läsningen av romanerna samt relatera dem till sin tids- och samhällskontext. Romanerna utspelar sig i medelklassmiljöer i Stockholm under tidigt 1900-tal, och handlar om kvinnor som omformulerar sina roller ochengagerar sig i bättre villkor. De centrala frågorna är: Hur gestaltas, representeras och diskuteras rum och stad i romanerna? Vilka rum använder karaktärerna och hur använder de dem? Den teoretiska utgångpunkten är att kombinera litteraturvetenskap med rumsteori, inspirerad av Alexandra Borgs avhandling En vildmark av sten (2011). Rummet uppfattas som en social produkt, med hjälp av begrepp från Henri Lefevbre. Studien relaterar till de tidigare analyser av Wägners romaner som gjorts med feministiska eller rumsliga förtecken. Studien visar att rummen skildras ur romanernas tydligt kvinnligt subjektiva perspektiv. Kvinnorna lever under alternativa bostadsformer men erkänner inte dessa bostäder som hem. De anser sig behöva en man för att legitimera hemmet. Vidare är kvinnornas tillvaro i de offentligastadsrummen sexualiserad och i romanerna hanterar kvinnorna detta genom att ge sig in i en identitetsmaskerad, där de genom att utge sig vara omoraliska skapar sig frihet. Studien diskuterar också arbetsplatser och rum för politisk verksamhet i romanerna.

    "Husets ABC": En rumslig läsning av Ulla Isakssons Kvinnohuset2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is a spatial reading of the Ulla Isaksson novel Kvinnohuset (first published in 1952) where the focus is on the spatial aspects of the novel and the House as a motif. Kvinnohuset is set in 1952 and revolves around a group of women who live in a residential building for single working women, Stockholm. The main plot is a love triangle between the director Tryggve, his wife Anna and his new mistress Eva, an actress. For the analysis I use contextualization on both an internallevel and an external level and an interdisciplinary selection of theories are used – performativity theory, spatial theory, narratology. The novel is also seen in relation to the historic context of socialdemocrat twentieth century Sweden.

    The house is found to function as a main organizing principle of the novel. The novel is also found to be a rich example of narrative space being intertwined with the social and emotional aspects of the text. The fabula revolves around the house – from Eva moving in to Anna being brought out – and narrating is often situated within the apartments, even when the events narrated take place in the city or elsewhere. The House is referred to as a creature, sometimes at the sametime referring to the collective of women residents as a social unit. The character of The House depends on the focalizor, and therefore shifts. Individual women characters' spaces are also used tocharacterize them and their relations – to the House, the novel and the narrative universe. The interplay between rooms and human relationships are thematized in the novel – each love affair isassigned its own space. The interaction in the stairways and the connection between the collectiveand the outside male world are also found to be central for the novel. In this thesis the construction of female and male in relation to homes and public space is also explored, since the novel is set in the 1950's when the idea of the woman as a housewifepeaked in popularity. The women are found to act as hostesses in their homes, using housework as acomforting practice in difficult situations.
