    Metaphor and Metonymy2008In: Selected Papers from the 2006 and 2007 Stockholm Metaphor Festivals / [ed] N.-L. Johannesson & D. Minugh, Stockholm: Acta Universitatis Stockholmiensis , 2008, 2, p. 3-24Chapter in book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    In this article metonymy and metaphor are described in relation to the notion of poetic meaning, the definitional feature shared by all types of figurative uses. Even if both these types of tropes will draw on encyclopaedic experiences, or pre- or extra-linguistic cognitive complexes, they are also formed in relation to established structures in a language system. In other words, their occurrence shows how intertwined linguistic knowledge and experientially based cognition will be. Moreover, it is arguable that at least “fully alive” metaphors will have a more noticeable poetic and figurative character than metonymic uses. The reason for this is that a metaphor brings together domains that are felt to be similar in some respect, although they are also clearly different. In this imaginative coalescence many features in the source are suppressed, and a kind of “fake” superordinate category is created: the generalised target meaning. It spans both the ordinarily concrete source and some other phenomenon, often something more abstract. The poetic or figurative character of metonymies is by comparison more inconspicuous, presumably because they constitute descriptive or referential shortcuts in relation to just one meronymically structured domain or chain of contiguous domains.

    The Plane of Uncreatedness: A Phenomenological Study of Anita Brookner's Late Fiction2001Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The investigation maintains that the late fiction of Anita Brookner exhibits an autonomous region of auto-affective experience. This region shapes the materialization of subjectivity in the artifact. The study proposes that the autonomy of the region establishes the ontological nature of Brooknerian reality as a priority of the uncreated over the created. Using Michel Henry's Eckhartian phenomenology of auto-affection as a methodological and philosophic rationale, the study begins by exploring the experience of emptiness and boredom in the late Brookner novels: Lewis Percy, Visitors, Fraud, Falling Slowly, A Closed Eye, Altered States, Undue Influence, Incidents in the Rue Laugier, Brief Lives, A Family Romance, and A Private View. After excluding extrinsic considerations by means of phenomenological reduction, the study investigates the aesthetic and ontological implications furnished by the tension in the late Brookner novel s between autonomous and non-autonomous spheres of phenomenalization. Following the terminological usage set up in the 14th century by the controversial writings of Meister Eckhart, these two spheres are identified as those of the uncreated and the created. This non-dialectical model of phenomenalization, refined in the phenomenology of Michel Henry, is used in the study for the purpose of clarifying the nature of abstraction in the late Brookner novel: it is demonstrated, especially in close readings of Lewis Percy, Visitors and Falling Slowly, that the extreme experiential reduction accomplished in the Brookner novel through ruthless abstraction of subjectivity leaves an experiential remainder which, in so far as it is a plane of emptiness or a plane of uncreatedness, is analogous to the non-figurative frontality forwarded in the paintings and writings of Wassily Kandinsky as the abstract but material origin of a realm of pure worldlessness. The study shows that the latent excitement discovered in the hidden truth of this plane is descriptively graspable in terms of an understanding of a key factor in Brooknerian real ity: the absence of transcendence. Although subjectivity's reality is firmly situated on the hither side of the world, and although that worldless sphere is essentially one of non-difference, subjective life is nevertheless crucially attuned to a sense of the contrast between two modes of non-difference: the empty and the uncreated. However, these two modes are not experienced as transcendent to each other; they are not two different phenomena, and the passing from the one to the other is not a transcending of a phenomenon but a discovery of its depth.

    Searing apparent surfaces: infernal females in four early works of William Blake1999Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the quality of the infernal as a specifically female expression of desire in William Blake's work. The contention is that the infernal constitutes an essential female element of the divine in Blake's early work but is demonized in the late work as an attribute of the Female Will. The devalorization of the infernal in relation to female desire has not previously been addressed by Blake critics. Therefore I initiate a critical dialogue with my mythological study of three female figures in the early work, each of whom displays infernal characteristics.

    Although Blake's illuminated books are unique inasmuch as they comprise a composite art with their intricate interplay of verbal and visual texts, most Blake critics focus primarily on the poems. I privilege the designs as a deliberate strategy of overcompensation for this literary bias. My exploration of "the infernal method" described in The Marriage of Heaven and Hell focuses on three particular designs that pictorialize the method's infernal quality in the form of a fiery female. I propose degrees of female desire on an infernal scale (the more restrained the desire, the less infernal the female) which are then examined in readings of The Book of Thel, Visions of the Daughters of Albion, and the color print Hecate. Beginning with Hecate as the most infernal of the three female figures, this study explores her mythological complexities as Goddess of the Limen, of the Dark Moon, and of the Underworld. Using the title page designs of Thel and Visions as points of departure, I demonstrate how the pictorial images work to lay bare the tangle of mythological roots underlying the poetic narratives that follow. Such roots provide perspectives from which to understand Thel's defiance of a system of female subordination to the male that Oothoon (protagonist of Visions) willingly embraces.

    The Animal Within: A Psychoanalytical Perspective on Shape-Shifting2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    As seen from cultural history, shape-shifting is a very widespread literary motif, which suggests that it has high inspirational power and general appeal. Shape-shifting has not been critically examined in the detail it merits: it is mostly examined as a part of other theories. Examination of Freud‟s psychological theories and modern literature such as Dracula, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and The White Wolf of the Hartz Mountains shows strong connections between the power of this motif and repressed animal instincts – an animal within. This connection usually manifests symbolically rather than as an actual representation of an unearthing of repressed material. There are connections to religious beliefs and a wish to be more than human which raises questions about what is implied by changing into an animal – less than human – shape. The relation between shape-shifting and repression causes an uncanny atmosphere about the motif, something which is used extensively in The White Wolf of the Hartz Mountains and Dracula. There is also evidence suggesting the possibility that psychosis and neurosis might manifest as a sort of mental shape-shifting. In literature this can be seen in the were-wolf Lupin in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and the Berserkers of the Norse. Examination of the Boggart and Lupin of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and of the Norse berserkers show that the empowerment of shape-shifting mostly lies in control. All of this considered, and with the lack of critical examination in mind, shape-shifting seems severely underestimated and under-examined.

    Vocabulary in advanced L2 speech2013In: Of butterflies and birds, of dialects and genres: essays in honour of Philip Shaw / [ed] Nils-Lennart Johannesson, Gunnel Melchers, Beyza Björkman, Stockholm: Acta Universitatis Stockholmiensis, 2013, p. 93-108Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While there are a number of studies of productive vocabulary knowledge focussing on writing, there are considerably fewer on speech. This study seeks to remedy this imbalance by analyzing the vocabulary in spoken production, examining two groups of advanced Swedish speakers of L2 English—one studying English at a Swedish university and the other resident in London—and one group of English native speakers. The three groups performed two tasks, a role play and a simultaneous retelling of the first 14½ minutes of the film Modern Times. To obtain lexical frequency profiles for these groups, Cobb’s software program LexTutor was used. The program distributed the lexical items in the transcriptions of the speech of the three groups over the first thousand (K1) and second thousand (K2) frequency bands, the Academic Wordlist (AWL) and an ‘Off-list’ containing items outside of these three lists. The results showed that in the Role play the lexical profile of the London Swedes was closer to the native speakers compared to the university students. In the Retelling task the two Swedish groups performed similarly, differing significantly from the native group. An additional analysis of the length of repeated words and sequences showed that the London Swedes were closer to the native speakers in both tasks, suggesting a higher degree of automaticity in this group.

    Grasses That Have No Fields: From Gerald Murnane's 'Inland' to a Phenomenology of Isogonic Constitution2006Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    By elucidating the isogonic structures of affectivity and landscaping in Gerald Murnane's novel 'Inland,' the study demonstrates the reductive nature of analytic models based on world-positioning. Since the constitution of a literary work does not involve the object-like units and displacements that are viewable in the realm of constituted worlds, literary theories based on the event of investigating worlds cannot clarify a literary text's self-actualization. Extrinsic procedures do not touch the core of the literary work of art. Nor do they touch the nuances of its surface texture that make it specific.

    The birthright and the blessing: narrative as exegesis in three of Thackeray's later novels2000Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation argues that the many narrative repetitions and allusions in Thackeray's fiction can be read as comments on and interpretations of each other and of biblical texts. Especially Henry Esmond, The Virginians, and Philip make use of reiterative strategies that have a close affinity with both midrash, classical Jewish narrative exegesis, and Christian typology. These two hermeneutical systems are used as models for a reading that takes the religious education in Victorian England into consideration. The study of significant similarities and differences between the fictional narratives and the Bible stories they rewrite shows that these novels are polysemous in that, like midrashic exegesis, they allow authority to multiple interpretations. However, in these novels the concept of caritas functions as a hermeneutical constraint, in the sense that, like typological interpretations of the Bible, the fictional narratives point towards the overarching value of neighbourly love.

    The novels are seen as presupposing an ethical response from readers in a time and context where literature was naturally considered as a guide to moral conduct. The Genesis narrative of Jacob's appropriation of the birthright and the blessing of the firstborn, in Christian tradition a type for the appropriation of the Jewish spiritual heritage by the Church, generates two opposed paradigms within the novels. Codified moral injunctions and literal applications of the biblical text are set against an attitude marked by the spirit of caritas, in what is interpreted as an application of the dictum "the letter killeth but the spirit giveth life." In addition, biblical narratives like that of the sacrifice of Isaac, and parables such as that of the Prodigal Son and the Good Samaritan, generate commentary on as diverse topics as the rights to political power, parent-child relations, incompatible obligations, forgiveness and moral indignation. Furthermore, inserted non-narrative genres are combined with narratorial intrusion to form a meta-fictional commentary on the paradoxical relations between narrative and truth.
