    Postclassical narratology vs. poetics: David Herman's "hypothetical focalization" as a test case2013In: Semiosphere of narratology: a dialogue of languages and cultures : an international volume of scientific articles / [ed] Ludmila Tatare och José Angel García Landa, Balashov: Nikolayev , 2013, p. 7-24Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article I discuss David Herman’s thesis about «hypothetical focalization» (HF), as it is presented in Story Logic: Problems and Possibilities of Narrative [1], in relation to different theories about reader interpretations (taken in a very basic sense) of narrative fiction. I will simplify the theoretical options to two approaches: the first is based on the assumption that fictional narrative is a secondary variant of factual narrative with the simple modifier “as if”. Accordingly, it is assumed that a fictional narrator informs a narratee about persons and events in a fictional world using linguistic means that work according to common grammatical rules. The alternative, advocated by theoreticians such as Käte Hamburger [2], Lars-Åke Skalin [3; 4] and Richard Walsh [5][1], is a “separatist” approach, which assumes that fiction is a particular “context” or “language-game”. According to this paradigm an author (or narrator) does not inform about objects but rather stipulates motifs that will have an aesthetic impact on readers. Such an approach can be described as pragmatic and it must, when used analytically, go from effects to poetics (in the sense of theory) since it cannot be assumed that certain forms have the same function or generate the same effects in different contexts.

    An important argument for the latter opinion is that the former theoretical variant will, if applied to literary texts, generate “disquieting” interpretations that do not fit in well with the intuition of readers[2]. This implies, according to the critics, that readers interpret fictional narratives from the perspective of another poetics — in the sense of an internalized rule-system[3] — than the one assumed by the theoreticians advocating the former model. The putative counter-argument that theoreticians like Gérard Genette in his analysis of Marcel Proust [7] have come up with what are taken to be good readings is met by the answer that these theoreticians did not read the literature in accordance with their own “method” [8].  

    [1]I do not associate what is called unnatural narratology with this theoretical approach since their very use of the concept “unnatural” implies that they assume the traditional approach [cf. 6].  

    [2] “Disquieting interpretations” is used to denote interpretations that seem to be at odds with basic intuitions concerning the language game and sense of certain texts.

    [3] When speaking about reading in this article, I do not refer to a professional reader but to the ability to read as a reader equipped with poetics — that is, a more or less conciously internalized theory of how to make sense of narrative fiction. I thus use the terms poetics to denote this “internalized theory,” or understanding of the rules and constraints of narrative fiction.

    The book and its narratives: a critical examination of some synchronic studies of the book of Judges2001Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    During recent decades, there has been a trend among biblical scholars towards applying methods borrowed from literary studies to the familiar texts of the Old and New Testaments. A major reason for this reorientation is the search for a meaningful and interpretable text; hence, it can be seen as a protest against the historical-critical school and its ambition to reconstruct an authentic text by means of a diachronic analysis. Synchronic scholars argue for a new understanding of the biblical text, claiming that the object of interpretation is the text in its present form, regarded as a literary production. Consequently, they can study texts that are commonly considered to be patchworks or conglomerations as meaningful literary works regardless of their pre-history or authorship. In this thesis I do not focus on studies that concern individual narratives or poems but on those that apply a synchronic approach to large units of texts such as books or collections of books. My example is the book of Judges, and the fundamental issue is whether the synchronists’ description of its structure and of the relationship between the individual narratives and the larger text is sustainable. Through analyses of the book’s introduction and the stories about Ehud, Deborah, Jephthah and Samson, I argue that the scholars under consideration are often compelled to form interpretations that are in conflict with a “natural” or “intuitive” reading. I hence claim that they are not reading these stories in accordance with the conventions that are generally applied to narratives. The arguments in which they refer to implicit devices, allusions and the structure of the larger text are assessed as unconvincing.

    I argue that that these scholars make two common theoretical mistakes. Firstly, they do not consider the specific restrictions that apply to “the literary point of view”. Secondly, they disregard the fact that narratives are autonomous and hence resistant to reworking. If several independent narratives are put together, they are not thereby transformed into a larger single narrative even though they may contain common patterns and motifs. Hence, the individual story represents the primary level of meaning and discrete elements are understood as motifs within a

    literary construction. The stories of the book of Judges are therefore texts within a text. This explains why the book lacks a coherent ideology or morality. The tensions and ambiguities in the book cannot be resolved by classifying it as a literary production and studying it synchronically: on the contrary, doing this confirms and explains the difficulties in the book – that is, the inconsistent character of both the book and its narratives and the bizarre events that are recounted therein – and its polyphonic character.

    Lindgren och Holmberg slår två flugor i en smäll: En studie om hur genrer kombineras i Kati i Amerika och Skuggornas Hus2011Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här studien syftar till att visa hur Åke Holmberg och Astrid Lindgren gör för att ackommodera läsarens uppmärksamhet från en genre till en annan genom en genreanalys av Kati i Amerika och Skuggornas Hus. Genom en berättarteknisk analys avser jag även att undersöka hur ett genreinslag kan användas för att kompositionellt motivera övergången till ett inslag inom den andra genren. Båda romanerna har en berättarperson som också deltar i handlingen men frågan är om de båda romanerna ger samma intryck av äkta sceniskhet?

    Analysen av Kati i Amerika och Skuggornas Hus visar att Holmberg och Lindgren kombinerar två olika genrer var, som går parallellt i romanernas handlingar. I studien kommer jag fram till att författarna använder den ena genren för att kompositionellt motivera den andra genren och tvärtom. Detta fenomen är något tydligare i Skuggornas Hus än i Kati i Amerika. Resultatet bekräftar även min tes om att intrycket av ett berättande jag är starkare i en reseroman än i en äventyrsberättelse med inslag av thriller. Skuggornas Hus ger därför ett kraftigare intryck av äkta sceniskhet i förhållande till Kati i Amerika.

    Att röja plats för tystnaden: Tage Aurell som prosakonstnär2012Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the 1920s Tage Aurell travelled widely in several European countries, and he lived and studied in Paris during this era of high modernism. At the end of the decade he decided to go back to Sweden, where he and his wife settled in the village of Mangskog. From this rural perspective he began to write his taciturn stories, often emanating from memories or relating to incidents he heard in the neighbourhood.

       Aurell is a prose writer with a very special idiom. In short fiction and novellas he gives vivid pictures of ordinary people in the provinces, living their lives mostly in dull circumstances – longing, loving, suffering. In this study I will describe, through detailed textual analyses, how he writes; my aim is to give an account of his narrative techniques and his personal style.

       In the first three chapters I give a short overview of important influences such as dramatic or lyrical techniques, ordinary oral language and impressionistic prose of Jonas Lie and Herman Bang. I argue that Aurell’s prose is not just a representation of reality, but an aesthetic construct including a great variety of fragments or building-blocks. It is a kind of laconic, stylized prose by an author who rejects detailed commentary or analyses. He is not a story-teller in the usual sense of the word, but rather a constructor organizing his material.

       The following chapters are devoted to analyses of particular works. Aurell’s first novella, Tybergs Tenement (Tybergs gård, 1932), has no plot on the macro level, but consists of several ”small stories” with an episodic structure of a kind. I examine the ways in which he creates pictures of individuals and collectives in the tenement, and compare this art with well-known Nordic novels about collective entities with common goals.

       Martina is a very laconic story about a vicar who has fallen in love with one of his confirmation candidates. It is a tragic story about loneliness, tough love and people’s expectations. This specific ”narration of silence” is analysed in detail, and so is the use of many minor characters who reflect the grace and difficulties of love. Intertextual relations and humorous or ironic passages are considered important contributions to the narration.

       The short story ”The Assistant Pastor” (“Vice pastor”) is an I-narration. In this chapter I analyse Aurell’s frequent use of irony in the story. Although not presented as an evil character, the first person narrator does not act in accordance with the text’s norms, so he must be regarded as an unreliable narrator. The reader can perhaps recognize the character’s lack of courage and his unability to choose, but dissociates himself from his opinions.

       ”Whitsunbride” (”Pingstbrud”) is perhaps the most well-known of Aurell’s short stories. In this chapter I describe his narrative technique, especially how he gives an illusion of wholeness through fragmentary parts of scenes and stylized descriptions. I also pay attention to rhytmic and acoustic effects in the text.

      In a chapter about the two experimental short stories ”Gatepost” (”Grindstolpe”) and ”The Old Highway” (”Gamla landsvägen”) my aim is to show how the fragmentation of a narrative text implies the creation of new forms. ”The Old Highway” is a piece comparable with modernist poetry. I show the resemblance with Guillaume Apollinaire’s poem ”Lundi Rue Christine”, and propose that Aurell looks at his rural village through the lens of modernism.

      In the last part of the study I shortly address questions about fact and fiction in literature. The aim is to show how Aurell’s laconic style can be used even in other kinds of texts than narrative fiction. Four texts are analysed, two factual and two fictional, and I show how the author makes use of narrative forms, mostly used in fiction, even in his factual texts. This can be done without transforming them into fiction. Artfulness in texts is not the same as fictionality.

    Närvarande i sitt språk: Om Erik Rosenbergs Fåglar i Sverige2017Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Pär-Yngve Andersson, Närvarande i sitt språk: Om Erik Rosenbergs Fåglar i Sverige (Present in his Language: About Erik Rosenberg’s Birds in Sweden)

    Erik Rosenberg’s field guide Fåglar i Sverige (Birds in Sweden) was first released in 1953, and has since then been published in several revised editions. In 2010 it was published once again, but this time without pictures and maps of distribution, just focusing on the originality and value of the text itself.   

    Reviewers of the book have recognized what they call literary values, but no extensive study of what this really means has been carried out. The aim of this study is to describe the characteristics of Rosenberg’s language and style, and thereby discern what separates his field guide from others.   

    An introductory survey of some important predecessors, mainly belonging to what has been called the Linnéan tradition in Swedish nature writing, is followed by a section where I discuss the difficult question of how to describe what we really mean when we talk about concepts like “literature” and “literary art”. The main sections are devoted to analyses of Fåglar i Sverige, including close readings of numerous examples from the text.     

    Rosenberg’s prose is rich and varied, and includes short narrative passages. He avoids lists of many very short, descriptive phrases, which are so typical of other field guides. He often describes birds in their environment, and there are many scenic parts in which we can feel the author’s own presence and his ability to create a lyrical mood, even as he stays on topic. Depictions are often charged with feeling, and even botanical names or nouns describing limited or uncommon kinds of biotopes, can produce poetic effects in their textual contexts. At the same time, readers may feel as if they are also getting firsthand information.   

    A personal use of language, for example a great many uncommon similes concerning bird calls and appearances, is characteristic of Fåglar i Sverige. Transcriptions of bird calls are frequently used, and Rosenberg is attentive to acoustic details in his descriptive language. It is possible to describe some of his strategies as a kind of “foregrounding”, although his primary aims are communicative and pedagogical, entirely in line with the genre expectations.

    Abstract [en]

    Time for a Paradigmatic Shift in Literature Didactics?

    An increasing number of literary scholars are involved in the didactic education of university students studying to become teachers. In this article I discuss the difficulties and possibilities of the task in a changing media landscape where reading fiction seems to be losing popularity. I argue that the paradigm in literature didactics has hitherto been rather one-sided, dominated by reader response-theory and pedagogy based on the high valuation of individual experience, but neglecting the learning of literary skills and strategies. However, several researchers have pointed to the fact that Swedish pupils seem to interpret texts in rather subjective ways, in a kind of private readings. They have difficulties in understanding fictional texts, especially when the aesthetic forms are unfamiliar.

    The study of literature didactics cannot be restricted to the reader response-paradigm, but must make use of other perspectives in literary theory. In my opinion, the future teachers have to provide a widening of their pupils’ horizons. They must read a great variety of literature together, talk and write about it, and discuss relevant interpretations. Teachers cannot neglect teaching aesthetics, and they must, beginning in the early years of schooling, explain to their pupils the value of literary reading. Learning literary strategies is important for anyone, but especially for low performing readers. I argue that literature has a potential for increasing the sense of individual freedom and cultivating one’s mind, but also that literary studies can provide argumentative skills and raise a critical consciousness. In the visual and interactive culture of our days, the study of literature can be an alternative opportunity where slowness and critical reflection is honoured.

    Tradera och kritisera: Barnlitteraturen som ideologisk arena i skola och samhälle2017In: Unga läser: Läsning, normer och demokrati / [ed] Åse Hedemark & Maria Karlsson, Möklinta: Gidlunds förlag, 2017, p. 155-167Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses children’s literature and teachers’ task of preparing young pupils for citizenship in a multicultural society. How can teachers help them become good citizens and simultaneously develop their individual personalities? Listening to the pupils properly and propounding democracy and humanist principles (such as gender equality) as expressed in the curriculum, are considered vital. The value of disseminating high-quality, varied literature is also emphasised.

    Various kinds of ideology and zeitgeist may be discerned in children’s books. The article discusses the question of how to respond if schoolchildren and their families do not unequivocally affirm norms in the books or the curriculum. Advocates of critical literacy are censured for tending to reduce the complexity of literature and life issues. It is argued that a good literary education takes both literature and young people’s varied experiences seriously. Open classroom discussions about norms in books and real life can bring about better understanding of others and their opinions.

    Överskridandets strategier: lyrisk romankonst och dess uttryck hos Rosendahl, Trotzig och Lillpers2004Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis I describe and analyse the concept of ”lyrical novel” in relation to concrete textual examples. Referring to Waismann’s open texture (porösität) and Wittgensteins family resemblance” I study texts that resemble each other although their lyrical features may not be identical. The language itself attracts attention in these novels. They often involve static descriptions, structural patterns of meaningful contrasts and symmetries, visionary or epiphanic moments. A conventional plot is often fragmented or attenuated. I argue that a reader of a lyrical novel imagines a lyrical language game, thereby focusing details and nuances in the prose text that might otherwise be neglected. After a short survey of the Romantic roots of the lyrical novel, I give various examples of novels from the period 1850-1950. The purpose is to give a broad description of lyrical techniques. The last three chapters consist of more detailed analyses of some Swedish novels from the latter part of the 20th century. In Sven Rosendahl’s Gud Fader och tattaren the narrative progression of the story is broken in lyrical passages of great strength. Some of them can be regarded as epiphanic moments. Birgitta Trotzig is in Dykungens dotter trying to loose the ties of sequential time, giving an all-embracing view of the characters’ circumstances. A hopeful identification with the suffering of Christ is at the centre of this modernist novel, where borders between inner and outer worlds at times seem to be of less importance. The plots in Birgitta Lillpers’ three novels Blomvattnarna, Iris, Isis och skräddaren and Medan de ännu hade hästar are attenuated. There are allegorical veins, but events are seldom of dramatic intensity. The language is full of feeling, and a reader becomes aware of a kind of ”lyrical lingering”, when the author affords each passage a value of its own.

    Vart tog brevskriverskan vägen?: En analys av Iselin C. Hermanns Prioritaire2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The objective with this essay was to compare the modern epistolary novel Priority by danish author Iselin C. Hermann with the epistolary genre during its heyday in late seventeenth to early nineteenth century. I especially looked at gender: the similarities and differences between the female character in Priority and the female characters during the epistolary novels days of glory. I concluded that Priority has the same structure, characteristics as the heyday epistolary novel and that the female character does not have any typical similarities with its stereotypical female characters. In addition I also came to the conclusion that she is reminiscent to their original model Héloïse and follows the epistolary novels heyday convention when she dies at the end of the novel.

    Den självbiografiska romanen: Fakta eller fiktion? - En studie av Ivar lo-Johanssons självbiografiska roman Författaren: 2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Under 1950-talet skrev Ivar Lo-Johansson flera självbiografiska berättelser som på omslagen också benämns som självbiografiska romaner; Analfabeten, Gårdfarihandlaren, Stockholmaren, Journalisten, Författaren, Socialisten, Soldaten, Proletärförfattaren, vilka skildrar samtiden, 1910-talets slut till 1950-talets början.

    Författaren, som jag har intresserat mig mest för i analysen, är indelad i tolv kapitel som i princip skulle kunna läsas fristående från varandra. I boken får vi följa Lo-Johansson genom arbetardiktningens genombrottsår i 1930-talets början. Den unge författaren möter det nya samhället i spåret efter Stockholmutställningen. Diskussionerna bland författarkollegorna, som endast omnämns med initialer, går heta. Några av kollegerna, bland annat Harry Martinsson, Nils Ferlin, Gustav Hedenvind-Eriksson och Martin Koch, presenteras mer ingående. I Författaren beskriver Lo-Johansson också arbetet med sin egna första stora bok, God natt, jord.

    Syftet med den här uppsatsen har bland annat varit att undersöka vilka faktorer, som vinkar mot fiktion eller ickefiktion, både textinterna och textexterna, som återfinns i den självbiografiska romanen Författaren. Jag har också undersökt vilken funktion de karaktäristiska dragen får i berättelsen.

    Metoden jag har använt mig av är analys av primärmaterialet utifrån framför allt ett narratologiskt perspektiv. Samt en komparativ analys av primärmaterialet i förhållande till den traditionella självbiografin.

    Tidigt i min analys kunde jag konstatera att Författaren inte gick att kategorisera som antingen fiktiv eller ickefiktiv. Därför har jag undersökt vad i den självbiografiska romanen som vinkar mot fiktion respektive ickefiktion.

    Exempel på sådant i de självbiografiska romanerna som vinkar mot fiktion är bland annat att det förekommer en hel del mimetiskt berättande, symbolanvändning och andra berättartekniska och stilistiska grepp som är mer vanligt förekommande i den fiktiva berättelsen. Ivar Lo-Johansson övergår också emellanåt till att bli allvetande som berättare.

    Att den textexterne författaren Lo-Johansson är den samme som berättaren och bokens huvudperson leder tankarna till den ickefiktiva berättelsen. Vilket också Lo-Johanssons avsikt att avbilda verkligheten gör, trots att han har fått kritik för att allt i böckerna kanske inte är sant.

    Paratexternas funktion är viktig, för att beskriva boken på ett sådant sätt så att författarens syfte med den framgår. De har också som uppgift att signalera genretillhörighet. Ivar Lo-Johanssons självbiografiska roman måste därför läsas som just en självbiografisk roman. En genre som blandar en berättarmetod som anses mer vanligt förekommande i den fiktiva berättelsen med en författarintention som går ut på att på ett sanningsenligt sätt avbilda verkligheten.

    Att Ivar Lo-Johansson har en avsikt med det han berättar framgår tydligt. Det handlar om att föra fram en åsikt, ta ställning för eller emot. Ofta är det samhällets orättvisor stora och små, som presenteras. Det sker ofta ur ett klassperspektiv och målet med skrivandet är att, förutom att framställa sitt eget liv, förändra samhället.
