    Astrid Lindgrens "mest problematiska bok": Ontologi, genre och funktion i Sunnanäng2014In: Samlaren: tidskrift för svensk litteraturvetenskaplig forskning, ISSN 0348-6133, E-ISSN 2002-3871, Vol. 135, p. 163-203Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sunnanäng (1959) has been described as Astrid Lindgrens ”most problematic book”. The reason for this is its ambiguous status, critics being uncertain whether it is to be regarded as a work for children or adults. There are not that many interpretations of it, and it is obviously hard to deal with. Recurring questions when it comes to the tales of Lindgren are genre and ontology. Are for example the adventures in Nangiyala, in The Brothers Lionheart, to be seen as only existing in the mind of the sick and dying Karl or not? The same type of question, which could be related to Todorov’s concept of the fantastic, is often dealt with when discussing the four tales in Sunnanäng. It is common to suggest that we are to naturalize them in a realistic way, i.e. as dreams or fantasies within the minds of the protagonists. This, however, often proves to be not that easy, although Lindgren’s text itself at times hints at this kind of interpretation. In this article I discuss these questions, exemplifying with the “problematic” tales of Sunnanäng. Lindgren treats similar motifs in different ways in different narratives, and she also puts different genres into play, making a special genre more or less dominant in each tale: myth, Christian legend, local legend, and medieval allegory, respectively. The article is grounded on a view on fiction which has the rhetorical strategy of a work as its main interest, focusing on how theme is generated and on the effect and function of the narrative and its motifs and devices.

    Att slås till insikt: Hjalmar Bergmans roman Clownen Jac1999Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study deals with Hjalmar Berman´s last novel, Clownen Jac (Engl. transl. Jac the Clown), written, broadcast, and published in 1930. Among critics a tradition has been established according to which the novel is of artistically minor importance but of great value as a kind of biographical and psychological "document" revealing Bergman´s opinions and innermost feelings concerning his art and his life as an artist. My interest in the work is of another kind. I regard the novel as a narrative structure manifesting its meaning through the plot. To assimilate the novel you have to answer questions like what kind of story and whose story you are reading. Its different events, motifs, and symbols must be seen in relation to the narrative as a whole. As my interpretation is carried out in constant discussion with previous scholars, I also hope to throw light upon some interpretative questions of principal interest.

    I argue that Clownen Jac has the same plot structure as Sophocles´ tragedy King Oedipus, the drama of a man deviating from the norm of the story but eventually being brought back to it by the force of destiny. As a "Künstlerroman" Clownen Jac stresses the conflict between the artist and the bourgeois, but the main conflict is within the protagonist himself - as in contemporary works like Tonio Kröger and Der Steppenwolf. But the heroes of Mann and Hesse can, in the tradition of the "Bildungsroman", shape their own lives in an agreeable way, while Bergmans´s hero has to submit to his destiny, wether he likes it or not. His initial mistake and hubris is that he doesn´t want to see himself as a clown by nature. He acts in blindness with disastrous results. Finally, beaten to insight he bids farewell to his illusions about love and ordinary life and yields to and accepts the conditions of a tormented artist. In doing so he becomes worthy of our respect, according to the norm of the novel.

    Vem är "Maja Lundgren" i Maja Lundgrens Myggor och tigrar?: Fakta och fiktion som ontologi, framställningssätt eller retorisk kommunikationsakt2015In: LIR.journal, E-ISSN 2001-2489, p. 221-240Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Maja Lundgren’s outspoken description in Myggor och tigrar (2007) of the male dominated cultural life of Sweden raised an animated debate in media. Well known authors and journalists felt themselves scandalized and accused Lundgren of being paranoid. Others claimed that the narrator and character »Maja Lundgren« was not to be confused with Maja Lundgren the author, because the book was fictional and not factual. In this article I discuss Myggor och tigrar out from different fiction theories and conclude that it seems most rewarding to approach the problem of fictionality as a question of rhetorical communication rather than ontology or stylistic devices. I also maintain that Lundgren’s book would implode if read as fiction, since the rhetorical strategy implies the identity of the author and the character.
