Abstract [en]

The poem in “the new world of peace”. The literary debate in the magazine Samtid och Framtid 1944–1949 (Dikten i ”den nya fredens värld”. Litteraturdebatt i tidskriften Samtid och Framtid 1944–1949)

This paper analyses the literature debate in the Swedish magazine Samtid och Framtid 1944–1949. The magazine was first published at the end of World War II on the initiative of publisher Johan Hansson. After an interesting start, the terms of the debate in the magazine were changed after a power struggle on the editorial level. Thus, the magazine never became the influential arena for literary discussions that it originally had the potential for. With their initial focus on how to construct a new post-war world, the debates in the magazine, however, provide interesting material for an analysis of a discursive struggle, in which attempts were made to renegotiate the position of literature in society. This analysis is conducted through a perspective that focuses on the debaters’ use of metaphors, but also their specific experiences of the past and their expectations for the future. Central oppositions between aesthetic and com­mitted ideals are highlighted, but also between individualism and collectivism. It is additionally demonstrated that the debates successively turned more concrete, focusing not least on the very influential Swedish literary generation of the 1940s.
