Jordnära samband: Om transtextualitet och bygderealistisk modernism i Tage Aurells novell "Sommarspel"
2014 (Swedish)In: Tidskrift för litteraturvetenskap, ISSN 1104-0556, E-ISSN 2001-094X, Vol. 44, no 1Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article uses Gérard Genette's theories on transtextuality in an attempt to explore the meaning of Tage Aurell's (1895--1976) "Sommarspel" ("Summer Game") from the short story collection Nya berättelser (New Stories) of 1949. The article analyzes the relaitons between this short story and earlier texts, such as the biblical myths of David and Goliath and David and Bathsheba, a poem by Dan Andersson, and an excerpt from the operetta Sköna Helena (La belle Hélène) by Offenbach. All of these relations highlight the strong relationship between "Sommarspel" and the Swedish rural community of the early 1900's. This relationship is so closely tied to Aurell's authorship that it must be considered in order to understan the peculiar mix of regionalism and modernism which constitutes Aurell's short stories.
