Abstract [en]

This article examines the influence of American short story writers on the Swedish short story during two peak periods, the 1940s and 1994-2002. It distinguishes between direct and indirect influence, the former characterized by the Swedish author's acknowledgment of such an influence and corroborative evidence in his/her short stories, the latter influence going via an author directly influenced by an American author. The two dominant short story writers impacting the Swedish scene were Ernest Hemingway and Raymond Carver, particularly the former who also in the nineties had both a direct and an indirect influence.
