A New Generation – An Innovated Tradition? Strategies of Class Politics in Contemporary Swedish-Language Working-Class Literature (En ny generation – en förnyad tradition? Klasspolitiska strategier i samtida svenskspråkig arbetarlitteratur)

The aim of this article is to analyze how the emergence in recent years of a new generation of working-class writers has contributed to the development of the tradition of Swedish working-class literature. First, I investigate these writers’ representations of class and class injustice. Thereafter, I discuss how the attempts by contemporary working-class writers to innovate the tradition of working-class literature, by breaking with the realism usually considered to be its aesthetic backbone, have made it possible to use this tradition as a platform for literary critique of class injustice.
