"Eldkroppen i jordkropparnas mitt" - Nyplatonism och marxism i Birgitta Trotzigs Dykungens dotter (1985)
Sammanfattning: The aim of this study is to uncover a neoplatonic discourse in the Swedish writer Birgitta Trotzigs novel Dykungens dotter (1985) (The Mud King's Daughter). This discourse is often interpreted as being an expression of Trotzigs catholic mysticism, but few of the earlier researchers have mentioned the strictly platonic influences in her work. Firstly; by analyzing the system of metaphors and the underlying philosophical premises in the text I aim to show that these are part of a hierarchical world view where life emanates from a single and undivided God. Secondly; I aim to show how this discourse can’t be separated from a Marxist political view on the modern society and its capitalistic materialism.
