En samling verk : En intertextuell kartläggning av Lydia Sandgrens debutroman

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Umeå universitet/Institutionen för kultur- och medievetenskaper

Sammanfattning: In this essay, I examine the intertextuality of Lydia Sandgren's debut novel Collected Works (2020). Throughout the novel, references to other literary works is constantly made, such as books by Ernest Hemingway, Ulf Lundell, Jack Kerouac, Klas Östergren, Simone de Beauvoir and Sigmund Freud. The question I work with is as follows: What are the functions of the intertexts in Collected Works? Who is the narrator who places the intertexts, and how does he or she evaluate this literature?     As far as the theory is concerned, I start with Gérard Genette's book Palimpsestes, in which he divides the concept of intertextuality into five subcategories. The ones I use in this essay are intertextuality (which includes quotations, allusions and plagiarism) and hypertextuality (which has to do with the relationship between the new text and the original text). Harold Bloom's way of looking at intertextuality, that there is some kind of power struggle between the poet and its predecessors, is found in the main character in Collected Works. Bloom's concepts of clinamen (the successor tries to twist the previous work to where it should have been) and apophrades (the successor takes the position of his predecessor) are clearly visible in the main character Martin Berg.
