Om Sidan

This blog will focus on the written word in all its forms – in literature, theatre, on the internet et cetera. But not just any literature, I will focus on the niched and mostly abstract art only. If you love Ulysses by James Joyce or On the Road by Jack Kerouac, this is the blog for you.

This blog, however, was first meant to be written in Swedish, as I am just a modest Swedish man having the time of his life while delving further and further into the literary world and all of its features. Having studied English literature in both the UK and in Sweden, I changed my mind down the road about writing in Swedish once I came to understand the lack of general interest in literature – especially darker, more macabre literature – in Scandinavia. I opted for a more universal, broader approach: therefore you’ll see me write a lot of articles and one or two thesis in English, but I will – of course – let slip a Swedish text once in a while. I reason that some emotions can only be expressed in your native tongue.

En stående inbjudan (nu stilbryter jag genom att byta språk mitt i en introduktion, men vi skiter i det) till Dig som eventuellt läser detta: vill Du absolut läsa om skandinaviska/nordiska litterära verk och/eller tycker engelska är svåråtkomligt som språk, speciellt när det kommer till lite mer analytiska essäer och artiklar – säg då till! Jag vill trots allt ha läsare och vill således nå så många litteraturälskare som möjligt, oavsett språk och land.
