Abstract [sv]

Uppsatsens syfte har varit att läsa Karin Smirnoffs roman Jag for ner till bror, och genom en marxistisk litteraturanalys undersöka huruvida romanen kan klassificeras som samtida arbetarlitteratur, och därigenom försöka ge perspektiv på diskussionen om arbetarlitteratur, och även frågan om vem som egentligen kan räknas till arbetare i dag. Undersökningen försöker visa på det traditionella arbetarlitteraturbegreppets komplexitet när det kommer till att klassificera samtida litterära verk. Frågeställningen som undersökningen utgår från är om det går att klassificera Karin Smirnoffs roman Jag for ner till bror som en samtida arbetarlitteratur, och i så fall enligt vilka kriterier? I undersökningen analyserar jag romanen, tillsammans med en marxistisk litteraturanalys, samt den traditionella arbetarlitteraturens definitioner, utifrån tre olika perspektiv; klass och kroppsliga effekter; klass och geografisk demografi samt klass och språkliga aspekter. Resultatet av denna undersökning kommer att visa att romanen Jag for ner till bror kan klassificeras samtida arbetarlitteratur.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay has been to read Karin Smirnoff's novel Jag for ner till bror and through a Marxist literature analysis investigate whether the novel can be classified as contemporary workers literature, and thereby trying to give perspective on the discussion of workers literature. Also the question of who actually can be counted as a worker today will be discussed. The study seeks to demonstrate the complexity of the traditional concept of worker´s literature when it comes to classifying contemporary literary works. The question from which the study is based, is whether it is possible to classify Karin Smirnoff's novel Jag for ner till bror as a contemporary worker's literature, and if so, according to which criteria? In the study, I analyze the novel, together with a Marxist analysis of literature, as well as the definitions of traditional worker´s literature, from three different perspectives; class and bodily effects; class and geographical demographics, and class and linguistic aspects. The result of this study will show that the novel Jag for ner till bror can be classified as a contemporary workers literature.
