    Från berättelse till berättarteater: Selma Lagerlöf och Västanå teater2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Samtalet kretsar dels specifikt kring den publikrepetition av Anna Svärd som vi står i begrepp att se, i relation till de övriga två delarna av Löwensköldscykeln, dels allmänt kring hur Selma Lagerlöfs prosaberät-telser har adapterats av teatergruppen Västanå teater, berömd för sin ”berättarteater”, med utgångspunkt i bl.a. myt, saga, musik och Pekingopera. Den kommunikativa funktionen hos den transmediala processen lyfts fram, och de olika sätt på vilka Lagerlöfs prosa i Västanå teaters tolkning kan sägas bli ett multimodalt skådespel med dominerande inslag av dans och musik, liksom vilka kulturella och socialatraditioner och kontexter som därmed aktualiseras.Samtidigt som det sker en remediering kan man i enlighet med t. ex. Bolter & Grusin förstå de nya medi-erna som redan inneboende i den ursprungliga berättelsen. I fallet Selma Lagerlöf är det särskilt relevant att rikta blicken mot teaterns konfiguration av modaliteter. Forskare som Ulla-Britta Lagerroth och Maria Karlsson har på olika sätt lyft fram teaterns roll i Selma Lagerlöfs verk. Lagerroth talar om en inneboende teatralitet i hennes prosa, medan Karlsson har pekat mer allmänt på det melodramatiska inslaget, som i sin tur kan härledas till teatern.

    Anna Swärdh, review of Bruce Boehrer:Environmental Degradation in Jacobean Drama. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press,2013. ISBN 978–1-107–02315–4. 216 pp.2014In: Studia Neophilologica, ISSN 0039-3274, E-ISSN 1651-2308, Vol. 86, no 1, p. 95-96Article, book review (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Boehrer’s study contains fascinating material, but its terminologicallooseness points to the lack of definition in the topic of the study as a whole.Still, the book is bound to be bought and cited, partly as a result of its attractivetitle and packaging, but also because of its broadness of scope and inclusion ofmaterial on and from a number of areas potentially relevant for early modernecocritical studies. It will force its readers to think about what ecocriticism canand should be.

    A straungier borne in Swecia: Helena, Marchioness of Northampton2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses on Helena, Marchioness of Northampton (1549–1635), and the formation of her identity as a Swedish woman at the court of Elizabeth I of England. Born Elin Snakenborg, Helena left Sweden as one of Princess Cecilia Vasa’s entourage on her journey to London in 1564/65, and remained there as Cecilia returned back home in 1566. Married first to William Parr, 1st Marquess of Northampton and brother to Catherine Parr, and later to Thomas Gorges, courtier and Groom of the Chamber, an important part of her life was spent at or in contact with Elizabeth’s court. Edmund Spenser refers to her in Colin Clouts Come Home Againe and also dedicated a poem to her, while Helena herself corresponded in Swedish, English, and Latin with among others her mother, with Lord Chamberlain Thomas Ratcliffe, 3rd Earl of Sussex, and with the future King Charles IX of Sweden. Together with her second husband she built the architecturally interesting Langford (now Longford), and their burial monument in Salisbury Cathedral is similarly intriguing. This paper examines the early part of her life in England, drawing on letters and contemporary and near-contemporary accounts to show how they articulate or realize the identity of a woman in a foreign country and culture who seemingly adapts to and adopts that culture with ease and determination.

    Cecilia Vasas resa till England2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta paper undersöker hur Cecilia Vasa (1540–1627) framställs som gränsöverskridande i en samtida engelsk redogörelse för hennes resa från Sverige till London 1564–65. Cecilia Vasa var en stor beundrare av Elisabeth I (1533–1603), och hade lärt sig engelska och korresponderat med den engelska drottningen innan resan ägde rum. Hon förblev i London till Maj 1566, och James Bells Narrative of the Journey of Princess Cecilia, Daughter of Gustavus I of Sweden…, dedicerad till Elizabeth I, tycks ha skrivits under eller strax efter hennes besök. Flera av Cecilias aktiviteter i samband med denna resa kan berättiga epitet gränsöverskridande, och detta paper fokuserar på hur Bells berättelse kan ses som bidragande till en sådan uppfattning av henne. Genom att undersöka framställningen av Cecilia från ett retoriskt perspektiv kommer detta paper att visa på hur aspekter som berättarkommentarer och klassiska referenser används för att porträttera Cecilia på ett närmast mytologiskt eller episkt vis. Möjligen kan denna tidigmoderna reseberättelse ses som ett tidigt exempel på den fiktionalisering av Cecilia Vasas liv vi senare möter i t.ex. svenska romaner från 1800- och 1900-talen.

    Hiding the Peacock’s Legs: Rhetoric, Cosmetics, and Deception in Shakespeare’s Lucrece and Trussell’s Hellen2015In: European Journal of English Studies, ISSN 1382-5577, E-ISSN 1744-4233, Vol. 19, no 2, p. 148-162Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay explores rhetorical and cosmetic deception in William Shakespeare’s The Rape of Lucrece (1594) and John Trussell’s Raptus I Helenae. The First Rape of Faire Hellen (1595). The essay focuses on instances of ‘colouring’ and ‘cloaking’ in the poems, terms used by contemporary rhetoricians to describe their art, to show how tensions between rhetorical skill and anxieties related to rhetorical deception are played out. Shakespeare and Trussell both employ narratorial commentary together with cloaking imagery to mark the rapists’ rhetorical dissembling as morally despicable, whereas other strategies are used to portray the women’s rhetorical and cosmetic cloaking and colouring as more defensible, if not completely unambiguous, forms of self-representation.

    ‘Much augmented‘ and ‘somewhat beautified’: Revisions in Three Female Complaints of the 1590s.2016In: Modern philology, ISSN 0026-8232, E-ISSN 1545-6951, Vol. 113, no 3, p. 310-330Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay focuses on revisions in Samuel Daniel’s The Complaint of Rosamond (1592, rev. 1594), Thomas Churchyard’s Shores Wife (1563, rev. 1593), and Michael Drayton’s Matilda (1594, rev. 1596), examining intrageneric connections visible in the revisions as indicative of a dialogic process of genre formation in the complaint group. The essay argues that Churchyard’s, Daniel’s and Drayton’s revised versions to an important extent were “corrected,” “augmented,” or “beautified” in dialogue with other poems in the complaint group, and that this affected the shape of the revisions and, by extension, of the genre as a whole. By exploring specifically the three complaints that were thoroughly revised in the 1590s, and by charting revisions as well their effects, the analysis points to differences between the revisions, but also indicates that they have a number of tendencies in common: all three revised poems are longer than the original versions, and all add focus on their heroines; elaborated descriptions of beauty, added or expanded speeches, and increased emotional focus all seem designed to heighten drama as well as reader sympathy, and they make for more developed characterization. Mrs. Shore’s competitive boasting of her beauty, Rosamond’s warnings against the miseries of marrying an older man, and Matilda’s paradoxical rhetoric are some features that were expanded on by Churchyard, Daniel, and Drayton. Disparate as the examples may seem in isolation, this essay shows how they can still be described as developing or changing the scale of a topic already existing in the repertoire of the female complaint. Seemingly designed to strengthen the cases for the individual complaint heroines, at times, though, some additions can be seen to undermine the assumed intention, thus contributing to the self-contradictory characteristic of many complaints. The shining exception that proves the rule is Matilda, the chaste heroine whose saintliness is almost complete in Drayton’s 1596 text. The essay thus shows that by tracing the emulative dialogue behind the revisions, we can understand on the one hand why the revised complaints show certain features, and on the other how the genre was shaped in an ongoing dialogue between poets and poems.

    The 1904 discovery of the Titus Andronicus First Quarto in Sweden2016In: Library, ISSN 0024-2160, E-ISSN 1744-8581, Vol. 17, no 4, p. 424-445Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The first quarto of Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus, printed in 1594, exists in a unique copy owned by The Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D. C. The volume was discovered in Sweden in November 1904, and purchased by Henry Folger in January 1905. This essay traces the Swedish reactions to the discovery and sale through letters, postcards, telegrams, newspaper articles, photographs, and court documents. In the surviving documents, we can see that at stake was the volume’s monetary value. Nevertheless the negotiations to establish this value soon came to involve other issues such as artistic quality, academic and professional prestige, philanthropic importance, and the peace of mind, as well as health, of individuals involved. The essay pays special attention to the activities of Lund University librarian Evald Ljunggren in furthering the sale but also in contributing information to the academic community.
