Abstract [en]

In the autumn of 1934, the Soviet writer Vera Inber (1890-1972) made a three months’ journey through the Nordic countries. The journey was undertaken on the invitation of Swedish and Norwegian student organizations and friendship societies. She met with journalists and writer-colleagues, gave talks in Stockholm, Uppsala, Oslo, Bergen, Copenhagen and Aarhus and collected material for a planned book about life in modern Scandinavia. In numerous interviews she praised the victories of socialism, the successful solution to the “women’s question” and the visible role of writers in the Soviet Union. When stating that “it’s wonderful to be a Soviet writer”, Inber was in fact at this point of her career passing from being a talented, highly original author of short stories and poems to becoming an obedient tool in the hands of the Communist Party.
