Abstract [en]

This essay examines through narratology how time and space are conveyed to the reader in the play Idlaflickorna by author Kristina Lugn. I seek answers in the text that has no stage directions and no description of characters or the space where the action takes place. The information given about time and space in the dialogue is contradictory. By using Mieke Bals Narratology – Introduction to the Theory of Narrative with focus on the chapters on time and space in story and fabula. I suggest that time is not only a tool to construct the text but the main theme that ties the story together. The contradictory information about where the characters are, create a new space in-between or parallel to the story being told.

I have also used Gérard Genettes definition of narrative anachronism to further describe the construction of the story and what effects narrative anachrony has on the fabula.
