Bellman, Hafiz, Anacreon: Gustaf Ljunggren and the Scale of World Literature (Bellman, Hafiz, Anakreon: Gustaf Ljunggren och världslitteraturens skala)

In his study of Carl Michael Bellman, literary historian Gustaf Ljunggren (1823–1905), com­pared the Swedish poet not only to the traditional object of comparison, the ancient Greek poet Anacreon, but also to the Persian fourteenth-century poet Hafiz. This article revisits Ljunggren’s work in the light of recent discussions about world literature and the role of his­torical scale in literary studies. It investigates how a change of scale, in large part due to the professionalization of historical research, created many of the prevailing assumptions concern­ing the proper object of Swedish literary studies and its possible connections to the literature of other countries. In Ljunggren’s work we find an interesting alternative to the view of nation and periodization that came to dominate the discipline.
