Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to investigate how ethos and choice of persona are used for self-representation in the autobiography Kriget är slut (2010) by Morgan Alling. The essay uses theories of self-representation in accordance with Aristotle and Roger D. Cherry, among others. The method of the essay is a thorough close textual analysis, mainly in accordance with Stephen Browne's definitions. The result shows that Alling uses the persona to give a voice of narration and attitude to the story and that ethos is used to write narration convincingly.
