Abstract [en]

rspective [123][pdf.gif] The aim of this thesis is to study the Swedish Public Lending Right PLR from the authors perspective. I investigate what the Swedish authors of today think about the system for distributing the money in the Authors trust Författarfonden, and in what ways they want to change it. I also try to distinguish the authors thoughts about how the scolarships from the Authors trust are distributed. What kind of authors do they think are favoured when the money is distributed and what kind of authors are treated unfairly. Finally I investigate how the money is shared out in reality by using some of the literature sociologist Johan Svedjedals theories of the distribution, and compare these facts with the authors thoughts about how the money is distributed. In this part of the study I also use the French sociologist Pierre Bourdieus theories of the literary field and his theories of taste. I decided to use questionnaires to gather the information. It turned out that the authors want a clearer system that is easier to inspect than the existing system. They want to preserve the thought of solidarity that characterize the system of today. The distribution of scholarships should be more dependent on authors literary production than on personal circumstances. There are authors that believe that authors who write a certain kind of literature are treated unfairly when the scholarships are distributed. Some authors also think that persons acquainted with members in the Authors trust are more likely to become holders of scholarships. Finally the study shows that authors connections with publishers, the kind of literature they write childrens literature/juvenile literature, non-fiction or fiction, and their places on the literary field, tend to influence the distribution of the scholarships from the Authors trust.
