Wrath and Solidarity as Resistance : In Vad ska vi göra med varandra by Jenny Wrangborg and Som hundarna i Lafayette Park by Anneli Jordahl (English)
Abstract [en]

This thesis explores two literary texts written from a female working class perspective: Vad ska vi göra med varandra, a poetry collection by Jenny Wrangborg and Som hundarna i Lafayette Park, a novel by Anneli Jordahl. My aim for this thesis was to find out what kind of function war, seeking refuge, fighting for freedom, as well as experiences of these phenomena, have in the studied works. The categories class, gender, ethnicity and race have been interpreted through intersectional theories. The literary works have also been discussed by using concepts such as respectability, identification, alienation, solidarity, identity, wrath and cynicism. In conclusion, the study shows that the narrators identify themselves on basis of class to a greater extent than gender, and they use the experiences of other ethnicities and non-whites for comparisons with working class experiences as well as to create a common ground of solidarity. In addition, wrath appears as an important motive power in these works. Furthermore, the works got report book characteristics and lend voice to non-privileged groups of people, depict nuanced images of the alienation concept and show that dignity and solidarity can be used as rebellion against a cynical contemporary.
