Abstract [en]

In this essay I analyze the meaning of the concepts home and at home and the feeling of coming home. What is a home and what different interpretations are there regarding the concepts of home and being at home? What kinds of feelings are aroused by coming home? The world we live in offers great opportunities to travel, which in itself creates a perspective on the meanings of the concepts. The world we live in also forces people to move from their homes, families and countries due to various reasons, which creates various problems and a certain urgency concerning the concepts. I describe basic terms concerning the concepts, both regarding concrete definitions and more abstract notions, and then compare them with my own reflections.

         Based on my writing project Coming home I discuss these questions in various ways. I also describe the considerations I have made regarding these issues and the impact they have made in the text collection. I present my own description of home as a result of and defined by the emotions this term creates and where the moods are decisive.

         The intention with Coming home is to offer different perspectives on and reflections upon the various feelings of coming home expressed by my own voice in the literary texts under study.
