Louise Vinge, Länge nog… Om slutpassagen i prospektet till Liljor i Saron. (Long Enough…: On the Final Passage in the Prospectus to Lilies in Sharon.) 

In December 1820, Erik Johan Stagnelius sent out a prospectus in order to get subscribers to his collection of poems, Liljor i Saron. In this text, he explained his ideas of theosophy and his use of myths. He also declared that Poetry had hitherto debased itself by giving attention to an "unworthy object" ("ovärdigt föremål"). In his edition (1915), however, Fredrik Böök read "to unworthy objects" ("ovärdiga föremål"), thus creating an image of Stagnelius as a would-be reformer of the poetry of his age in general. This view was put forward in Böök’s many works on Stagnelius and has become influential. By reading the text in the original printing and in light of Stagnelius’s usual imagery, it can be confirmed that Stagnelius had his own previous writings in mind, not those of his contemporaries, and that he saw himself as a penitent and a religious convert.
