Ola Nordenfors, The Vision of Love in the Decadence. Hjalmar Söderberg and Richard Wagner.

This paper deals with the vision of love in decadent literature in the early twentieth century. This often light and ethereal vision contrasts strongly to the pessimistic and cynical view of life which is generally associated with decadent literature, and the vision is repeatedly related to experiences of music. The discussion mainly concentrates on Hjalmar Söderberg's Doktor Glas, but comparisons are also made to other texts by Söderberg, August Strindberg and Verner von Heidenstam. Richard Wagner's music and ideas of the human pursuit of love are here of great interest for the understanding of Hjalmar Söderberg's works.
