Dag Hedman, The Battle in the Gustavian Field II. Kellgren's problematic attitude towards Leopold.
The Essay deals with the two most renowned writers of the Swedish Enlightenment, Johan Henric Kellgren (1751–1795) and Carl Gustaf Leopold (1756–1829), and their problematic contacts. The study is partly inspired by Pierre Bourdieu's field theory, and uses some of his terms as tools for the analysis. The decade-long struggle between Kellgren and Leopold is seen in a sociological light, rather than from an aesthetic point of view, as has traditionally been done by Swedish scholars. Both writers were fighting for a position in the cultural field surrounding King Gustavus III (1746–1792), and thus were bitter enemies, later reluctantly united against common enemies, foremost the writer and philosopher Thomas Thorild (1759–1808).
