Abstract [en]

The article deals with the attention in recent biographical research on agency and strategy concerning the individual’s prospects to shape her public image in relation to existing opportunities and constraints. The approach invites new perspectives on biographical writing that focus on change and progression. The biography of the Swedish writer Agnes von Krusenstjerna serves as an example of how the theories can be applied. The article furthermore touches upon subjectivity in modern autobiographical literature, a subjectivity that reinforces the claims of conveying the truth, but also points toward an external reality of gender-related social structures.
