Lugn disease : the female grotesque in the poetry of Kristina Lugn (English)
Abstract [sv]

Den här uppsatsen handlar om Kristina Lugns poesi, de kvinnokroppar som befolkar hennes dikter och hur deras agerande kan läsas utifrån grotesk och queer teori. Jag skapar en queerfeministisk figuration, döper henne till Den kvinnliga grotesken och låter henne ta kropp i dikterna. Hon spinner trådar mellan teorierna, dikterna och yttervärlden.

Metoden jag använder mig av är tematisk närläsning, med en bas av situerad kunskap enligt Donna Haraway. Med hjälp av de redskapen delar jag upp materialet i fyra tematiska delar; den stympade kroppen, den läckande kroppen, den trånande kroppen, och den djuriska kroppen. Mitt syfte är att utifrån grotesk och queer teori läsa hur kvinnokropparna i Kristina Lugns poesi agerar, och undersöka om agerandet representerar strategier för frigörelse från normativ kvinnlighet.

Abstract [en]

This essay concerns itself with the poetry of Kristina Lugn, the female bodies that inhabit her poems, and how their behaviour can be interpreted via grotesque and queer theory. Within, I create a queer-feminist figuration, I name her The female grotesque and finally let her corporealise in the poems. She spins threads between the different bodies of theory, the poems and society.

The method is thematic close-reading, with a base of situated knowledge according to Donna Haraway. Using these tools I split up the material into four distinct thematical parts; the mutilated body, the leaking body, the yearning body and the animal body. My aim is to employ grotesque and queer theories in a reading of the female bodies in Kristina Lugns poetry and investigate whether their actions can be seen as representative of strategies for liberation from normative femininity.
