Det kodade meddelandet - Metaforisk interaktion och dödslängtan i Per Olov Enquists Nedstörtad ängel

Englund, Axel LU (2006) In Tidskrift för litteraturvetenskap 2006(1). p.62-78
Abstract
Per Olov Enquist's 1985 novel Nedstörtad ängel (Downfall) is, despite its modest proportions, one of the most poetically powerful and intriguing works in his oeuvre. It consists of a number of disparate stories which are presented as intertwined fragments. In this article I argue that the novel as a whole creates its meaning in the manner of a large-scale metaphor, in which the different stories serve as the constituent subjects.
