Popular Abstract in Swedish

I avhandlingen behandlas tre texter av den tjeckiske författaren Bohumil Hrabal (1914–1997): ”Mrtvomat” (från 1949), Denna stad är i invånarnas gemensamma vård (från 1967) och ”Legend spelad på strängar spända mellan vaggan och kistan” (från 1968). Alla tre texterna är sammanställda av textsegment valda ur andra författares verk och av fragment av avlyssnade samtal. Hrabal har med dessa texter skapat en ny litterär genre i tjeckisk litteratur, för vilken föreslås benämningen litterärt collage. En distinktion införs mellan collage, som betecknar en litterär teknik där övertagna element integreras i en ny kontext, och litterärt collage, där de övertagna (autentiska) heterogena elementen, till synes...

Hrabal har med dessa texter skapat en ny litterär genre i tjeckisk litteratur, för vilken föreslås benämningen litterärt collage. En distinktion införs mellan collage, som betecknar en litterär teknik där övertagna element integreras i en ny kontext, och litterärt collage, där de övertagna (autentiska) heterogena elementen, till synes slumpmässigt sammanställda, inte förenas av berättarens perspektiv. Det informeras även om andra collageartade texter av Hrabal och om hans bildcollage. Autenticiteten i flera av de textsegment som används i de tre analyserade texterna beläggs med hjälp av jämförelser med deras källor och Hrabals egna anteckningar bevarade i Litterära arkivet i Prag. Avhandlingen innehåller även en semantisk och strukturell analys av de texter av Hrabal som innehåller citat ur de undersökta förlagorna. Av undersökningen framgår att de flesta av Hrabals texter är förbundna med varandra med samma eller liknande motiv så att de bildar en enda makrotext. I de flesta kapitel diskuteras Hrabals anknytning till avantgardet. (Less)
Abstract
The main theme of the thesis is an analysis of three texts by the Czech author Bohumil Hrabal (1914 – 1997), namely ’Mrtvomat’ (’Mrtvomat’, 1949), This City is in the Joint Care of Its Inhabitants (Toto mìsto je ve spoleèné péèi obyvatel, 1967), and ’Legend Played on Strings Stretched Between the Cradle and the Coffin’ (’Legenda zahraná na strunách mezi kolébkou a rakví’, 1968). These texts are compiled of segments, selected from the works of other authors and fragments of overheard conversations. The thesis presents a theory that with these texts Hrabal has created a new literary genre in Czech literature: the literary collage. A distinction is made between collage, which denotes a literary technique, where elements adopted from elsewhere... (More)
The main theme of the thesis is an analysis of three texts by the Czech author Bohumil Hrabal (1914 – 1997), namely ’Mrtvomat’ (’Mrtvomat’, 1949), This City is in the Joint Care of Its Inhabitants (Toto mìsto je ve spoleèné péèi obyvatel, 1967), and ’Legend Played on Strings Stretched Between the Cradle and the Coffin’ (’Legenda zahraná na strunách mezi kolébkou a rakví’, 1968). These texts are compiled of segments, selected from the works of other authors and fragments of overheard conversations. The thesis presents a theory that with these texts Hrabal has created a new literary genre in Czech literature: the literary collage. A distinction is made between collage, which denotes a literary technique, where elements adopted from elsewhere are integrated into a new context, and literary collage, where randomly compiled heterogeneous elements, adopted from authentic sources, are not united by the narrator’s points of view. The thesis also gives information about several other collage-like texts by Hrabal and about his picture-collage. The theory about the authenticity of the sources is based on an examination of several sources for the three texts and of Hrabal’s own excerpts, kept in the Literary Archive in Prague. The thesis also contains a structural and semantic analysis of those texts by Hrabal, which contain quotations from some of those sources. From this examination is apparent that Hrabal ties most of his texts together with the aid of recurrent motifs; that, in fact, he creates a large macrotext criss-crossed of reciprocal relationships. In most chapters in the thesis Hrabal’s connection with avant-garde is discussed. (Less)
