All of which point out the strong relationship between the text and the Swedish rural community of the early 1900s. A relationship which is so closely tied to Tage Aurell's authorship that it is crucial in order to understand the peculiar mix of countryside realism and experimental modernism which... (More)

The study also examines the relationship between "Sommarspel" and other genres (lyric and drama). An examination which concludes in introducing the term hyper-architextuality. (Less)
