Abstract
In this essay we will examine the memoirs of two former swedish prime ministers, namely Göran Persson and Fredrik Reinfeldt. We specifically focus on the ways in which the two choose to portray their respective power and influence. Our main finding is that Persson tends to highlight his on personal power and influence while Reinfeldt on the other hand tends to almost downplay his own personal role and instead highlight collective efforts. We opted to use a version of critical discourse analysis that is heavily inspired by Norman Fairclough's three dimensional model for critical discourse analysis.
