Äckellust : En läsning av Eva Sjödins Gränsland utifrån Julia Kristevas teori om abjektion
Abstract (Summary)Gränsland is a poetry collection by the poet Eva Sjödin. One distinct theme among others in Gränsland is repulsion and attraction, disgust and fascination in interaction. There is also a direction inwards and towards something. This essay is an attempt to analyse this theme. I will apply Julia Kristevas theory on abjection, a theory that explains these contradictory feelings and movements of the subject. The first part of the analysis is about how abjection is expressed through the ego in situations concerning eating, sickness and hunger and the colour red. The last part shows how the text itself expresses abjection, and becomes abject, through its explicitness and repetitive form.
