Lesbianism in Swedish Literature: An Ambiguous Affair

Front Cover
Springer, Jun 5, 2014 - Literary Criticism - 213 pages

Here, Björklund shows that Swedish literary discourses on lesbianism provocatively contrast with a widely accepted view that attitudes toward homosexuality have gradually become more tolerant. The lasting power of negative discourses upends the assumption that Sweden's progressive laws reflect progressive attitudes toward homosexuality.
