Stylistic analysis and discussion on stylistics : A stylistic examination of Olof Lagercrantz and a discussion on the worth of stylistics (English)
Abstract [en]

This essay aims to examine two texts, one autobiography and one essay, by Swedish author Olof Lagercrantz, through the means of stylistical analysis and to investigate the worth of stylistics in regards of trying to capture the style of an author. The main questions are: Which are the distinguishing stylistic features of the two texts? and Is it possible to capture the literary style of Olof Lagercrantz through the methods of stylistic analysis? In aid of trying to answer these questions the methods of Per Lagerholm and Peter Cassirer is being applied. The results points to the autobiographical text being economical in language, dramatic, poetic and personal; the essay being intimate, formal, personal and creating participation. The methods of stylistical analysis is criticized for being a insufficient tool in the analysis, but its benefits are also pointed out.
