Almqvist versus Nyberg and Flygare-Carlén

Translation, reception and world literature

Yvonne Leffler and Gunilla Hermansson presented papers at a symposium dedicated to Carl Jonas Love Almqvist (1793-1866) on Södertörn University, Stockholm, 7-8 October 2016. Yvonne Leffler contrasted the translations pattern of the canonized male genius Almqvist with those of the far more successful women writers of the 19th century, Emelie Flygare-Carlén in particular. Gunilla Hermansson discussed Almqvist’s and Julia Nyberg’s presence and non-presence in anthologies and literary histories dedicated to world literature, viewed as a product of the distant readers of the 19th century.
