Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project is centered around Bjørn Rasmussen’s autofictional novel Huden er det elastiske hylster der omgiver hele legemet. The project focuses on the differentiating interpretations that arise between an autofictional approach and a post-structuralist approach. The post-structuralist approach leads to the novel being viewed as an autonomous text. The approach includes the notion of the author not being present which gives the reader complete freedom of interpretation. In this sense there is no one interpretation which can be said to contain absolute truth. The autofictional approach however, necessitates the use of paratext in order to gain an understanding of the author and his intentions. In this sense, the author is very much present, since he has placed his own self within the text. Thereby the reader is given the option to investigate the biographical cursors. Both the biographical and the fictional cursors can hence be either verified or denied. The author can thereby be used to open up the text and create new possibilities of interpretation. With the use of autofiction Bjørn Rasmussen places himself within a modern literary tendency, a new wave of authors that have established the revival of the author, by placing themselves in the very centre of their texts.
