Litterære perspektiver på steder

Julie Marie Jensen & Clara Mie Moesgaard Lech

Studenteropgave: Fagmodulprojekt


The purpose of this project is to examine how literary places affects the speaker in poetry. Literary works usually draws usage of descriptions of settings and milieu and therefore, this project wishes to obtain an understanding of what a place can be defined as. Furthermore, this project examines two aspects; the definition of a place in general and thereafter places in poetry. Firstly, the project draws usage of theory and literature by Anne-Marie Mai & Dan Ringgaard, and Louise Mønster in order to explore how places are defined by aforementioned. Furthermore, Mai & Ringgaard draws usage of Tim Cresswell. Cresswell describes the importance of the subjective perception; a person has to acknowledge a place before it is possible to define it as exactly that. Furthermore, this project seizes to examine the view on urban life in the twentieth century, drawing usage of two poets; Emil Bønnelycke, whose poems were published in 1918, and Michael Strunge, whose poems were published in 1981. Through thorough analysis of two poems by each of aforementioned poets, this project features the conclusion that Bønnelycke and Strunge each have very different views on urban life, whereas Bønnelycke’s view is positive and Strunge’s view is negative. Lastly, the project argues that the reason that these views differ might be that Bønnelycke and Strunge lived in two different periods in the twentieth century.
