    Incarnations of Lilith?: The Snow Queen in Literature for Young Readers2009In: Cold matters: cultural perceptions of snow, ice and cold, Umeå: Umeå University and Royal Skyttean Society , 2009, p. 175-190Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In folk tales, good women are contrasted with evil ones. One specific kind of evil women are the snow queens, for example those depicted in Hans Christian Andersen's tales The Snow Queen and "The Ice Maiden." Other examples are the White Witch in the Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis and Mrs Coulter in Philip Pullman's trilogy His Dark Materials. The realms of the snow queens are cold, frozen and sterile landscapes always covered with snow and ice - a symbol of their cold and dangerous sexuality. The queens are powerful women, beautiful, seductive and rebellious against patriarchal structures. They can be seen as incarnations of Lilith, Adam's first wife, and as female vampires, constantly looking for new victims. The only way of escaping being seduced by a snow queen is to be rescued by true and eternal love. Women with a desire for power and independence have to live their lives without love and are doomed to a cold and lonely existence. In this way, the snow queen stories support patriarchal gender ideologies.

    Peter Pohls litterära projekt: en tematisk studie med utgångspunkt i debutromanen Janne, min vän2008Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In his literary works, the Swedish author Peter Pohl (b. 1940) persistently deals with the issue of friendship which is described as a source of joy and consolation as well as a cause for difficulties and pain. Another common theme in his writing is vulnerability, especially that of children and adolescents, as he regards them as particularly exposed to violence and injustice. Pohl features the act of telling as an important instrument in the process of personal development on many different levels. Finally, his authorship shows that his purpose is to be a spokesman for those who cannot speak for themselves. These four topics which are visible in the main part of his production represent the most important aspects of Pohl's literary project which may be described as a desire to improve the conditions of less privileged groups of society.This thesis deals with the works by Pohl written between 1985 and 2007. In the first chapter, the author is presented. The second chapter is an analysis of his first novel Janne, min vän with a special focus on the above-mentioned themes. Chapter three deals with the novel Malins kung Gurra, a story for young readers that can be looked upon as second, but simpler version of Janne, min vän. In chapter four, the five novels Regnbågen har bara åtta färger, Medan regnbågen bleknar, Vi kallar honom Anna, Vilja växa and Klara papper är ett måste are analyzed and discussed. The last chapter is an attempt at dealing with the remaining books written by Pohl. The aim is to establish whether these works are compatible with the general picture given of Pohl's literary project.
