Extractions: Staff Welcome to NORDICA The Department of Scandinavian Languages and Literature The Department of Scandinavian Languages and Literature at the University of Helsinki is the only one in Finland combining teaching and research of Scandinavian languages and literature in the same unit. The Department offers a wide selection of undergraduate courses, trains researchers and produces new research findings to answer the needs of the Finland-Swedish and Finnish society as well as international linguistics. The Department has two degree programmes: Scandinavian Languages and Scandinavian Literature . The former programme caters both for students studying Swedish as their mother tongue and students studying Swedish as a second language. In addition, there is a programme designed for students focusing on the other three Nordic languages, Norwegian, Danish and Icelandic. The studies in Scandinavian Literature concentrate mainly on Swedish and Finland-Swedish literature, but it is also possible to focus on literature written in the other Nordic languages - Danish, Norwegian and Icelandic - or on other kinds of European literature.

Amalie Skram: Lucie. Scandinavian Literature Amalie Skram was maturing as a writer during the time of ferment in Scandinavian culture known as the Modern Breakthrough, and with her first novel in 1885, http://www.llt.uea.ac.uk/norvik_press/lucie.htm
Extractions: Amalie Skram was maturing as a writer during the time of ferment in Scandinavian culture known as the Modern Breakthrough, and with her first novel in 1885, Constance Ring , she joined the furious debate about sexual morality and the double standard which was being fought out at the time. She returns in her novels again and again to studies of contemporary life, especially of the narrow choices open to women. Lucie , her novel from 1888, is unusual in her writings in being a study of a "fallen woman", a dancing girl from Tivoli who is the mistress of the respectable bourgeois Theodor. Theodor is so captivated by her charms that he marries her, and tries to turn her into a respectable married woman; but she is not like other women and cannot become so. Her lower-class origins and her sexual experience create an unbridgeable gulf between her and the wives with whom she must now associate, and Theodor's increasingly brutal attempts to quell her independent spirit push her into actions which lead by inevitable steps towards tragedy. Lucie's fate is depicted against the backdrop of the late nineteenth-century Norwegian capital city of Kristiania; the author has an acute eye for detail, and the realistic descriptions of degrading poverty call to kind the writings of her contemporary Emile Zola. Through Lucie's eyes we observe as well the hypocrisy and artifice of the bourgeois life which is built on a denial of double standards, and the occasional refreshing honesty of women like fru Reinertson who are bold enough to think for themselves.

Extractions: web hosting domain names photo sharing Frans G. Bengtsson The Longships (out of print) Karin Blixen (Isak Dinesen) yes, this is the Danish author played by Meryl Streep in Out of Africa. Her voice is hauntingly unique. Her tales, influenced by German Romanticism and its dreamy, melancholic quality and extremes of emotion and idealism. Her characters are haunted by ghosts of their past or trapped by their own personal habits or cultural norms to fully profit from or enjoy life fully. These collections of short tales or novellas contain incredibly memorable characters and entertaining situations, like fairy tales for grown-ups. My favorite tales are "Babette's Feast" (great movie, too!!) about a French chef who prepares a sumptuous feast for an ascetic pietistic community in remote Denmark and another about a gentlewoman and her servant who take turns trading places on holiday, because neither can appear in public without the other.
