Konferensbidrag (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
- This paper treats the reception in the Swedish literary field of the group of poets in Dutch literature known as ‘De Vijftigers’ and of some other authors of the same generation (the 1950’s). The model used was created by the French cultural sociologist Pierre Bourdieu. As the literary field is developing constantly, I am also indebted to views of the Israeli scholar Itamar Even-Zohar who created the term ‘polysystem’, meaning field wherein several paradigms coexist. According to his theory, the succes of reception in a foreign field should be due to the need and receptivity of the receiving polysystem. But this is not enough as an explanation. I would like to add the notion of hazard. There must be a suitable constellation of enthusiastic and gifted missionaries and helpers at the psychological moment. Those actors should have a certain status or prestige in the fields concerned, such as the literary field, the academic field, or the political field.
