Abstract [en]

This essay contents a theme-centred study of Elsa Grave’s poetry. It presents an all-pervading featured doom-theme and illuminates three motifs and attitudes through which the theme is featured. The presentation includes analyses that bear in mind the double perspectives within Grave’s poems – the subjective and the universal, where also an omnipresent political attitude is represented. The structure of the essay is constituted in the division of the three motifs: an-nihilation and resignation, motherhood and opposition and underworld and retrogression. Symbols adhered to the theme is presented and analysed in the examining text. The study uses and relates to facts about Graves’ life and recounts for her childhood’s visit in a mine that reflects in the metaphorical language of the poems. The survey exposition shows how Grave’s writing thematic and symbolic consistently returns to the underworld of the mine, where also the study comes down and finishes.
