abstract

How can the individual find the road to emancipation if modernity, which promises it to him, turns out to be a cage? If he is ensnared and not liberated by social, political, economic and technical-scientific progress, lost in the labyrinth of the big cities? Works from the last decades of the 19th century by Ibsen, Bang, Strindberg, Obstfelder and Claussen show the acute perception of the dilemma, but also invite one to venture into the reading of the signs of the modern: a path with an uncertain outcome, but one that produces decisive results for literature. Heirs to Romanticism, Realism and Naturalism, open to the horizons of Symbolism, these Scandinavian authors inaugurate European Modernism.
