Title With Captain Hellsing at the Helm : Sailing the Seas of Nonsense in Sjörövarbok
Author Sundmark, Björn
Date 2019
English abstract
The article analyses and sheds light on the nonsense techniques used in Lennart Hellsing’s Sjörövarbok (1965) (“The Pirate Book”). In this article, Hellsing’s it is argued, furthermore, that his nonsense writings are congenial with his role in Swedish children’s literature in the latter half of the 20th C as both a critic and a carrier of tradition. Theoretically and methodologically the study draws on the critical apparatus developed by mainly Wim Tigges. It is shown that Sjörövarbok is a prime example of nonsense literature, particularly in the use of repetition (names, verbs) and simultaneity of meaning.
