Women and Appletrees : Needs, class and societal changes (English)
Abstract [en]

The intention of this essay is to shine a light on an often overlooked aspect of Moa Martinsons debut novel Kvinnor och äppelträd. With the help of psychologist Abraham H. Maslows hierachy of needs the novels enormous focus on the working class’ life premises and how social standing affects the daily life of the depicted individuals are exposed. With marxist literary theorist György Lukács’s perspective on the connection between individuals and society, the consequences societal changes have on the working class come to light. Lukács’s thoughts on realistic literature and the unbreakable bond between an individual and their context, also works as a premise for questioning some of the more established research on Kvinnor och äppelträd. With these two points of view as a theoretical base, what emerges is a narrative where class related struggles are in the foreground rather than the background.
