Here, Bjoerklund shows that Swedish literary discourses on lesbianism provocatively contrast with a widely accepted view that attitudes toward homosexuality have gradually become more tolerant. The lasting power of negative discourses upends the assumption that Sweden's progressive laws reflect progressive attitudes toward homosexuality.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Jenny Bjoerklund traces the theme of lesbianism in Swedish literature in a beautifully systematic way, covering the developments of the past seventy-five years. As the book itself claims, there are many assumptions about Sweden regarding its progressiveness on gender issues, and Bjoerklund provides valuable political and historical contexts in order to both correct and support some of these assumptions." - Susan Brantly, Professor of Scandinavian Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA
