Witchcraft and Magic in the Nordic Middle Ages (review)

Abstract

expect opposition to her literary existence ("Konsten att välja rätt mask," Retoriska frågor, ed. C. Åsberg [Stockholm: Norstedts, 1995], 98­111). There is clearly more going on in these longer poems than Brenner's romantic critics gave her credit for. My criticism of the new volume is that only three of Brenner's longer poems are actually included: see pages 157, 173, and 323. The best way to puzzle out the rhetorical feminist issues raised in Brenner's convoluted style is to ponder their lengthy passages, with all their periodic sentences, poetic inversions, and masking. In other words, the volume Wår lärde Skalde-Fru begs for access to more material. As luck would have it (although the editors make no particular noise about this), Vitterhetssamfundets' edition of Poetiska Dikter 1713 may be downloaded in pdf form: http://litteraturbanken.se/#!forfattare/BrennerSE/titlar/SamladeDikter/sida/I/pdf. Less fortunately for the Brenner enthusiast, the other half of her work (i.e. Andra delen af Sophia Elisabeth Brenners poetiske dikter ... 1732), which is just as important for this discussion as the collection from 1713, has not yet appeared in the new edition and at this date may only be found as a rare volume in a few libraries or in the obscure Hanselli edition
