Abstract [en]

This article analyses the relationship between women, food and power in two novels by the Swedish feminist writer Elin Wägner (1882-1949): The Norrtull Gang (Norrtullsligan 1908), and Penwoman (Pennskaftet 1910). One important point of departure is Diana McGee's Writing the Meal (2001), in which she examines how various representations of food reflect the feminist ideas of women writers of the period and their criticism of the traditional roles of women in society.

The analysis shows that Elin Wägner utilises the representation of food to examine and criticise the condition of women in contemporary Swedish society. The critical aspect dominates in the first novel, where food serves as a symbol for the harsh economic conditions, while the second sometimes parodies the role of the housewife and food in order to destabilise traditional gender norms.
