These excerpts from Swedish prose works - mostly novels - reflect major shifts in mood and style in the 25 years since 1950.

The selections in this anthology range from the anti-ideological works of the postwar years to recent documentary methods influenced by Marxism, structuralism, and a renewed political consciousness.
