Crisis, Paperback / softback Book

Description

Malin Forst is a precocious, devout twenty-year-old woman attending a Stockholm teachers' college in the 1930s.

Confounded by a sudden crisis of faith, Malin plunges into a depression and a paralysis of will.

Oscillating between poetic prose, social realism, fragments of correspondence, and imagined dialogues between the forces of nature, Crisis telescopes Malin's distress out into metaphysical planes and back, as her mind stages struggles between black and white, Dionysian and Apollonian, and with an everyday existence that has become unbearably arduous. And then an intense infatuation with a classmate reorients everything.
