Great Literature Discussion: Women And Appletrees by Moa Martinson (Online)
March 16, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This feminist proletarian novel tells the story of the friendship between two working-class wives, Ellen and Sally. Set in the rural country and the industrial cities of Sweden during the 1920s, the book follows the parallel development of Ellen and Sally. Martinson’s novel was intended as homage to all the unrelenting women who fight to overcome the brutality and loneliness of their lives, and she suggests part of what keeps them going is an involuntary, unconscious female solidarity.
